Google’s upcoming flagship smartphone, the Pixel 9 Pro XL, has been spotted on the Geekbench benchmark database, revealing key specifications about the device. According to the listing, the Pixel 9 Pro XL will be powered by Google’s next-generation Tensor G4 chipset and will feature a massive 16GB of RAM.

The Geekbench listing, spotted by MySmartPrice, shows that the Pixel 9 Pro XL scored 1378 points in the single-core test and 3732 points in the multi-core test, running on Android 14. The Tensor G4 chipset is an octa-core processor with a prime core clocked at 3.1GHz, three performance cores at 2.6GHz, and four efficiency cores at 1.95GHz. The listing also reveals that the device will feature a Mali G715 GPU.

Compared to its predecessor, the Tensor G3 found in the Pixel 8 Pro, the Tensor G4 is expected to deliver around 10% better performance in both single-core and multi-core tests. However, despite the performance improvements, the Tensor G4 is still likely to lag behind the competition from Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset.

In addition to the Pixel 9 Pro XL, the Geekbench database has also listed the regular Pixel 9 model. This variant is expected to feature 8GB of RAM and the same Tensor G4 chipset as its larger sibling.

Google is expected to unveil the Pixel 9 series, which will reportedly consist of three models – the Pixel 9, Pixel 9 Pro, and Pixel 9 Pro XL – sometime in October this year. The Pixel 9 Pro XL, with its 16GB of RAM and the new Tensor G4 chip, is shaping up to be Google’s most powerful and capable smartphone yet, although it remains to be seen how it will perform against the competition in real-world usage scenarios.
