Like yearly, the Google Pixel collection ought to obtain an replace in October. We should always meet two Pixel fashions, Pixel 5 and 5 XL this yr. And the primary rendering of the Google Pixel 5 XL is already there, eight strong months earlier than the launch itself! Google has by no means managed to maintain the Pixel mannequin secret earlier than its arrival. However getting a prototype delivered eight months upfront is a brand new document, even for the Pixel collection.
Pixel 5 prototype rendering by Jon Prosser
The rendering is from YouTuber Jon Prosser of FrontPageTech. He obtained CAD information a couple of days in the past for the following Pixel 5 XL which have been used to create these new renderings.
Jon says that the Pixel 5 XL has three prototype fashions in growth. The design you see above is simply a type of prototypes. The opposite two prototypes have a square-shaped digicam physique much like the prevailing Pixel four vary.
The Pixel 5 XL design above is alleged to have the identical "tender matte glass again with a shiny digicam module". The three cameras on board (sure, the Pixel 2020 lastly receives three sensors this yr) are delivered in a digicam housing that appears like an elongated semicircle. Actually, this is among the worst designs we’ve seen lately. Jon says the design has began to develop barely on him, however personally I don't see that taking place to me.

Nonetheless, there may be excellent news. Regardless of the design of the Pixel 5 XL, it seems to be like Google will lastly add a wide-angle digicam to the brand new mannequin. The dearth of an ultra-wide-angle sensor was an enormous deal final yr, so it's good to see it on the following 2020 pixel.
Jon didn’t share a rendering of the entrance of the Pixel 5 XL however says that it is vitally much like the Pixel four collection, with a smaller entrance. Does this imply that Google is eliminating the Soli sensor? Sadly, we have no idea.
It was due to this fact our first glimpse of the Pixel 5 XL. You possibly can watch his video from backside to backside.
