Anticipation is building for Google’s follow-up to the critically acclaimed Pixel and Pixel XL. Recently, the codenames for the search giant’s next devices were leaked. The tech scene has otherwise been relatively quiet concerning the “Muskie,” “Walleye,” and “Taimen” smartphones. However, a recent post on Geekbench gives a look into the performance of what could be Taimen.

The Geekbench scores, which appeared in developer Primate Lab’s repository earlier today, show a device labeled “Google taimen” running the upcoming Android O operating system. The device in question is listed as having a Qualcomm octa-core processor running at 1.9 GHz and 3585 MB of RAM. This is in line with rumors that Taimen (and its brothers) will have a Snapdragon 835 (an 8-core chip with a base clock of 1.9 GHz) and 4 GB of RAM.

Taimen reported a single-core score of 1804 and a multi-core score of 6248. For comparison, Samsung’s latest Galaxy S8, which also has a Snapdragon 835, typically posts around 1800 in single-core testing and 5500-6000 in multi-core testing. We’ll have to wait until Google officially announces their next devices later this year, but based on these tests, it’s a safe bet to say this device is likely Taimen, and it seems right in line with current flagship devices.

I've been a "tech-head" my entire life. After graduating college with a degree in Mathematics, I worked in finance and banking a few years before taking a job as a Systems Analyst for my local school district. I started working with Notebookcheck in October of 2016 and have enjoyed writing news articles and notebook reviews. My areas of interest include the business side of technology, retro gaming, Linux, and innovative gadgets. When I'm not hunched over an electronic device or writing code for a new database, I'm either outside with my family, playing a decade-old video game, or sitting behind a drum set.
