Google Pixel XL specs and software revealed in new benchmark

by Jacob Kleinman | September 19, 2016

Google is expected to reveal its new Pixel smartphones at an event early next month, but the devices aren’t much of a secret. The upcoming handsets have been popping up online on a regular basis, and a new benchmark appears to show the premium Pixel XL in action while confirming a few key details.

The Geekbench listing reveals a “Google Pixel” device and also mentions the “marlin” codename associated with the XL model. The device sports 4GB of RAM and runs Android 7.1, which is expected to launch with the new phones. It’s equipped with an unnamed Qualcomm chip clocked at 1.59GHz, rumored to be the Snapdragon 821.

The Pixel XL is also expected to pack a 5.5-inch Quad HD display, a 12-megapixel rear camera, an 8-megapixel front-facing camera, USB-C and a 3,450mAh battery according to earlier reports. The smaller Google Pixel could offer a 5-inch 1080p display and a 2,770mAh battery. Both devices are expected to debut at an event on October 4, with pre-orders allegedly launching on the same day before an official release later that month.
