We know that every year Google releases new Pixel smartphones. This launch usually takes place in the later part of the year, but it seems that Google might have something early in the works. According to a recent benchmark sighting, a device called “Coral” was spotted where it looks to be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset and runs on Android Q.

It is unclear if this device will be one of the Pixel phones. This is because Google usually gives its Pixel phones codenames based on fish, and while “Coral” is aquatic themed, there is a good chance it might not be a Pixel handset. Instead some are speculating that this could be a Chromebook or tablet of sorts that is powered by Qualcomm’s chipset.

This wouldn’t be the first Snapdragon-powered laptop we’ve seen, so we wouldn’t be surprised if this was some kind of Chromebook. However the fact that it runs on Android Q does raise some eyebrows since Chromebooks would use Chrome OS. The fact that it runs on Android Q also seems to hint that the operating system could be getting close to being released as a developer preview, which is in line with what the company has done in previous years.

We should point out that benchmarks can be faked so it’s probably best to take this with a grain of salt for now until we can get more information, if there is any to be had.
