Google Pixel 3 XL Shows up in a New Benchmark Once More – Confirms the Use of 4GB RAM and Features a QHD+ Resolution
This is the second time that the Google Pixel 3 XL has been leaked via a benchmarking application, revealing to us and the readers the internal specifications that we can expect from the upcoming flagship.
We already voiced our concerns when we stated in our previous reporting that a flagship sporting 4GB of RAM at this stage will seem like the company is more geared towards cost-saving rather than providing the customer with the best possible product from the industry.
The latest benchmark has popped up from a Chinese website and here, we get to see more details related to the Pixel 3 XL apart from just how much RAM it features.

The leaked benchmark posted by PlayFulDroid highlights the usual hardware specifications of the Pixel 3 XL that you will expect from a high-end smartphone in 2018. The device will come armed with a Snapdragon 845 and a resolution measuring at 2,960 x 1,440, which is the same resolution running on the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus. However, where we see flagship handsets getting launched touting no less than 6GB of RAM, it is rather strange that Google would be taking this direction with the Pixel 3 XL.
We understand that stock Android takes a lot of the load off the resources, but having more RAM makes everything so much better. It is possible that Google introduces a 6GB RAM version paired with additional internal memory, but at this stage, nothing is confirmed except for the fact that the Pixel 3 XL might just be limited to featuring 4GB of RAM.
The processor running in the Snapdragon 845 is not functioning at lowered clock speeds, which is a good thing, but we will have to see how the performance of the Pixel 3 XL holds up when running intensive applications for a longer period. All this and more will be unveiled to our readers in the future.
For now, do you think Google is taking a step in the right direction by potentially launching the Pixel 3 XL with 4GB RAM? Tell us down in the comments.
