Google is expected to announce later this year two new smartphones called Google Pixel and Google Pixel XL. According to the latest views on the network, both devices must be manufactured by HTC. David Ruddock, editor of Android Police, has revealed via a tweet, that at least one of the two Pixel devices from the Internet giant will be the first device with a Snapdragon 821 processor marketed in the United States.

We now know that the chip has become an exclusive for Asus ZenFone 3 Deluxe, which is now available for purchase in Taiwan with very interesting specifications. This same SoC will also be used in the next Xiaomi Mi 5S and the Mi Note 2 and in LeEco Le Pro 3. Compared with Snapdragon 820, the new Snapdragon 821 is presented as an overclocked version. In fact, both the CPU and GPU have a higher frequency compared to the currently present in the 820 processor.

According to the latest information by AnTuTu benchmark, the Nexus Sailfish (or Google Pixel) must be characterized by a 5-inch diagonal screen with Full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. The Nexus Marlin (or Google Pixel XL), however, can has a screen of 5.5 inches diagonal with a Quad HD resolution and 2560 x 1440 pixels. The rest of the hardware features, according to AnTuTu, should be more or less the same.

The two new Nexus smartphones also must have 4 GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal storage and a GPU Adreno 530. Also the photographic section should be the same with a 13-megapixel rear camera and a front camera with 8 megapixels. The two Google Pixel, finally, must be the first smartphones to include Android 7.1 Nougat pre-installed.
