Android Q might not see the light of the day anytime soon, that too before the next I/O developer conference which will be held in May. Before such a formal announcement of this new Android iteration has been made, a Google device with the codename “Coral” has been spotted on the Geekbench website. The new device appears to be the successor of the existing Pixel 3 (which is priced at Rs 57,359) models and has been listed with a Qualcomm SoC which is the successor of the Snapdragon 855, in addition to the 6GB of RAM. An explicit mention of the Android Q – which is the next version of Android Pie was also spotted.

The listing on the Geekbench website, which was spotted by PhoneArena suggested that the Google Coral device would run on Android Q and the highlighted section was the speculated phone featuring a Qualcomm SoC. This might be one of the top-of-the-line, Snapdragon 855 SoC that will have eight cores and will have a base frequency of 1.78GHz.

The device has been spotted sporting a 6GB of RAM. But Google was criticized since it offered merely 4GB RAM on their existing Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL (which is priced at Rs 69,825) handsets, whereas the competition has brought in 6GB and 8GB RAM options as well. A RAM that would have a capacity of 6GB would be much needed for the successor of the Pixel 3 family.

The Geekbench listing also showed the mysterious Google device which had received a single-core score of 3,296 and a multi-core score of 9,235. Indeed, the benchmark results had been published on January 24. This clearly indicated that they were way too fresh to be judged using the authenticity of the hardware.

The listed hardware might be a part of the 2019 Pixel lineup which would run on the Android Q out-of-the-box – when the history of Pixel devices is considered. The new Android version might come with new notification gestures and might also have a list of privacy controls. A couple of recent reports suggested that it would also have a system-wide dark mode as well as a dedicated desktop mode.
