I'd Love A Cheaper, Nexus 5-Style Pixel Phone In 2017

I'd Love A Cheaper, Nexus 5-Style Pixel Phone In 2017

Luckily for us, Android hub XDA Developers has published a new blog post that details a number of specifications about both Walleye and Taimen. Large bezels surrounding the display, 3.5 mm headphone jacks and stereo speakers will be used.

The Google Pixel XL 2 or the Taimen on the other hand is said to feature a 5.99-inch OLED display with 1440 pixel resolution. This should have largely the same design as the smaller model but top out at 128GB storage and feature a single rear camera. It is expected to be powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 chipset with a generous 4GB of RAM. If accurate, the descriptions of the devices also reveal some significant differences brought about by Google having two different manufacturers for this year's devices. But not content with having competition anywhere, Google outdid each and every example so far with its latest campaign, which asks people to submit their photos on the off chance they might get added to Chromecast's Backdrop pool of images. Unlike its larger sibling, however, the design of the smaller Pixel 2 device would be largely identical to last year's versions. Needless to say, the recent leaks provide what could only be the most accurate description of the Google Pixel 2 yet. This bit about LG supplying the panels is important because it could be related to a report from a couple of months ago that stated Google was able to secure flexible OLED screens from the firm. Both the Pixel and Pixel XL 2 are expected to come in multiple storage variants.

Since its release in 2016, the Google Pixel phone lineup has grown to be regarded by most tech critics as one of the best smartphones in the market.

Biggest Banks Clear Their First Hurdle in Fed's Stress Tests
The results of the central bank's so-called stress tests showed 34 major lenders were on solid capital footing, it said. With the Dodd-Frank results in hand, now banks have the option of revising their capital plans before CCAR is released.

Those include a 4.97-inch full HD display for the Walleye that no doubt will be the successor to the base Pixel handset. This means that we won't have edge-to-edge display this year in the Pixel line-up.

As yet there are no details on exactly when these two new Google Pixel smartphones will launch, as soon as we get some more information, we will let you guys know. We've already heard about how Google was once considering three different sizes for the devices, with the middle-sized model, codenamed "Muskie", getting canned. Rumors have it that it will, in order for Google to compete with other major smartphone making companies such as Samsung and Apple. Unlike last year's model, however, the Pixel 2 flagships would not feature its fingerprint scanner on the glass part of the rear panel.
