Google Pixel 2 Series To Launch With Snapdragon 835, Not 836

It's now less than a month when we are going to see the second iteration of the Pixel handsets launch and the hype is getting real day by day. In the latest development of leaks, it is being said that Pixel 2 won't be carrying Snapdragon 836 (as was previously rumored) and will rely on 835.

Popular leakster Evan Blass has mentioned this on Twitter and given the accuracy of his leaks in the past, this can be another leak which may stand to be true. As per Blass, Qualcomm had told Google to expect SD836 for Pixel 2 but it is now being delayed until 2018 so, it seems like the new members in the Pixel family will have to run on SD835 instead. This can be a negative for Pixel 2 since a processor exclusivity would have given the Pixel 2 devices a boost ahead of their competition.

The Pixel 2 launch is supposed to be held in the first week of October, likely to be October 5th. Google is expected to announce two Pixel 2 devices - the Pixel 2 and the Pixel 2 XL. Both the devices are rumored to ditch the headphone jack. It is believed that the second generation Pixel devices will have IP67 water and dust resistance rating, unlike the first generation devices which lacked any form of resistance. We also know that the Pixel 2 couple will include a squeezable frame like the HTC U11 probably to trigger the Google Assistant. Everything will become clear when the Pixel devices are announced. We will keep you posted.
