The phones will run yet to be launched Android O. A sample screenshot in the FCC filing shows the phone running on Android 8.0.1, according to The Verge.
In an earlier leak, it was revealed that the phone would be the first to carry Snapdragon 836 processor which is expected to be about 10 percent faster than Snapdragon 835.The timing of the FCC filing is similar to last year’s filing for Pixel and Pixel XL. Going by the experience, the phone is expected to be launched by October this year.
