This past weekend, XDA developers reportedly got specs for the Google Pixel 2 line that’s not even out yet. The information apparently came from someone who “spent time” with one of the phones, according to Tom’s Guide.
The source claimed that there are only two Google Pixel 2 handsets set to hit shelves this year, as opposed to three.
The Taimen model is the larger of the two. The OLED display measures about 5.99-inches with 1440p resolution. It will reportedly come with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 processor and boasts up to 128GB of storage and 4GB of RAM. Other features of note: a thin bezel and two-tone finish on the back, plus a single-lens camera with a dual LED flash, according to the source.
The Walleye is the other Google Pixel handset that will reportedly come with a 4.97-inch screen. It will also feature a fresh design, according to Tom’s Guide. The device is expected to be almost identical to the small Google Pixel that was released in 2016. And Google is reportedly planning to get rid of the headphone jack in this model so stereo speakers can fit.
The device will come with a Snapdragon 835 processor and 4GB of RAM. It will also boast 64GB of storage.
There are still some mysteries when it comes to this line, including the prices and when the products themselves will hit shelves. The official names are unknown as well. The Pixel 2 is certainly a rumored option, but Google switching back to Nexus branding is not off the table.
Stay with us for updates on this line as they become available.
