Google Pixel 3 XL with Android Q appears on Geekbench

“The Android Q is expected to be the 10th iteration of the Android operating system that will succeed the Android 9 Pie”

Google’s 2018 flagship smartphone, the Pixel 3 XL (review), has popped up with Android Q on benchmarking site Geekbench. This is a confirmation of sorts that the Mountain View company will continue its alphabetic naming convention with the upcoming Android OS as well. Android Q – the 10th iteration of Android – likely to be launched next year. For those unaware, the Pixel 3-lineup boots the latest Android 9 Pie out of the box.

Coming back to the Geekbench listing, the hardware specs of the Pixel 3 XL looked familiar. The device was benchmarked with 4GB of RAM and 1.77GHz octa-core Qualcomm processor, which should be the Snapdragon 845 SoC. As for the score, the Pixel 3 XL with Android Q crunched the multi-score Geekbench test with 8,540 points and single-core test with 2,404. These scores are not much higher than what we saw in the leaks back in August, so a major performance upgrade should not be expected from Android Q. However, there is still much time before the software build becomes official and there could be some difference in performance between now and then.


That’s all we know so far! The features about the Android Q are vague, but what we do know is that the OS will be Treble-compliant and rolled out to all Android devices launched with Android One this year, Pixel-series phones, and most 2017 devices. We expect that the upcoming Android Q will fix the extensive list of bugs Pixel 3/ Pixel 3 XL owners are facing with the current Android platform.

Most recently, it was reported that the younger Pixel device is not letting user access camera app. The bug was so critical that even the third-party apps such as Instagram or Facebook were getting the fatal camera drive failure error.
