In the speculation of Pixel 3 Lite and Pixel 3 XL Lite, a Google mysterious new device has been spotted on benchmarking site GeekBench. The tag that device carry is Google Coral. It is claimed to be one of the flagship models that the company might release this year. The listing shows the phone to be running Android Q which is yet to even enter a beta testing phase or for that matter, get announced.
In terms of benchmarking performance, Google mysterious new device scores 3296 in the single-core score and 9235 in the multi-core score. While these numbers are higher than what Google’s 2018 flagship devices Pixel 3 and Pixel 3XL that run on Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor scored on the benchmarking site, they are not high enough for a device running on Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor, My Smart Price noted. For reference, Pixel 3 and Pixel 3XL scored 2366 and 8195, and 2400 and 8379 in the respective categories.
One possible explanation for the low benchmarking scores could be that the device has been tested on the early version of Android Q. While we have heard a lot about the features that are likely to make it to Android Q in the coming days- system-wide dark mode, better privacy settings, and upgrades to split-screen feature to name a few, it still in the early stages of development. The OS right now is unstable and full of bugs, which is what could have led to the low scores.
