Google Pixel XL 2 has just shown up in the GFXBench database. The successor of the Pixel XL features a larger display and gets fuelled by the Snapdragon 835 SoC. The test unit has got 4GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal storage. The Google Pixel XL 2 is set to release later this year along with the Pixel 2.
Google Pixel XL 2 Specs
According to various reports, HTC is going to manufacture the Pixel XL 2. The upcoming flagship is expected to come with a metallic construction and top notch internals. A 5.7-inch Quad HD (2560 x 1440) display will sit on the front of the Pixel XL 2. The lower resolution and screen size mentioned in the benchmark listing is due to the exclusion of the navigation bar. Coincidentally, this certifies that the next generation Pixel XL will also feature on-screen buttons.

Moving inside, there is an octa-core Qualcomm chipset clocked at 2.4 GHz. Apparently, it seems none other than the Snapdragon 835, but it may turn out to be the Snapdragon 836.
Coming to the memory department, the Pixel XL 2 listed in GFXBench has 4 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage. There are chances of a grander version with 6 GB or 8 GB of RAM. The phone runs Android 7.1.1 Nougat. However, it will probably launch pre-loaded with Android O.
There is a 12 MP rear camera in the Pixel XL 2. As of now, we don’t see any hint of the presence of dual camera setup. A 8 MP selfie shooter will probably sit at the front. Needless to say, the handset will be able to shoot 4K videos.
Connectivity-wise, Google’s forthcoming smartphone would pack all the necessary options including 4G LTE, VoLTE, dual-band Wi-Fi, etc. Unfortunately, we are yet to have any info about the battery capacity of the device.
Google Pixel XL 2 Release Date (Expected)
Google will probably make the Pixel XL 2 official around October 2017. The Android O (8.0) will also be launched at the same time.
