Google Pixel 3 XL shows up in benchmark: powerful CPU, decent RAM, Android P
Google's next Pixel smartphones are probably two months away, but the newest version of Android is expected to be unveiled on August 20, according to the latest rumors. Even if Google plans to launch the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL in October/November, they are still likely to be the first to ship with Android P on board.

Luckily, we've already had our fair share of leaks that gave us a look at what the Pixel 3 XL looks like. The recent listing of the phone in the Geekbench database confirms some of the specs that we were definitely expecting.

A powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, 4GB RAM, and Android P are the main highlights of the listing. The benchmark results achieved by the Pixel 3 XL aren't as impressive as one would expect, but they're decent enough for a flagship: single core test – 2400, multi-core test – 8359.


In comparison, the Galaxy Note 9 that packs the same chipset but 6GB RAM instead of just 4GB, achieved the following benchmark results: single core test – 2411, multi-core test – 8712.

We're not convinced that these artificial benchmarks can make or break a phone, but we reckon many consumers take them into consideration when they choose to buy a new flagship.
