2016 will have been the year of change for Google. While the company wanted to remain a developer above all on the Android sphere, it finally assumed its ambition to conquer the market as a manufacturer by unveiling the Google Pixel and Pixel XL.

Two high-potential phones, but still their first try. That’s why we look forward to the future Google Pixel 2, which will be released this time while Google Assistant should also support our beautiful language by September.

3 Google Pixel 2 planned this year with the Snapdragon 835

Now, the builder could have some surprises in his bag. We waited like last year two smartphones, but there would finally … 3! This is at least what the AOSP code reveals, always talkative for the occasion.

This shows that 3 devices are currently under development. First we have Muskie and Walleye, the nicknames given to Google Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2, but also a certain “Taimen” that slips into history.

The 3 devices would be powered by the Snapdragon 835 if one believes this listing, spotted on the AOSP. But the latter is the most mysterious of the three, and might not necessarily be a smartphone.

According to the rumor, it could just as well be a phablet to a big screen than a tablet. The rumor has long been that a new Nexus 7 developed by Huawei is on the agenda for Google. This would even imply the release of Andromeda, the developer’s famous new OS.

We know that all 3 smartphones appeared on Geekbenche in the past few days, all three proved them best and scored well.

One of the three devices, the “Taimen” made its appearance on benchmarks. More precisely, this is Geekbench, a screenshot obviously confirms various information. First, let’s observe the scores: 1804 in single core is rather a good result although we saw better in our tests (for example, the S8 has a score of 1983), and 6248 in multi core. Here again, the S8 and S8 + do better but this remains a very good score.

We can also find various information about the screenshot. First of all, in the first line, the operating system: no surprise this is Android O. This new version of Android can already be tested on some devices and highlights the gap between the various manufacturers Software interface, you will find more information in our article on Android fragmentation.
