Google's Pixel phones could be the first in the US to pack Snapdragon 821 CPUs
We're probably less than a month away from the official unveil of Google's next Android smartphones, the Pixel and Pixel XL, but we've already learned quite a bit about them.

The newest information regarding Google's Pixel phones suggests that they might be the first smartphones in the United States to pack Qualcomm's Snapdragon 821 processors.

The Snapdragon 821 chipset has already made it to market since the Asus Zenfone 3 Deluxe is now available for purchase, but the device is limited to Taiwan for the time being.

Another smartphone that could be powered by a similar Snapdragon 821 CPU, the Xiaomi Mi 5s hasn't been released yet, but we doubt it will ever be available in the United States.

According to AndroidPolice's David Ruddock, Google fans who wished that the search giant would “really get out there and market their phone” may eventually see that becoming reality next month.

“The Pixels will be the first US devices with Snapdragon 821 by a long shot,” he added. Up until now, all previous reports pointed out that both Pixel smartphones will come equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processors and 4GB of RAM.

If the new report proves to be accurate, then Nexus fans will be pleased to be offered some of the most powerful smartphones available on the market.



Other highlights of the Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones include 12-megapixel rear-cameras, as well as 5-inch 1080p and 5.5-inch Quad HD display, respectively.

Google's Pixel smartphones are expected to ship with Android 7.1 Nougat right out of the box, a superior release that should bring a few improvements over the original version released weeks ago. 

The latest hearsay suggests Google will announce the Pixel and Pixel XL on October 4 or around that date. Also, they'll be available for pre-order on the same day as well.
