Google's latest Android-made smartphone will be powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 836, Blass said. Snapdragon 836 processor is an updated version of Snapdragon 835 which was introduced at the end of last year.
Many people who expect Galaxy Note 8 will be the first device that uses the chip. But when Samsung launched the Galaxy Note 8 a few days ago, the device is still using Snapdragon 835 and Exynos 8895 as a processor.
SVP Hardware, Google, Rick Osterloh has confirmed that the latest Pixel smartphone will be launched this year.
Although he did not say when exactly Google will launch the second generation Pixel. Many people expect Pixel 2 to be launched in October, the same month that Pixel was first released.
Currently there is not much information about the latest Pixel. Rumor says, Pixel will have a slimmer design and a better camera.
While some other rumors say that Pixel 2 will be equipped with waterproof features and frames that can be kneaded.
