Google is expected to unveil two smartphones this year, developed together with HTC. Pixel and Pixel XL were previously known as Nexus Sailfish and Marlin, but it seems that Google has decided to rebrand the phones.
They have been showing up on benchmark sites in various forms, but mostly under the Nexus brand. It seems that only recently has the Nexus Marlin been listed on Geekbench under its latest moniker, Pixel XL.
Roland Quandt spotted the benchmark listing revealing that the Pixel XL variant runs Android 7.1 Nougat and an octa-core processor from Qualcomm clocked at 1.59GHz. The Marlin codename is also mentioned in the listing, alongside the fact that the device will come with 4GB of RAM.
If you’re interested in the numbers, know that the Pixel XL recorded 4176 points in the multi-core test and 1561 points in the single-core test.
