Google Pixel 2 Will Not Give A New Snapdragon 836 Processor Surprise
Google is all set to release flagship smartphone Pixel 2 this fall. In the past reports have claimed that the tech giant would be the first to introduce Qualcomm's yet-to-be-announced Snapdragon 836 SoC. However, the fresh reports now refute this claim suggesting that Qualcomm is not working on any Snapdragon 836 SoC and that it doesn't exist, at least as of now.
XDA Developers cites its 'very reliable' sources to report, which claims that the Snapdragon 836 SoC doesn't exist at all. It also suggests that the company is right now not working on any such processor. Qualcomm might very well have a new processor planned for Q4 2017 and Q1 2018, but the Snapdragon 836 isn't in the work as of now.
Qualcomm has introduced an update last year to the Snapdragon 820 SoC, and the original Google Pixel smartphone had the Snapdragon 821 SoC integrated inside. However, it is not every year that Qualcomm practices this trend. Even Android Police confirms the same claim in a separate report, lending more weight on the thing that Pixel 2 will boast the Snapdragon 835 processor only.
The Google Pixel 2 smartphone is tipped to launch on October 5. The HTC-manufactured Pixel 2 is said to boast an EdgeSense style frame and sport a bezel-less 18:9 display. The upcoming Google Pixel 2 will reportedly run on Android 8.0 Oreo.
For the specifications, the Google Pixel 2 is said to come with 64GB and 128GB of built-in memory options and will support NFC, Bluetooth, and 802.11ac Wi-Fi. The Google Pixel 2 will boast 4GB of RAM and the smartphone will also have been tipped to sport an 'Always On' display mode. The Google Pixel 2 is also rumored to drop the 3.5mm headphone jack. The smartphone will compete with the top-air-flagships of this year including Galaxy Note 8, OnePlus 5 and iPhone 8.
