Google's last year's flagship offering Pixel has now been spotted with Android O on the popular benchmark website Geekbench. The listing does not reveal much except that the device is running the next major Android version which is currently in beta testing phase. It shows that Pixel with Android O managed to score 1631 and 3876 points on single and multi-core tests respectively.
There is no doubt that this Geekbench listing does not reveal anything new because Google has already confirmed that both Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones will be receiving with Android O once it becomes available for public release. While there are still some months to go before Android O becomes public, you can still try out the beta version on your Pixel if you are interested.
With Android O, you will be getting a number of new features. There is picture-in-picture mode which will allow you to keep playing videos and other such content in a small window while you keep using any other app in its full-screen mode. This window can also be moved around anywhere on the display. Other features include Notification Dots, Smart Text Selection, Autofill, and all-new emoji.
- The Google Pixel is available at Amazon Marketplace for $ 367.
- The Google Pixel XL is available at Amazon Marketplace for $ 319.
