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

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

We're confident in the validity of the details presented below, given the source's track record and since these are seeming -finalized hardware specifications and features, it's unlikely that they'll subject to change.

Starting off from the front, we expect the XL to size up from 5.5-inch to 6.2-inch, in order to compete with the likes of S8 Plus and the forthcoming Galaxy Note 8. But now we're getting the first solid leaks on the specs for the "Walleye" and "Taimen" models, or what will become the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, respectively.

The next device is the replacement for the Google Pixel, this handset is codenamed "Walleye" and it comes with a 4.97 inch display with a Full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels.

It is said to come packed with 128GB storage, 4GB RAM, single primary camera on the back with dual-tone LED flash and the Snapdragon 835 octa-core, Qualcomm's most powerful processor yet. Now, it looks likes designs, storage capacities, and even manufacturers could also play roles.

Over the weekend, XDA Developers obtained spec information on the upcoming Google Pixel 2 line.

Sensex slips more than 150 points; Nifty below 9600-mark
The 30-share pack, which opened at 31,352 against the previous close of 31,290, witnessed a 255-point swing in intraday trade. Nifty also closed in on 9,700 in Thursday's afternoon trade after which the erosion started which continued till Friday.

The other Google Pixel 2 smartphone coming this year is codenamed as the Walleye. However, if this rumor fits in the bag, XDA's source claims that the yet to be announced handset will no longer have a 3.5mm audio jack that will definitely irk music lovers.

Outside of that, your guess is as good as ours. Qualcomm is said to launch Snapdragon 836, an improved version of SD835, later this year. Going by fresh leaks, upcoming Pixel devices will flaunt thinner bezels compared to last year's models, but won't be entirely free of bezels.

Google's anticipated Pixel 2 smartphone could be released sometime in October 2017, according to a report from Android Headlines. This would have been the successor to the Pixel XL smartphone. Google didn't do that with Android 7.0 Nougat past year, and that caused quite a stir within the Android community. The Taimen model will also be packing the Snapdragon 835 processor and 4GB of RAM. He is also using a Verizon-branded Motorola Moto Z Play Droid supplied by his job.

The leak says that the Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2 have different names used to refer to their fingerprint scanners in their preproduction software, where the former has "Pixel Imprint", while the latter has "Nexus Imprint". We don't know whether this is indicative of a Nexus return, though LG has produced several Nexus devices in the past, and these devices don't seem to be quite as similar as the Pixel and Pixel XL did.
