The listing reveals that the Pixel phone will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G processor and not Snapdragon 800 series chipset.

Until the last Pixel, Pixel 4, the flagship Google Pixel series came bundled with flagship-level Snapdragon 800 series processors. The Pixel 4 series including the 4XL is powered by a Snapdragon 855 processor.
