Google Store offers free case with a Pixel XL purchase

Posted May 19, 2017

Google will surely use the event to introduce the upcoming version of the Android OS as well as the Google Pixel 2.

Google didn't confirm the exact name of the phone. According to the review of Digital Trends, Samsung Galaxy S8 managed 1762 in single core and 5723 in a multi core.

As per the Geekbech listing, Google Pixel 2 XXl aka Taimen will feature Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon 835 processor running at 1.9GHz, which is also used in the USA edition of Samsung Galaxy S8, and will offer 4GB of RAM.

The Google Pixel 2 has been tested on GeekBench, a tool capable of quantifying the pure power of a smartphone.

Many fans and smartphone lovers are anticipating Google to launch the up and coming Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL.

Having all three devices mentioned alongside the Pixel and Pixel XL further solidifies that these three new devices are the next upcoming Pixel devices from Google for 2017, all three devices having first been mentioned as the second-gen Pixel phones as of earlier this year. However, one thing for sure is it will run "Qualcomm @ 1.90 GHz, 1 processor 8 cores", which is the Snapdragon 835 chip. The device is also expected to offer waterproofing capabilities. Since the Pixel 2 will be running Android O right off the bat, we can expect numerous RAM-related optimizations, so it is highly unlikely that the phone will require this much memory. The new smartphone of the search engine should hit a big hit. "Walleye" is what the Google Pixel 2 is known as internally. They are calling it on a code name "Muskie" or "Walleye". However, Primate Labs' Geekbench 4 benchmark comes about for Google's Pixel 2 have been spied upon. The Taimen returned scores of 1804 on a single core and 6284 in multi-core mode.

Still, the single-core performance is rather poor given the Galaxy S8's performance, and it's not immediately clear why Google can't get more out of the processor, if the tested device is indeed the real deal. There is a strong chance the Google will still improve on these numbers as the device gets nearer to its release date.

As for the price, some reports suggest that the base model can be had for around $699.

It was said that Google Pixel was never a straight match for both Samsung and Apple leaders.
