Google thinks a second lens is ‘unnecessary’ for the Pixel 3’s main camera
Google earlier this week unveiled the Pixel 3 phones, confirming practically all the leaks we've seen over the past few months. Those leaks also revealed that the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL would feature a single camera on the back and two on the front, and exposed Google’s new artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) camera tricks before Google’s announcement.
We wondered why Google wouldn’t add a second lens to the main camera well before the event, especially considering that the main Pixel rivals feature dual- and triple-lens cameras — in fact, Samsung just unveiled a phone with four cameras. It turns out that Google thinks a second lens is “unnecessary” at this time.
