Not only did the Evan’s tweet discuss when we’ll see Google’s latest, but it also mentioned the silicon we may see inside of the devices. As stated, the 2nd-generation Pixel phones will feature Snapdragon 836 processors, the first Android phones to do so. And no, this isn’t the first time we’ve heard this. As more information is made available on that, we’ll keep you posted.
For context, Google announced the original Pixel and Pixel XL on October 4 of last year, so this timing seems about right.
After seeing the Galaxy Note 8, are you now more excited for the Pixels?
Google's second-generation Pixel handsets, powered by Snapdragon 836 SoC's, will be unveiled on October 5th.
