Google Pixel 2 Tipped to Be First Smartphone With Snapdragon 836 SoC

There has been no ends to the speculations involving Google’s next set of Pixel handsets that includes the Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2.


As far as the latest report goes, it has been said that this year’s flagships will come with a nearly bezel-less design much like the LG G6, accompanied by features including an Always On display mode, and “squeezable” frames similar to the HTC U11 device.

With that being said, one new report has revealed that Google’s alleged Pixel handsets will be the first device to roll out with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 836 SoCs.

Going by preliminary leaks, Google’s upcoming Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2 have been suggested to look quite different in regards to design when compared to their predecessors.

According to one report, the bezel-less design is Google’s way of challenging the LG G6, Samsung’s Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+, and Apple’s upcoming iPhone 8 which was also previously rumored to go bezel-less.

Though previous reports have revealed a Snapdragon 835 SoC for the Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2, Android Headlines claims a newer Snapdragon 836 SoCs will be offered on Google’s flagship, which will automatically give them a bit of an edge over competitors.

One report claims that the Snapdragon 836 SoC will be based on 10nm fabrication process tagged with eight Kryo 280 cores, each clocked at a maximum frequency of 2.45GHz, whilst sporting an Adreno 540 GPU.


We can all agree that this could mean that the new processor will be as energy efficient, but a bit stronger on performance when compared to the Snapdragon 835.
