Google Pixel 2 XL vs Samsung Galaxy S8 – It’s All About Hardware Power!

Google used to team up with different tech companies such as LG and Huawei in order to create high-end smartphones together but that came to an end when Google decided that it wants to compete with the likes of Samsung and Apple. The Android parent knew that it will never become one of the biggest names in the smartphone world if it doesn’t start making a name for itself and this is why Google started producing the Pixel lineup.

According to, Google is adding the finishing touches to Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL right now. The aforementioned smartphones are going to be launched during the upcoming future and they will pose a direct threat to Samsung’s highly popular Galaxy S8. However, people can’t stop from wondering if Pixel 2 XL really has the necessary hardware components to compete with Galaxy S8 but we will find out the truth right now.

Hardware Specs

Samsung is known throughout the world for always going overboard when it comes to hardware power and this is why Galaxy S8 is equipped with Qualcomm’s latest octa-core Snapdragon 835 processor. Samsung obviously didn’t stop there and paired Galaxy S8’s processor with 4GB of RAM and an Adreno 540 graphics processing unit. We should also mention that there’s a special edition of Galaxy S8 that’s fueled by Samsung’s own octa-core Exynos 8855-Emea processor and Mali-G71 MP20-Emea graphics processing unit.

The Android parent has been doing everything in its power to keep Pixel 2 XL’s specs under warps but this hasn’t stop leaks and rumors from coming out. Everyone in the tech community strongly believes that Pixel 2 XL will also be powered by Qualcomm’s octa-core Snapdragon 835 chipset that’s been clocked at 2.45GHz. In addition, the chipset will be coupled with the same Adreno 540 graphics processing unit and 4GB of RAM.


As everyone can clearly see, these two high-end smartphones look basically the same on paper. At least when it comes to hardware power. Although, everything we know about Pixel 2 XL is based on rumors and they might prove to be false but that’s highly unlikely.
