The upcoming Google Pixel 2 will be the first phone powered by Snapdragon 836, a revised version of Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 (SoC), according to industry insiders cited by Androidheadlines.

The source did not specify whether the chip would appear on both Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL phones or one of them. While some recent reports indicate that the upcoming Google device will have more differences between Pixel and Pixel 2 XL.

This latest report is different from some of the previous rumors and leaks related to the upcoming Pixel 2 line, stating that the devices will come with Snapdragon 835.

A device called Pixel 2 XL appeared on the GFXBench mobile benchmark database site in early June, with details indicating that the device would use Snapdragon 835.

However, the source of the report also claims that Snapdragon 836 will be relatively similar to its hardware predecessor, but it will feature a higher GPU clock speed and a CPU higher than Snapdragon 835.

Snapdragon 835, the first 10nm Qualcomm SoC equipped with eight Kryo 280 cores, has a maximum frequency of 2.45GHz, and the Adreno 540 GPU. If the router offers hardware with an identical base clock, then this chip will have energy efficiency like Snapdragon 835 in everyday use , Although its performance is stronger under heavy loads.

Snapdragon 836 itself recently reported to have improved performance compared to Snapdragon 835, similar to how Snapdragon 821 was upgraded from Snapdragon 820 last year.
