Google's Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL to shoot Super Selfies, boast updated Visual Core chip
Both it and the smaller Pixel 3 are going to feature dual front cameras, and one of them will be wide-angle, according to the usual unnamed sources, this time talking to 9to5Google. The devices will be able to shoot 'Super Selfies', which will feature the now very prevalent faux bokeh for Portrait Mode.
However, the new Pixels will reportedly stand out from the competition in the quality of those shots - which is not surprising at all given the company's history regarding photography in the two past generations of its own-brand phones.
The 'first look review' published by a Russian website earlier today already hinted at some new selfie-centered features arriving in Google's camera app on the third-gen Pixels. While the pre-production unit reviewed there shows options to make face retouching "Natural" and "Soft", there's also a zoom-in ability. Even more selfie features may still be in the works before the phones launch in October.
The dual front cameras could also end up being used to provide a more secure facial recognition unlocking function, but the sources behind this particular report weren't sure whether this is set in stone. Interestingly, Google is basically experimenting with the dual selfie snapper setup this time around, and may choose to go back to a single snapper in the Pixel 4. The decision regarding that will be based on the reception of the new selfie features.
Both front facing cameras may come with 8.1 MP resolution, while the single rear snapper is a 12.2 MP unit. Speaking of which, the company is "doubling down on making a single camera powerful enough to not need a second camera", one source said. We should apparently expect "incredible" low-light photos from the main sensor.
