  • Free Google Home with Pixel XL purchase

Now, According to the latest reports, we now have a little more details about the Specifications of both the upcoming Pixel devices.In the latest report, provided by Fudzilla and its unnamed source, the Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2 will feature Snapdragon 836 SoC. The processor will be a more powerful variant of the Snapdragon 835.

The Snapdragon 836 was initially said to debut in the Galaxy Note 8 but that won't be the case. The report says that the upcoming Google Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2 would launch with the yet-to-launch Snapdragon 836 chipset on board. Coincidentally, the original Pixel series was powered by the Snapdragon 821 but wasn't the first to feature that particular revision of Qualcomm's 2016 high-end silicon that already debuted with the Asus Zenfone 3 Deluxe (ZS570KL) last September before the Pixel phones were even announced.

Google is expected to unveil the new Google Pixel 2 handsets in the fall this year.

Results of Brickyard 400; Kasey Kahne kisses bricks after big win
Impending darkness had no role in NASCAR's decision to throw the caution that ended the Brickyard 400 in the second overtime. Not throwing a yellow flag immediately for a big crash is pretty sketchy.

If that report is to be believed, we might see the upcoming chipset being featured in the Pixel devices first.

However, it's nearly the end of the month, but there is no news of Snapdragon 836 processor. There are reports claiming that the Snapdragon 836 could be clocked at 2.5GHz which is a slight increase over the 2.45GHz of Snapdragon 835. The Snapdragon 836 is going to have the same GPU and CPU combination as the Snapdragon 835 but they will have higher clock speeds and will thus be able to deliver slightly better performance.
