Google Pixel XL 2 'Taimen', Pixel 2 'Walleye' specifications revealed

New Google Pixel 2 rumors reveal specs, interesting design tweaks for 'walleye' & 'taimen'

Google last year launched Google Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones and now there are reports that company is probably working on Pixel successor this year. Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL are two phones highly anticipated by Android fans. The phones are speculated to be named as Pixel 2, Pixel XL 2 and XL 3 and code name must be "Walleye" and "Taimen", the smallest and largest device respectively. New reports suggest that Google may have reached an agreement with LG Display for future Google Pixel panels.

Some may be wondering what happened to the "original" Pixel XL 2 or "Muskie".

Unsurprisingly, the Google Pixel 2 handsets will be powered by the flagship processor of this year, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835.

XDA is confident of its source's credibility, and features such as the Snapdragon 835 processor are a given, so we have some faith in these rumours. However, the glass-and-metal mix should change for the Pixel 2 XL, as the fingerprint sensor will no longer be found on the glass side of the phone.

Although many smartphone have dual cameras, the Pixel 2 devices will come with single-lens cameras. The majority of high-end devices now feature dual cameras, so it's hard to imagine that Google will sit this one out. Display consists of an OLED panel with a resolution of 1440p. It will have a 4.97-inch display with 1080p resolution, and the physical design will be nearly identical to last year's Pixel. It's unclear at this point whether only one version would lack the headphone jack or both. However, the smaller Pixel will still retain the chunky bezels and will also pack in a stereo speakers at the front.

Everybody loved the old Nexus phones; they weren't the best but they delivered where it counted - value for money and usability.

Coming out previous year, Google's Pixel and Pixel XL phones were the company's first stab at pulling off a proper first-party device, designed and built by the company from scratch.

What are your thoughts on the Google Pixel 2?

The current Pixel and Pixel XL are manufactured by HTC.

"Walleye" - the smaller Pixel device- will have an "almost identical" design to last year's model. The octa-core chipset will be work together with an Adreno 540 GPU and 4 GB of RAM. There is a high chance that the Google Pixel 2 will be dust and water resistant too.

These details were published by XDA-Developers, which says they came from an anonymous but reliable source, and are said to be near-finalized specifications for the upcoming hardware.
