We’ve been hearing a lot about Google’s upcoming budget Pixel phones, leaks around Google Pixel 4 have started cropping up. A Geekbench listing showed up recently suggesting that a Pixel 4 smartphone codenamed Sargo to have been listed on the benchmark site.
When the codename Sargo was first spotted in the month of November thanks to an ARCore APK teardown, it was considered to represent the budget Pixel devices. However, the current leaked benchmark suggests that the code name ‘Sargo’ pertains to Google Pixel 4.
This leak also reveals that the device in question would have 2GB of RAM and may run on Android 10 or Android Q OS. In terms of processor, it only lists an Octa-core processor with a base frequency of 1.80 GHz, without revealing any more details.
The single core benchmark score of 744 and the multi-core benchmark score of 3201 also do not point towards the presence of any flagship SoC and hints towards the presence of a low-end Pixel device. While this could be one of the Pixel Lite devices which are rumored to be launched around April or May. Another possibility could be that this could be a prototype device which Google may not launch at all.
Previous rumors around Google Pixel 4 suggest that the phone may have an all display design and maybe a first dual sim smartphone from Google. While the Pixel 3 Lite and 3 XL lite are stripped down version of the flagships Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL respectively.
