Google is already working on the successors of the Google Pixel and the Pixel XL. The company had no hesitation in confirming recently that this year we would see new mobile phones with the Google label, and now it has been a leak that has brought to light that there will be two, but up to three new terminals by the big G. Two will be the successors of the Pixel, but the third will be a surprise.
On the one hand, it has been known that these new Google Pixel 2 and Google Pixel XL (2017) will be powered by a processor Snapdragon 835, which can now continue to be presumed to be the latest to leave the Qualcomm production line. The reason for this choice is simple: since the presentation of the new Google Pixel should take place later this year, the Snapdragon 835 is simply the most powerful processor Google can get right now for their phones.
In addition to the second generation of the Google Pixel, the information that has brought to light the German website WinFuture, also speaks of a third and mysterious Google device that is now circulating benchmarks testing under the name of Taimen. This third terminal would not be a successor to the Pixel, but rather would be a device of large dimensions that would reach at least six inches of screen. They say that it could be a successor to the Motorola Nexus 6, and even talk that we are actually before a new version of the Pixel C.
As far as we know, the processor that will power these three devices (mentioning a model MSM8998 processor, which is nothing other than the official numbering of the Snapdragon 835) will reach a clock speed of 2.45 GHz and will be backed by a Adreno 540 graphics processor. Last year’s Google Pixel, we recall, were feeding on a Snapdragon 821 accompanied by an Adreno 530.
Expectations with Google Pixel 2 in 2017 are high. Samsung and LG, with their respective Galaxy S8 and LG G6, have left the bar very high for manufacturers wanting to compete in the high-end Android, something that precisely sucks Google with the line of mobile Pixel. It is said that the Pixel 2 will have a curved screen at the sides, but it remains to be seen if it will also be a screen that occupy the entire front of the mobile – as in the S8 – or if it will maintain the frames that incorporated the Pixel of last year.
