Popular Google Geekbench benchmarks have recently seen Google Pixel 3 XL and Xiaomi Mi 8 SE with Android Q on board, and now more Google devices are running on a previously unreleased platform called Google Coral, which is almost certainly coded as yet unreleased equipment. The mysterious device is also speculated to be Pixel 4, an early door, or a glimpse into the changing face of Chromebook.
The device codenamed as Google Coral was benchmarked yesterday which is powered by Android Q with a Snapdragon 855 chipset and 6GB of RAM. In addition to Android Q, Google Coral is based on the Geekbench database with the latest 7nm eight-core chip with 3,296 single-core and 9,235 multi-core respectively.
The device is also speculated to be an upcoming Chromebook model that could arrive alongside the next iteration of the Pixel smartphones. As for the results, the 3296 single-core scores and 9235 multi-core score gives the device a significant edge over the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, which tend to score around 2300-2400 and 8300-8400 in the respective categories.

Meanwhile, Google tends to use Intel chips for its Chromebooks. A Snapdragon 855-based Chromebook now seems to be an odd proposal. However, Qualcomm has dedicated chips for laptop-style devices such as the Snapdragon 8CX announced alongside the Snapdragon 855.
The bigger assumption is that Google Coral might be a forthcoming Chromebook. However, there is no confirmation from the authority regarding this.
