The Google Pixel and Pixel XL that came out in the October of last year changed the game when it comes to the world of smartphone technology. This year too, the company is all set to launch a new phone – the second generation Pixel devices, Google Pixel 2 and Google Pixel XL 2. For most of the year were in suspense about what this device features. However, today we know more about the gen-next Pixel devices, thanks to the GFXbench listings.
Benchmark listings from GFXBench have revealed the details of the Google Pixel XL 2 smartphone. The device will be coming out with the same 4 GB of RAM that we saw in last years’ variant. However, it would be powered by a newer processor – the Snapdragon 835, which would be clocked in at 2.35Ghz (same as what OnePlus 5 is said to come out with). An Adreno 540 GPU will complement the CPU.
The Google Pixel XL 2 is expected to come out with dual back cameras, as well as an upgraded front camera. Google Pixel was much appreciated for its camera, and with the Google Pixel 2 now coming out, Google has decided to literally double down on it.
This is a conflicting report as earlier indications had speculated the Google Pixel XL 2 to come out with a Snapdragon 836 processor. However, for now we’d believe the gfxbench listings to be more credible than internet rumors. In addition to speculations and rumors, a render of the Google Pixel 2 devices was spotted yesterday. If it is to be believed, the phone would feature a larger display with very thin bezels.
The Google Pixel 2 and Google Pixel XL 2 are expected to come out running the Android O Operating System (which will come to the current generation of Google Pixel users in August, before anyone else). Stay tuned with us for more updates on upcoming smartphones.
