Google Taimen And Walleye Pixel 2 Phone Specs Reportedly Leak To The Wild
Let's start with the larger of the two, Google's Pixel XL 2. You may have seen references to this phone before under its internal codename Taimen, which is a popular freshwater fish. Citing a "source familiar with the matter" who also supposedly spent some hands-on time with one Google's new phones, XDA-Developers says the Pixel XL 2 will feature a 5.99-inch display (can we just call it 6 inches?) with a 1440p resolution and OLED panel built by
The Pixel XL 2 will also boast a smaller bezel than its predecessor, along with upgraded hardware that includes a mighty Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC clocked at 2.45GHz, 4GB of RAM, up to 128GB of onboard storage, and a single camera with dual LED flash.
Moving on to the Pixel 2, otherwise known as Walleye (another type of freshwater fish), this one will sport a 4.97-inch display (can we call this one 5 inches?) with a 1080p resolution. The design will be "almost identical" to its predecessor, including large bezels around the display.
Like the PIxel XL 2, the non-XL model will be powered by a Snapdragon 835 processor, so it should stand up well to the competition in the general purpose computing as well as gaming and graphics. It will also have 4GB of RAM, 64GB of internal storage, and stereo speakers in place of a 3.5mm audio jack.
Google has not yet announced a release date for its Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2, though as a point of reference, its first generation Pixel phones came out in October of last year.
