This alleged benchmark test for Google’s Taimen, a new Pixel, indicates a Snapdragon 835 is on-board

It’s pretty obvious that Google plans on using Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 for its 2017 phones. Most flagships released from here on out will have it. But, if you needed unofficial confirmation, we have that for you. Results from a benchmark test for Taimen, one member from the upcoming trio, leaked online. The results tell us exactly what processor is present, how fast the component can operate, and which version of Android is running.

Going by what we see here, the Taimen will have a Snapdragon 835 clocked at 1.9GHz and paired with 4GB of RAM. Android O, which isn’t even widely available yet, is live on this device as well.

Google already confirmed to us that, yes, a new Pixel would be released this year. So it’s very likely the results from this benchmark test are indeed from one of the three unannounced devices.

We won’t know anything certain for a little less than six months; however, today’s leak could be a sign of more inside information being exposed a lot sooner than expected. Usually it’s the middle of summer when Google hardware-related news breaks prior to an official release in the fall. Maybe the next few months will be all about Google.
