Alleged Specs For Taimen & Walleye Pixel Phones Leaked

Google Pixel 2 Taimen Walleye Pixel XL review Pixel XL review camera Pixel XL camera review

Now, via a source close to XDA-Developers who has apparently spent time with an upcoming Pixel device, we're getting a clearer picture as to what to expect this fall from the search giant.

To start with the larger Taimen, the smartphone will come loaded with a 5.99-inch Quad HD display, which will feature an OLED panel provided by LG, as per a report by XDA Developers. While the design of this model is determined to be nearly identical to the smaller Pixel released previous year, Google might include stereo speakers instead of the 3.5mm headphone jack.

The Pixel device ("taimen") is said to have a 5.99-inch display with a 144 OLED panel, a 128 storage model.

The anticipated smartphone will sport a smaller bezel compared to the original Pixel XL and there will be a model with up to 128GB storage.

On the power front, Walleye will similarly offer the Snapdragon 835 processor and have 4GB of RAM. Latest news indicates that many details about the phones, including their display sizes have leaked. Muskie was to be the second device of three releases in this year's set of Pixel devices sorted by size. In its place, Google may incorporate stereo speakers by utilizing the bottom firing speaker and the earpiece. However, the Pixel and Pixel XL signified a change in direction.

The larger model, codenamed Taimen, will have a 5.97-inch display, which makes it quite a big smartphone that will probably prove to be hard to handle one-handed. Both the Pixel and Pixel XL 2 are expected to come in multiple storage variants. It could even keep similar specs to the current Pixel, drop the display to 1080p, and focus on price-competitiveness and software performance. As soon as we have new information regarding the smartphones we will let you know.

As far as the smaller Walleye (4.97-inch) is concerned, it is said to have nearly the same design language as the last year's generic 5.0-inch Pixel phone.

Both the Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2 is shown powered by the latest Snapdragon 835 chipset mated to a 4 GB RAM but fingerprint scanner placement is uncertain.

Rumor mills have been spinning yet again for the Google Pixel 2 as it is said that there will be two renders of the said phone. There's also rumblings that Google will launch a cheaper variant with slimmed down specs in order to tempt the more budget-conscious users. Past year after Apple dropped the feature from the iPhone 7, Google proudly stated that its Pixel phones had a headphone jack.
