Google Pixel XL features have already been revealed. According to reports,  upcoming device will also drop the popular name Nexus.

The Google Pixel XL 5.5-inch smartphone will be powered by a 4GB of RAM and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820. According to reports, this is the standard for 2016 line of flagships like the HTC 10 and the OnePlus 3 to make the phones more capable of running the majority of games and apps today.

Based on these features, the upcoming smartphone got a score of 1,593 via Geekbench on the single-core test, while it got 4,151 on the multi-core one.
