Google Pixel XL 2 surfaces on GFXBench

The Pixel XL 2 was spotted on GFXBench today. 4GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, Snapdragon 835.

Google's flagship, the Pixel XL, was released about nine months ago to critical acclaim, and it looks like the pioneers of the Android OS are set to release the natural successor to that device. The Pixel XL 2 surfaced on GFXBench earlier in the day, revealing flagship-standard specifications. 

The Pixel XL will sport a 5.6" display, with an uncommon 2560x1312 resolution—the same resolution used on Andy Rubin's recently released Essential Phone. It will carry 4GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage, much like the original Pixel XL, a 12MP rear camera and a 7MP selfie shooter, with both having 4K capabilities. 

It will, of course, be powered by a Snapdragon 835. 

The Pixel XL brought highly-optimized software and nigh-perfect camera performance, and the XL 2 can be expected to even improve on that. Considering the recent influx of 6GB and 8GB devices, the XL 2's persistence on a 4GB setup is rather impressive. But then again, this is Google.
