The report suggests that both the Pixel 3 XL and the smaller Pixel 3 will features the front dual camera setup. However, with the big notch of the Pixel 3 XL, the cameras are likely to be more noticeable on the phone.

Apparently, the so-called ‘super selfies’ will comes with some faux bokeh improvements in the Portrait Mode, with new ‘Natural’ and ‘Soft’ mode for face retouching feature. One of the lenses on the front is said to be a wide-angle lens.
