Google Pixel 5 XL case leaked, reveals rear mounted fingerprint scanner


The Google Pixel 5 XL has just surfaced online, with its leaked cases offerings us a look at its design. The leak was shared by Slashleaks, which revealed the case’s renders alongside the smartphone as well.


Looking at the images shared, the Google Pixel 5 XL still features a rear mounted finger print scanner. This is evident due to a single circular cut out at the back of the case, with its position similar to its previous generations like the Pixel 3 XL. Furthermore, the Pixel 5 XL still seems to house a 3.5mm headphone jack which is quite rare in the premium segments now and didn’t make an appearance on the Pixel 4 XL, which also dropped the fingerprint scanner completely in favor of 3D facial recognition technology.


The case depicted was a clear back cover that also had a square cut out similar to the Pixel 4 series and with a dual camera setup. Unfortunately, we still don’t have much to go on at the moment. Previous reports had pointed at the latest Google Pixel 5 series missing the flagship Snapdragon 865 chips in favor of the Snapdragon 765G due to rising costs. Additionally, its launch cycle, which is generally around October, might also have been delayed due to the ongoing pandemic. But again, it is still too soon to tell, so stay tuned.
