Google Pixel 2: More powerful than the Galaxy S8 according to GeekBench


One of the three Google Pixel 2017 smartphones codenamed Taimen has made it to the popular benchmarking software Geekbench.

The specifications listed in the concept state that the Pixel 2 will feature a 5.6-inch QHD resolution with an AMOLED panel that's protected by Gorilla Glass 5. A post from today coming from Treehugger Robot mentions all three phones that look to be part of a test fix for known issues that were present on the Pixel and Pixel XL, which could be pointing out that all three phones were being used to test the fix for the Pixel and Pixel XL before actually pushing the fix for those devices.

For now, take a gander at this one and let us know your thoughts down in the comments.

Google's Pixel smartphones were the best smartphones of 2016, according to most critics. Some reports suggest that the Taimen Pixel smartphone might be a tablet hybrid like the Google Pixel C. Nonetheless, it might not be the case since the tech giant uses NVIDIA Tegra chips for its tablet products, Forbes reported.
