Qualcomm Snapdragon 836 simply does not exist

Google all set to launch 2nd-gen Pixel phones in October

Additionally, both the Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2 will feature identical specs outside of the display size (and design), along with an always-on display, and Android 8.1. XDA-Developers and Android Police are reporting that Qualcomm never had plans to release a new flagship mobile processor this year and Snapdragon 836 simply doesn't exist.

However, these rumors have now been debunked as XDA developers have clarified that there is no such plan for a new processor. Blass said on his Twitter page Tuesday night (Sept. 5) that his source, who "has proven accurate time after time", is still saying that the smartphone would ship with the Snapdragon 836. However, the latest report has refuted these rumors. Sources close to Qualcomm have confirmed this news to them. This is similar to the versions that were introduced a year ago, but there is a small tidbit that will disappoint some fans.

The Google Pixel 2 and Pixel XL will likely be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835. Its proof lies in the numerous benchmark results that have made it online.

Therefore, it was crucial for Google to include something in its smartphones that could make it stand apart. The improvement has come to such a point that there is no actual need for a Snapdragon 836.

The report claims that Google is not working on any Snapdragon 836 processor and that it does not exist for now. It was then speculated that the larger, Pixel XL 2 might run the Snapdragon 836 but those rumors have finally been put to rest. The SD835 is a solid chipset that's already powering flagship handsets from other companies. Samsung has been making a lot of headlines lately, for planning to pack its Galaxy S9 with Qualcomm's (yet to be announced) processor.
