Multiple users of Google Pixel 3 smartphone have reported some weird glitches. Some devices are randomly making clicking noises as users move them. The others record extremely shaky video even when the phone is placed on a stable surface.
Google used this crazy 5-phone case to tweak Portrait Mode on the Pixel 3
When the Google Pixel 2 came out it was extremely impressive. Despite only having the single rear camera, it beat out everything else on DxOMark and held the position for quite a while. When the Pixel 3 was announced, it also had only the single rear camera. And despite one or two issues with the phone overall, Google made some great improvements with it.
Google has published a blog post on how they taught the Pixel 3 to predict depth for its Portrait Mode. Given that it only has a single camera, and not the dual cameras of other brands, it seems like it wouldn’t be possible, but the techniques used are pretty interesting. And involve a case that holds five separate cameras.
Google’s Night Sight feature lets you shoot in the dark without a tripod or flash
Google Pixel 3 may only have one rear camera, but it relies heavily on Google’s promising AI to deliver high-quality images. The latest feature Google launched for all three generations of Pixel lets you shoot clean and bright images in near darkness – even when you can barely see anything with your own eyes. It works on both front and rear cameras, and you don’t even need a tripod or a flash.
The Google Pixel 3 XL isn’t saving your photos, but there’s a fix on the way
According to reports on Reddit and Google’s support forums, some users of the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL have come forward to say that it’s not saving all of their photos. And it appears that it also affects the original Pixel, Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL as well. Several members of staff at The Verge have also confirmed this issue with their own phones.
Leaked photos of “stolen” Google Pixel 3 XL show only a single 12.2MP rear camera
While Google is one of the biggest software tech giants out there, their adventures with hardware have only been going for a relatively short amount of time. Quickly, though, they’ve established themselves as a pretty serious player in the smartphone market. Although it seems they may want to become more serious about security, too.
9to5Google is reporting that a “large number of possibly stolen Pixel 3 XL” prototype phones have been put up for sale by an alleged Ukranian black market dealer. This has led to a series of leaks about the phone which, according to 9to5Google, the dealer says is basically the same as the final Pixel 3 XL will appear.
