Qualcomm has confirmed the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL - which are expected to be announced later today - will use the Snapdragon 855 chipset rather than the 855 Plus.
To be fair there is not a lot of difference between the two chipsets - most of the improvements on the Plus relate to its gaming performance - but it does mean Google's latest cutting edge phone will not have the latest chip.
What this appears to mean is that Google does not think the Pixel 4 range is a competitor to the top-end gaming phones that use the Plus.
Qualcomm CEO Cristiano Amon tweeted the confirmation of the chipsets a day early, in a post that has since been deleted.
The Google Pixel 4 is set to launch later today (10am EDT, 7am PDT, 3pm BST) at an event in New York where it's expected we'll learn about the new Pixel 4 range as well as a variety of other products.
