This might be the worst thing about Google's upcoming Pixel 2

We are expecting to see some new Google Pixel smartphones this year and now we have some more information on these two handsets. However, unlike the Taimen, which will come with a refreshed design, Walleye will deliver a almost identical look and feel to last year's smaller Google Pixel, the report says. A 5.99-inch display with a 1440p OLED panel will be provided by LG, as reported by XDA-Developers.

XDA's source says the Taimen/Pixel 2 XL will have a 5.99-inch display and much smaller bezels than on the previous Pixel XL, meaning it could have a similar form-factor than its predecessor. Internally, the phone is said to feature a Snapdragon 835 processor, 4GB of RAM, a 128GB internal storage option and a single rear-facing camera with dual LED flash.

Stay tuned, more leaks are upcoming. As everyone knows, the South Korean brand has manufactured Nexus devices for Google before. Even though some people suggested that Google was working on budget- friendly device this time around, it seems it won't be the case. Unlike its larger sibling, however, the design of the smaller Pixel 2 device would be largely identical to last year's versions. Hence, going by the current spec sheet, it appears Google needs to up the ante with its upcoming Pixel 2 handsets to get an edge over its competitors.

The Google Pixel 2 series was initially rumored to be released as a triad, with one device being a 5-inch device, another sporting a 5.5-inch display and the last being a 6-inch behemoth of a device.

But they both failed the police's safety tests, which are similar to those being carried out by the United Kingdom government. Thermal cladding is to be removed from 10 London tower blocks as a precaution following the Grenfell Tower fire.

The Walleye device is said to be smaller than Taimen, boasting a comparatively dinky 4.97-inch display with a Full HD 1080p resolution. Major smartphone companies have already released their new devices and now it is time for Google to release the newest updates on their Pixel variants.

Taimen and Walleye, next Pixel Smartphones are codenamed so. Like the PIxel XL 2, the non-XL model will be powered by a Snapdragon 835 processor, so it should stand up well to the competition in the general objective computing as well as gaming and graphics.

Does Google have a place in the smartphone race? The design is reported to be nearly identical to last year's model down to the bezels. The phone will not have a 3.5mm headphone jack. It is possible for the smartphone to have more storage variants. A year ago after Apple dropped the feature from the iPhone 7, Google proudly stated that its Pixel phones had a headphone jack.
