Purported camera details leaked for HTC Marlin (Google Pixel XL)

Purported camera details leaked for HTC Marlin (Google Pixel XL)
A short while, ago it emerged that Google's HTC-made smartphone duo codenamed Sailfish and Marlin could soon launch as the Google Pixel and Pixel XL respectively. The naming scheme, if true, will mark a departure from the traditional Nexus branding, which looks set to be retired. With a month to go until the purported October 4th unveiling, the rumor mill should see plenty of action, and kicking things off appropriately, renowned leakster LlabTooFeR has shared some info regarding the Pixel XL's camera.

According to his recent tweet, the Google Pixel XL will roll with Sony's IMX378 sensor for the rear-facing shooter, while the selfie camera will comprise Sony's IMX179. This in alignment with leaked specs, which have suggested Marlin could rock a 12 or 13-megapixel snapper on the back and an 8-megapixel front-facing effort. Though LlabTooFer doesn't mention anything about the smaller handset for now, previous information leads us to believe that both Sailfish and Marlin will employ the same cameras.
