It was been the case when, buying a Google phone with a “pure Android” experience meant sacrificing power and performance. The company’s brand Nexus phones weren’t stoop, essential, but they could never truly compete with the likes of Samsung and Apple flagship phones. In 2016, though, that all has been changed. With Google’s Pixel and Pixel XL release as truly flagship phones inside and out, featuring a sleek aluminum design and top-of-the-line specs.
Here’s all we can expect Google to continue the trend in 2017 when it launches the new Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, and followed by its new mobile operating system, Android O version 8.0. Now, it seems we have got our first indication that will indeed be the case.
Rumors and speculations spread around the web suggesting that Google’s next-generation Pixel 2 smartphone is codenamed “Taimen,” but the device has been referred online again yet another time. This time around, however, the source of the reference is Primate Labs. If you recognize the name, you know exactly where we’re heading with this: Geekbench 4 benchmarks test results for the Pixel 2 have been trailed on the Pimate Labs website: http://browser.primatelabs.com/v4/cpu/2809164
Once you look at the Pixel 2 prototype above shown, is responsible for these test results was running Android O (Features). The phone itself is powered by Qualcomm’s latest octa-core Snapdragon 835 chipset, just like the US version of Samsung’s Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8+. Also like the S8 and S8 Plus, the Pixel 2 appears to be a powerhouse.
The phone’s single-core score of 1804 is well shy of the iPhone 7 Plus’s record, but it’s about the inline with what we’ve witnessed from the Galaxy S8. The multi-core scrore is also rearly as impressive as Samsung’s Galaxy S8 scores, and what reminds is that the S8 is the most powerful Android phone the world has been seen and upgraded to.
These benchmark scores, however, were achieved by a Pixel 2 prototype, but nevertheless, it’s obviously quite likely that the phone’s performance will be roughly the same at launch. Now for the bad news: That launch isn’t expected until much later this year. Stay tuned for more gossips and stories regarding Google’s Pixel 2017 model arrival.
