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.

Samsung's very own Galaxy S8 is currently holding the title being the greatest Android smartphone for 2017. However, with all the rumors and leaks concerning the specs and features of the Google Pixel 2 series, it might not hold it for long. According to the review of Digital Trends, Samsung Galaxy S8 managed 1762 in single core and 5723 in a multi core. On the other hand, Pixel 2 scored on Geekbench of 1804 in single core testing and 6248 in multi-core.
