Next-Gen Pixel Smartphones To Feature Snapdragon 835 SoC

We have heard a few things about Google's new Pixel smartphones, but they are still quite a mystery. Codenamed Walleye, Muskie, and Taimen, the smartphones are still in early development and will take a few more weeks or even months before they hit the shelves.

Thanks to a Google AOSP code, we have learned that all three models will feature Qualcomm's flagship chipset, the Snapdragon 835. That isn't much of a surprise, considering that the Pixel and Pixel XL already pack Snapdragon 821. However, it was believed that the Taimen is a cost-effective Pixel variant so a Snapdragon 835 chipset doesn't really make it cost-effective.
