Google Pixel - 2 -

Since past few weeks OnePlus 5 is everywhere and when now it seems all settled, another flagship pops up. Google is gearing up for their launch of flagship devices (Google Pixel) very soon in 2017, well that leaves us with speculations of what is a name, specification, design, features & much more. Google successfully kept it secret till now.

According to a recent report from XDA-Developers, they have succeeded in getting their eye on which is enough to put hypes on fire till the launch of devices. According to the report, 2017 Pixel devices are manufactured by LG, currently, these two devices are identified with a codename “Taimen” and “Walleye”. Another catch is that as devices are manufactured by LG, there might be the comeback of their legacy “Nexus” naming convention they are using previously and ditched it last year, mostly “Taimen” may be named as another Nexus and “Walleye” will be continued with Pixel naming.

Let’s hit back to the specifications revealed, “Taimen” has a big display and “Walleye” is with a small display.


  • 4.97-inch 1080p display with FHD resolution
  • Identical design like last year’s smaller Pixel with large bezels around the display
  • 4GB RAM
  • Snapdragon 835
  • 64GB Storage with choice
  • Stereo speakers
  • No headphone jack (Sorry!!!)


  • 5.99-inch display with a 1440p OLED panel by LG
  • Smaller bezel design unlike last year’s Pixel XL with two-tone glass and metal finish on back
  • 4GB RAM
  • Snapdragon 835 at 2.45GHz
  • 128GB Storage with choice
  • Single camera with dual LED flash
  • Headphone jack? (Not yet known)

It’s clear that Google is not believing racing behind in opting higher RAM (6/8 GB) version, well why should? they have enough faith in their software (Android 8) and it should be after all these are smartphones, not the high-end gaming computers. One more thing to note that going by specifications of “Walleye”, it has power pack specifications with smaller display(4.97-inch) footprint, it’s going to be the best choice for those who want high-end performance with 5-inch FHD display, which is not often found in a current smartphone market. It’s worthy to note that it’s insider report final device specifications may subject to change.

What do you think of ditching headphone jack and other specifications? Shoot them all in the comments section below.
