Google Pixel 3 and Google Pixel 3 XL are the first smartphones developed by entirely Google; the phone is appeared to be tested online on Geekbench and Google Pixel 3 XL specifications are confirmed, a famous online tool for testing smartphones performance. As we know when the phone is tested online on Geekbench it is actually in the final phase of development and after that production starts.
We can expect now Google to announce the flagship Google Pixel 3 and Google Pixel 3XL quite soon, the phone carries Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 under the hood, the chip is said to have 8 cores and clock rates of up to 2.8 GHz, in terms of performance Google Pixel 3 and 3XL would be far superior to its predecessor. However, Google has not changed the 4GB RAM as it is the same as the predecessor.
There are many critics that are questioning Google for this approach, saying that Google hasn’t changed the 4GB RAM since its inception whereas other smartphone makers like Huawei and Xiaomi are continuously stacking up the RAM of their flagships.
The benchmark results show 2400 points on a single-core test of Pixel 3XL, and in multi-core tests, it goes over 8300 points. However, these numbers are slightly lower than other flagships available on the market. The code name “Crosshatch” in the Geekbench database confirms that it is Google Pixel 3XL because Google pixel 2 and 2XL had this code name.
Google Pixel 3 XL would be running on Android 9.0, and it will sport two front cameras, Google may also introduce a notch which is still a controversial feature in Google’s flagship.
Google hand-picked 1000 good employees from its previous partner HTC last year to form a highly experienced team of smartphone developers, according to the sources Pixel 3 production will be done by Taiwanese manufacturer Foxconn.
The Android ‘P’ 9.0 is expected to be released on August 20, it is after then Google may officially launch its in-house flagships but still, it’s a speculation.
