First Google Pixel 5 XL render is here & It has an ugly camera bump!

Like every year, the Google Pixel series is expected to get an update in October. We should be meeting two Pixel models, Pixel 5 and the 5 XL this year. And the first render of the Google Pixel 5 XL is already here, a solid eight months before the actual launch! Google has never successfully kept the Pixel model under wraps before its arrival. But getting a prototype render eight months in advance is a new record, even for the Pixel series.

The render comes from the YouTuber Jon Prosser of FrontPageTech. He obtained CAD files for the upcoming Pixel 5 XL a few days back which were used to create these new renders.

Jon says that the Pixel 5 XL has three prototype models in development. The design you see above is just one of these prototypes. The other two prototypes have a similar square-shaped camera housing as the existing Pixel 4 lineup.

The above Pixel 5 XL design is said to feature the same “soft matte glass back with a glossy camera module”. The three cameras on board (yes, the 2020 Pixel is finally getting three sensors this year) come in a camera housing that looks like an elongated semi-circle. Honestly, it’s one of the worst designs that we’ve seen lately. Jon says that the design started to grow on him slightly, but personally, I don’t see that happening to me.

However, there’s some good news. Irrespective of what design the Pixel 5 XL comes in, it looks like Google will finally add a wide-angle camera on the new model. The lack of an ultra-wide-angle sensor was a big let down last year, so it’s good to see it on the upcoming 2020 pixel.

Jon didn’t share a render of the Pixel 5 XL’s front but he says that it’s very similar to the Pixel 4 series, with a smaller forehead. Does that mean Google is getting rid of the Soli sensor? Unfortunately, we don’t know that.

So, this was our first look at the Pixel 5 XL. You can check out his video from down below.
