Google Pixel XL purportedly shows up again in leaked photos
Can’t get enough of images that purportedly show Google’s Pixel 4 XL phone? You’re in luck. We’ve already seen a cache of such shots, as well as a video , and now there’s more. Vietnam-based phone shop D Store Mobile has leaked twenty or so pictures of a white “test model” of the Pixel 4 XL, according to a report.
The photos don’t reveal anything really new, notes The Verge, which published the shots , but they do give us another glimpse, and The Verge’s Jacob Kastrenakes does call out a couple of interesting tidbits.
The pics suggest that “the main rear camera will be getting a slightly faster aperture, moving to f/1.73 on the Pixel 4 from f/1.8 on the Pixel 3,” he says. And they also hint that the phone “will shoot in 16:9 by default so that photos can take up the entire camera screen, despite the sensor remaining 4:3.”
Google didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
Google’s next flagship phones, the Pixel 4 and 4 XL, are expected to launch in October. They’re important devices for Google. They’ll serve as the company’s ultimate take on its mobile OS — the most popular OS in the world — and the phones must stand out, not only from Apple’s iPhone but also from other Android rivals, like Samsung’s.
