Google Pixel 3 XL Spotted on Geekbench

Google will launch the third Pixel generation this fall, but the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are hardly well-kept secrets. We’ve seen them in leaked images and we know that the XL model will be Google’s first iPhone X clone, although we’re looking for a more prominent notch on the Pixel 3 XL and a thick bottom.

Because the Pixel phones are high-end handsets, we expect them to pack the same hardware as many other flagships from 2018, such as the Galaxy S9 and Note 9 or the OnePlus 6. Now the first benchmark leak for the Google Pixel 3 XL confirms that this is indeed the case, and the performance of the phone seems naturally pale compared to Apple’s old iPhones.

The phone will pack a Snapdragon 845 processor and 4 GB of RAM, according to the Geekbench list, and it obviously runs Android 9.0. The benchmark includes scores of 2426 and 8355 for single and multi-core tests similar to what is expected from Snapdragon 845 phones this year.

The multi-core score for the Pixel 3 XL is slightly lower than what we have seen as rivals, but this is still a pre-release device, so performance must be adjusted to the time it is launched. And as always, those numbers have faded compared to iPhone benchmarks. The Pixel 3-series scores far below Apple’s 2017 iPhone X and iPhone 8 and the iPhone line-up of 2018 will undoubtedly yield much better results than the iPhone models of last year.

The list also mentions that the “crosshatch” code name that appeared in previous Pixel 3 XL is leaking. Geekbench listings can be forged, but it’s not that we have any reason to expect the Pixel 3 XL to offer better hardware than other 2018 Android flagships.

Earlier this week we saw more photos of a real Pixel 3 XL prototype, although the phone was swept clean by Google. The company should release Android 9.0 this summer and the Pixel 3 series should be unveiled in early October.
