The larger of the two handsets, Taimen (a codename for the Google Pixel 2) will deliver a 5.99-inch OLED display with 1440p resolution, according to the report. Since the successful release of the Samsung Galaxy S8, a compact smartphone with a 5.8-inch display, however, Google has been reported to have discarded its plans for a 5.5-inch Pixel 2 model, focusing instead on the smallest and the largest iterations of the upcoming flagship.

Beyond just offering a larger display, it will also sport thinner bezels than what can be now found on the Pixel XL. Internally, the phone is said to feature a Snapdragon 835 processor, 4GB of RAM, a 128GB internal storage option and a single rear-facing camera with dual LED flash. For more Pixel news, stay tuned to the XDA Portal! One addition Google is adding is stereo speakers.

Originally speculated to comprise of three devices, what has emerged off late is that the Pixel 2 range will actually have two devices after all.

What are your thoughts on the Google Pixel 2? The larger Pixel is likely an LG device, and the smaller one may still be manufactured by HTC.

Comparatively, the Pixel 2, or Walleye, will have the same 4.97-inch display with Full HD resolution as its predecessor, with the design being "almost identical" to the original Pixel.

It was only a few months ago that Google's SVP of hardware and creator of the Pixel smartphones, Rick Osterloh, told those attending a private meeting that a successor to the Pixel would arrive later in the year.

Does Google have a place in the smartphone race? One notable change is that the glass window found on the Pixel XL doesn't enclose the rear-facing fingerprint sensor on Taimen.

A similar release date was mentioned by Science World Report, citing Google's current Pixel generation as an explanation: both the Pixel and Pixel XL were announced in October last year, and it wouldn't be surprising if this year's release follows suit. There's also rumblings that Google will launch a cheaper variant with slimmed down specs in order to tempt the more budget-conscious users. However, if this rumor fits in the bag, XDA's source claims that the yet to be announced handset will no longer have a 3.5mm audio jack that will definitely irk music lovers.
