Google To Launch Three New Smart Phones In 2017

After Pixel and Pixel XL were launched in the market in 2016 and became a huge success, Google will be launching three Pixel phones this year. According to a post on Android Open Source Project, “the upcoming Google handsets are codenamed as Walleye, Muskie and Taimen. Walley and Muskie could be the successor of Pixel XL and Pixel respectively. On the other hand, Taimen is rumored to the brand-new tablet from Google.”

Rumours suggest that the Taimen will be a successor to the company’s Motorola Nexus 6, which was launched in November 2014 and the price of the phone will be expensive as it consists of Qualcomm's flagship processor Snapdragon 835. Muskie is 5.0 inch, Walleye is 5.5 inch and the Taimen is 6.0 inch and all the three varieties will have one common key hardware. These new phones are expected to come with improved design language, enhanced RAM, camera and battery capacity. The Walleye, Muskie and Taimen are slated to launch in October 2017.
