Codenamed Taimen - Google back to making bigger phonesPor Orquidea Banes Mar 20, 2017
We saw it happen with the Nexus 4, Nexus 5 and Nexus 6, but things changed with the Nexus 6P and to worse with the new Google Pixel phones. This new phone will be substantially bigger than the two siblings and be Google's biggest phone to date. If the latest reports are to be believed, we could see a change to the upcoming Google Pixel 2 where the tech giant will go back to its previous trend of increasing the screen size on the flagship. This third Pixel 2 has been codenamed 'taimen'.
Earlier this week, it emerged that the Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL are being worked on under code names Muskie and Walleye. The 4.7-inch Nexus 4 was codenamed Mako while the following 5-inch Nexus 5 received the codename Hammerhead.
In order to understand more, let's have a look at the previous models and their codenames: Nexus 6 - 6 inches - Shamu, Nexus 5X - 5.2 inches - Bullhead, Nexus 6P - 5.7 inches - Anger, Pixel - 5.1 inces - Sailfish, Pixel XL - 5.5 inches - Marlin.
So, for those not familiar with Google's latest fish, muskies (circa 17kg / 38lbs) are significantly larger than walleyes (11kg / 24lbs) but taimen are truly massive and can weigh over 100kg / 220 lbs.
This is not odd at all, especially at a time when Samsung Galaxy S8 is shifting from the traditional 5.1-inch screen size to a larger 5.8-inch panel and LG just released a 5.7-inch G6 to succeed the 5.3-inch G5.
However, there is also the possibility that Google may want to bring a tablet to the market, given the huge size difference between the codenames.
The Taimen could also be a successor to Pixel C hybrid which debuted in 2015.
Anyway, we know for sure the Google is planning big for their next release, and it's not just an expression considering the possible sizes.
