Google's new Pixel 2 smartphone to be much larger in size
The code names for the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL are being developed under the code names 'muskie' and 'walleye'.
Google's next Pixel smartphones are likely to get larger. The Pixel 2 smartphones are expected to much larger in comparison to the 5.1 inch Pixel and 5.5 inch Pixel XL.
According to the code names given by Google which are based on the types of fishes, the dimensions of the next smartphone from Google could be much larger. While the 5.1 inch Pixel had the code name of Sailfish and 5.5 inch XL was Marlin.
The code names for the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL are being developed under the code names 'muskie' and 'walleye'. There will also be a third Pixel smartphone which is under development and goes by the code name 'taimen', according to a Forbes report.
Among fish, the Muskie is much larger than the Sailfish and the Marlin. While the Walleye which is expected to be the code name for Pixel 2 XL smartphone is much larger. However, the Tiemen are a massive variety of fish and can weigh over 100kg. This could mean the third Pixel smartphone could be extremely large.
This smartphone could be over 6.2 inches or there may be a possibility that Google may re-enter the tablet space. It has ignored this space since 2014 when it launched the 8.9 inch Nexus 9 tablet.
Going by Google's smartphone launches every year, there has been a growth in the size of its smartphones. While the Nexus 4 in 2012 was 4.7 inch, the Nexus 5 launched in 2013 was 5 inch, the Nexus 6 launched the following year was 6 inch. In 2015 the Nexus 5X was 5.2 inch and the Nexus 6P was 5.7 inch.
