Everyone just could not help falling in love with this AI!
And, up to now, since its release last year, Google Pixels continue to rank no. 1 among the world’s smartphones!
It’s no wonder many people are currently holding their breath as they await the release of Google Pixel 2. Albeit, there’s a rumor that the larger model named Muskie had been canceled. Disappointment got dispelled by another news that Muskie has been replaced by Taimen, an even larger model!
Yes, it’s widely-talked about that Taimen will have a 5.99-inch display with a 1440p (2K) resolution and stereo speakers!
Although, according to gadget leakers Evan Blass (VentureBeat) and Steve Hemmerstoffer (@onleaks on Twitter), Google will also be ditching the headphone jack not just on Taimen, but on the smaller version codenamed Walleye as well.
What other surprises we may expect from Google?
LG would be manufacturing the larger model Taimen, while HTC — the original manufacturer of the Google Pixels — would take care of Walleye production.
Google’s coming up with different designs for the two new models.
Yet both models will have the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor and 4 GB of RAM, according to XDA. Both of which will guarantee adequate power for the new premium smartphones.
You can also expect excellent cameras like the original Pixels. In fact, Google Pixel 2 may even have more exciting features to offer!
You can almost hear everyone clapping.
But, what does everyone further wishes for?
Everyone hopes that this time the search giant would come up with water-resistant smartphones.
After all, based on surveys and insurance reports, liquid is the culprit in 40% of smartphone damage. People tend to forget about their phones when they take a swim or go to the toilet.
In fact, the most frequent place where people drop their smartphone is in the latter. But despite these somewhat embarrasing facts, the bottom line is smartphones must be water-friendly and to the point where we can look forward going to the beach, pool parties and water parks without fearing for our handsets.
