“The Google Coral is expected to be the upcoming Pixel series smartphone – dubbed as Pixel 4”
Amidst the rumours of Pixel 3 Lite launch, a mysterious Google device has surfaced on benchmarking site Geekbench. The device is being referred to as “Coral” and spotted running the 10th iteration of Android OS (called Android Q) and Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 855 mobile platform. While speculations are that this could be the upcoming Google Chromebook, it’s highly unlikely as the Chromebook comes pre-loaded with ChromeOS.

The scores are slightly lower compared to the lofty standards of SD 855 chipset. Notably, the Coral comes with 6GB of RAM. If it turns out to be the upcoming Pixel smartphone, Google would be making a jump from its standard 4GB of RAM to 6GB. Other details such as the device storage, camera, and battery remain unknown at the moment.
