Reporters noted that this is somewhat less than would be expected from a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor 835, which is already installed, for example, on a smartphone OnePlus 5.
Google rebranded its Nexus line of devices past year into Pixel, launching the Google Pixel and Pixel XL made in collaboration with HTC. Concept Creator dreams of a phone that features an all-metal design and doesn’t drift away from the design of the original Pixel, but the back gets a dual-lens camera this time around. As to the Geekbench listing, it shows Taimen swimming with a Qualcomm octa-core processor (presumably a Snapdragon 835) clocked at 1.9GHz.
In the teaser concept, Pixel 2 is seen with a dual-camera on the back, suggesting that the actual device could feature two lenses on the back side that will allow the user to take advantage of in-depth camera features.
There are no further details about the device on Geekbench.
Google has made its name in the smartphone industry by selling affordable smartphones that are powered by premium hardware specs and stock Android OS.
For months we have attended a dance of leaks with the new Google Pixel 2 as protagonists.
So, what do you think this Google Pixel 2 concept? The listing also indicates 4GB of RAM and Google’s next-generation Android O operating system, which is now available for testing as a Developer Preview release. Google Assistant, the Pixel Launcher, and Daydream VR are nearly a given, since the Pixel 2 will come as a “phone by Google”.
The Google Pixel XL measures 154.7×75.7×8.5mm and weights 168 grams. That said, the Google Pixel 2 is expected to sport an IP68 rating, enabling the device to withstand being submerged in up to 1.5 meters (about 5 feet) of water for up to 30 minutes. The Pixel duo was announced only last October. Other than the scant availability of the Google Pixel and Pixel XL, these two phones are a dream come true for those who had wished for a time that Google will release a stock Android device that is able to match or beat the iPhone.
