We can say it loud and clear that the upcoming rumored Google Pixel 2 and the next One Plus phone will not have anything other than the Snapdragon 835. An "extremely reliable source" told XDA that "there will never be a Qualcomm Snapdragon 836". But according to a report in Android Police, that is not the case as the Snapdragon 836 does not exist.

According to reports, the successor to Google Pixel smartphones launched a year ago will be manufactured by HTC (standard Pixel 2) and by LG (Pixel 2 XL).

It's now being claimed that's completely false information and that there is no Snapdragon 836 processor in existence. These include OnePlus 5, Samsung Galaxy Note 8, S8 and S8 Plus, Moto Z2 Force, Nokia 8 and LG V30.

The Google Pixel 2 has been a subject of numerous rumors ever since the beginning of this year and last month it was tipped to come powered with the Snapdragon 836 processor but latest reports deny that rumor. Most of next year's flagship smartphones will mostly be powered by that chipset.

Backing up the two outlets' statements, a recent FCC filing confirmed that the Pixel 2 is going to sport Snapdragon 835. Reputable leaker Evan Blass, however, is sticking to his original claim: "Re: SD836, I haven't heard anything further since my initial tweet, and since the source has proven accurate time after time, I stand by it". The flagship smartphones are also expected to run Android Oreo, Google's latest version of the Android mobile operating system.

The Snapdragon 835 is, in itself, a strong processor which does not require any major upgrades.

The smaller Pixel 2 could come with a 4.97-inch display and sport a regular design.
