The Google Pixel 5 and 5 XL are likely to see the daylight sometime in October 2020.

A triple-camera setup inside a new design is spotted.

A YouTube channel by the name of Front Page Tech has shared one of the three prototype design renders for the upcoming device. Meanwhile, Best Buy can hook you up with a $300 discount sans any strings attached, bumping that up to $400 off the Pixel 3 XL's list price if you don't have a problem activating the handset upfront on Verizon or Sprint. Jon states that Pixel 5 XL has three prototype models in development. The name obviously suggests that it is an upgraded version of the readily available "low power" mode on Pixel devices.

It looks monstrous, yes, but it ultimately won't matter what Google does with the camera module as long as the Pixel 5 takes better photos than ever, according to BGR.

However, a leak has emerged in the form of a video that for the first time shows off the CAD-based 3D render of the Google 5 XL, the advanced sibling amongst the two.

There is no solid evidence yet that Google will finally budge and equip the rumored Pixel 5 series with beefier battery packs. Just like any other smartphone, we saw the same happen to the now released Galaxy S20 series and since that's out of the way officially, we're on to the next one.

The California Supreme Court concluded that Apple's workers are under the company's control while waiting for and during searches. However, a group of Apple employees may have won a victory for their own time in the district courts.

It is also said that Google will probably include an ultra-wide-angle camera on the next device, taking into account feedback from the media as well as users.

Google Pixel 4A Specs, Features: To Come In April?

Like any other smartphone manufacturer, Google generally tests multiple prototypes before finalizing a new smartphone design.

The Pixel 3a is technically a mid-range smartphone. This leak comes courtesy of Jon Prosser from Front Page Tech.

You probably don't think an terrible lot about the Pixel 3 and 3 XL these days, but with a Snapdragon 845 processor under the hood, the 2018-released stock Android powerhouses are arguably better phones than the popular mid-range Pixel 3a and 3a XL from last summer.
