SD855-Powered Google 'Coral' Pinned As The Pixel 4 Android Flagship

Google might bring Face ID-style logins and purchases to Android Q

Exclusive: Google is working on a Face ID-like feature for Android Q

This is a very early build of Android Q that XDA is tearing apart, and a lot of the groundwork that's been included may be gone by the time the first developer build of the OS rolls out. Google might also as spotted by XDA Developers, introduce privacy focussed features.

As this device is running the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor and also running Android Q, there is a good chance that this is an early build of this years Google Pixel 4 smartphone.

Moreover, the Google Coral gets powered by an unknown processor codenamed as "coral".

But it is also worth to note that Google Coral device was benchmarked several times in 2018. Furthermore, the existing "face unlock" feature that has existed on Android devices for many years now, the "Trusted Face" feature, is part of Google Play Services, is old, and is insecure, so we're confident that this is a new feature in Android Q. The device managed to score 3,296 points in the single-core, and 9,235 points in the multi-core test on Geekbench.

First, Qualcomm's Snapdragon 855 is designated for mobile, the 850 is designed for laptops.

While Google was criticised for giving just 4GB RAM on the Pixel 3, the Google Coral is listed to have 6GB of RAM.

91mobiles noted that although there are speculations that this could be the upcoming Google Chromebook, it's highly unlikely because the Chromebook comes pre-loaded with ChromeOS. In fact, we might still be waiting for a Pixel 3 Lite, if that truly exists. The following string is the most important one we found because it explicitly states that your face can be used to not only unlock your phone but to also authorize purchases or sign in to apps. Nonetheless, both the models are said to have IPS LCD displays (down from OLEDs on the flagship lineup) with 3.5mm audio jack in tow.
