There will not be a Qualcomm Snapdragon 836

No Qualcomm Snapdragon 836 for Pixel 2 or anyone else Google Pixel 2: What We Know So Far
Terence Owen | 06 September, 2017, 14:25

One of the recent leaks had revealed that the upcoming Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 would be powered by the unannounced Snapdragon 836 that is said to be an improved version of Snapdragon 835 chipset.

It is expected that the new Google Pixel 2 smartphones would be powered by a slightly more powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon processor which would be the 836. Like the Snapdragon 821 from previous year, the Snapdragon 836 is expected to be a minor update over its predecessor. However, fresh information shared by XDA Developers suggests that Qualcomm Snapdragon 836 does not exist.

Moreover, the Google Pixel 2, which had been spotted in FCC filings in the past was already seen running the MSM8998, which is the Snapdragon 835. Notorious leaker Evan Blass said otherwise claiming that both phones would be powered by the SD836 and now stands by his previous statements.

Republican strategy on debt ceiling takes shape
Already, some fiscal hawks are pledging opposition, saying a debt hike should be tied to spending reforms, not hurricane relief. But it's still unclear how Congress intends to pay for any tax cuts , or at least spare the deficit from taking a massive hit.

There are various reasons why there was a faint belief that there will be a Snapdragon 836. Instead, Google Pixel 2 may end up using the same processor as found in top-tier 2017 Android smartphone, which is, Snapdragon 835.

So what will the Google Pixel 2 run on?

It was also reported that the devices will come with a squeezable frame just like the HTC U11 and that Google might choose to leave out the headphone jack this time around. The devices have been codenamed as Walleye and Taimen and could launch in late September or October. No big deal. Considering what a great performer the Snapdragon 835 has proven itself to be and how fast the first Pixels remain to this day, this news really shouldn't disappoint. The Pixel 2 should be sporting a 5inch display screen while the XL model will sport a 6inch displays screen.
