Google Pixel: Are there three new smartphones this year?

Under the code names “Walleye” and “Muskie” we expect two smartphones this year to inherit the Google Pixel and Pixel XL. As it seems, we can also look forward to a third device with the project name “Taimen”.

After Google successfully last year its first smartphone has published under his own name with the real Google pixel and the pixel Google XL, it was almost a matter of course that the company from California is reloading this year.

So we expect the Google pixel 2 and also an XL offshoot.

Meanwhile, it is also known that these two handsets are known internally under the project name “Walleye” and “Muskie”, both – are names of fish – again. Google treats for some time as and after we have adjusted it, that will deliver two new smartphones us Google, romps suddenly rumors Pond, a third fish.

The called “Taimen” – a fish belonging to the salmon family and is long on average more than one meter. But there are even more than two meters long specimens been spotted weighing over 100 kilos. Why this small ichthyology? Because the leaves may also include the device.

Similarly, as the fish is in fact quite a chunk, the sources of mention Droid Life namely, that this third smartphone from the display diagonal is to be her larger than the other two models.

More information is currently not yet – except that it is the “Taimen” also should be a smartphone and not a tablet or even a 2-in-1. However, be advised that this device must be considered separately, ie separately from the other two smartphones as a separate category.

What does that mean exactly, we can not say with this vague information at hand and at this time. Will it be perhaps the Nexus series to revive?

Or is it simply the scaled-down version of the in previous rumors there was talk, just with an even larger display than the Pixel XL and for selected regions?

will be presented until the new hardware, will take some time, in which we can give some thought to what Californians hatch.

Interestingly, it does sound and I am confident that we previously – are all ready to inquire about the new handsets – perhaps for Google I / O in May. Tight Lines!
