Earlier this month, a comprehensive leak detailed a host of Android Q features such as support for system-wide dark mode, more accessibility features, and developers tools among others.
Just as a reminder, Android Q will get official at Google's I/O event in May this year, and will be available to all, starting the second half of 2019. Does that mean it's not a Pixel phone if Google is testing it so early in advance of the Android Q conference?
However, we are not sure what this new Google Coral device is all about. There's still a significant amount of time remaining for the Pixel 4 to launch, with the new lineup expected in October of this year. It bears a total of eight cores with a base frequency of 1.78GHz.
The device in the listing has acquired a single-core score of 3296 and a multi-core score of 9235. While these numbers are higher than what Google's 2018 flagship devices Pixel 3 and Pixel 3XL that run on Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor scored on the benchmarking site, they are not high enough for a device running on Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor, My Smart Price noted. In fact, we might still be waiting for a Pixel 3 Lite, if that truly exists. Some have predicted that it could be an upcoming PixelBook that Google is working on, suggesting it's a lightweight Chromebook that would launch with the Snapdragon 855. These scores are about 10-percent better than the scores Snapdragon 855 managed to achieve on Android 9 Pie-powered devices, which is always good to see. The following string is the most important one we found because it explicitly states that your face can be used to not only unlock your phone but to also authorize purchases or sign in to apps. Stay tuned for more updates.
