Google Pixel 2 Details Leak, Supersized Smartphones Will Outperform Galaxy S8
Google's Pixel smartphones were the best smartphones of 2016, according to most critics. It hasn’t been that very long since the initial release of the Google Pixel and Pixel XL. Despite that, we are already hearing rumors and seeing leaks about the 2017 model that’s expected to launch this fall.
Google Pixel 2 Codename And Specs
The codenames for the upcoming series of Google's Pixel 2 smartphones are Muskie, Walleye, and Taimen. According to Forbes, the names are just rumors through anecdotal code fragments, but today the device itself has appeared and already revealed its core specifications. In fact, the handset was picked up having been examined on universal benchmarking software Geekbench.
As of now, there is not much information about the Pixel successors. However, one thing for sure is it will run “Qualcomm @ 1.90 GHz, 1 processor 8 cores," which is the Snapdragon 835 chip. Other leaks that have been confirmed by the benchmarking is that the Google Pixel 2 will have 4GB of RAM and it was running Android O.
Despite the fact that we haven’t heard much about the upcoming Pixel smartphone, there is a possibility that it will also have a curved screen just like the Samsung Galaxy S8. On the other hand, Apple is also rumored to utilize a flexible OLED panel in its next generation iPhone. Although we can’t verify the validity of this story, Google might get an OLED license and a larger screen for its Pixel 2 lineup.
