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

New reports are now suggesting that its much talked about follow-up - the Google Pixel 2 - is bound to be out this year including some of its specs. An unnamed source told XDA Developers over the weekend that the Taimen aka Google Pixel XL 2 would feature a 5.99-inch OLED display with 1440p resolution. It will look very similar to the first Pixel but do away with the 3.5mm headphone port leaving only stereo speakers. Internally, the phone is said to feature a Snapdragon 835 processor, 4GB of RAM, a 128GB internal storage option and a single rear-facing camera with dual LED flash.

With each passing day, we are moving closer and closer to the official release of Google's highly anticipated Pixel 2 and Pixel 2XL. At the time, it was not known whether the units would be supplied to Apple or Google.

Overall the new Pixel 2 devices are shaping up to be mostly consistent with current flagship devices in the market this year from a hardware standpoint. The smaller Pixel is codenamed "walleye" while the larger one is "taimen".

Indian PM Modi visits Portugal on trip to meet with Trump
The briefing was the first substantive elaboration by the Trump administration of its India policy and the way forward. Unlike the president, however, Modi enjoys widespread popularity at home, polls show.

The next Google Pixel smartphones are largely shrouded in mystery, but the fog is clearing just a little each day.

For the smaller "walleye", surprisingly, the device will remain almost identical in looks to the current Pixel and will arrive with a 4.97-inch 1080p display.

The Pixel and Pixel XL from previous year were hugely successful releases-amongst their intended audiences, at least-as Google finally took the step forward with a brand line that was meant to compete with flagships from the competition. 64GB of storage will also be offered, while it's also said Google will drop the headphone jack for their new phones. However, this might be something that'll be addressed in the future, and we have no way of knowing whether it means anything beyond a place-holder or left-over name that'll be changed as development progresses. Otherwise, it's mostly a spec upgrade, with a Snapdragon 835 processor and 4GB of RAM on board.

She claims she was moving forward with the interview to highlight Jones' falsehoods in the way "journalists are supposed to do". Then you would have missed Keith Morrison's weird travelogue of New Zealand. "I've watched the footage", he said.

The XDA report stated that the data on the two Pixel 2 devices was provided by a trusted source, which has provided accurate leaks on other devices in the past. It will have a 4.97-inch display with 1080p resolution, and the physical design will be nearly identical to last year's Pixel.

Not to say it won't be a great handset and will be the VR king but I want more. One notable change is that the glass window found on the Pixel XL doesn't enclose the rear-facing fingerprint sensor on Taimen.
