Published characteristics of the future smartphone Google Pixel

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

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. There will also be a glass window for radios to pass through on the back; however, it'll be much smaller this year and won't enclose the fingerprint sensor.

At this point, it seems that none of the upcoming Google Pixel handsets will feature a dual rear camera.

Besides, the concept of dual-lens camera setup is also gaining momentum, We see many flagships phones, sometimes even affordable ones from manufacturers such as OnePlus, Apple, Huawei, and LG equipped with a dual-lens camera, in hopes to give their devices DSLR-like capabilities.


One other reason to dislike the Pixel 2 is that it may ditch the 3.5mm headphone jack, which will be replaced by a second speaker. Both devices will be packing curved - possibly - AMOLED displays with 2K resolution.

On the power front, Walleye will similarly offer the Snapdragon 835 processor and have 4GB of RAM. The design will remain "almost identical" to last year's smaller Google Pixel. All that said, Google fans are looking forward to the Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2, both of which have been the subject of numerous leaks and rumors in recent weeks. Past year after Apple dropped the feature from the iPhone 7, Google proudly stated that its Pixel phones had a headphone jack. Of course, this is making some people wonder whether Google may be planning to resurrect the Nexus name or if this is just some leftover naming convention that has not been cleaned up yet. So, what's in store for the Pixel 2? HTC was reportedly working on the Walleye and Muskie devices before Google killed Muskie. Major smartphone companies have already released their new devices and now it is time for Google to release the newest updates on their Pixel variants. However, the Pixel and Pixel XL signified a change in direction. However, Muskie which was believed to be the Pixel XL 2 is said to have been cancelled, leaving Walleye and Taimen. The octa-core chipset will be work together with an Adreno 540 GPU and 4 GB of RAM. The US search engine giant is also in talks to invest $880 million in LG Display to secure the supply of OLED panels for the new Pixel devices.

Citing a source that's "familiar with the matter that spent time with at least one of these phones", XDA Developers says it was able to obtain near-finalized information regarding the internal specifications and features of "Taimen" and "Walleye," the two devices we expect to succeed the Pixel XL and Pixel, respectively.
