A few days ago, we got to know that Google will launch not two but three Pixel devices thus year, each of which will be powered by the Snapdragon 835 chipset. If you don’t know, Google will announce Android O this year at the Google I/O 2017, and as we all know, the developer preview is already available for testing the new features. Today, we have got the information that Google has already started testing out the Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL on Android 8.0 AOSP ( Android O).
We got this information via Devid Zeuthen, the Senior Software Engineer at Google. He said that he is testing the ‘Walleye.’ device. Now, if you don’t know, the next Pixel phones ( Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL) have been codenamed as “Walleye” and “Muskie”. Now, there are chances that Google will announce the new Pixel devices at the same event where Android O will be launched as the company wants to reunite the release of final Android version and its next smartphone. This time also, the phones will be manufactured by HTC.
We don’t have more details about the phones yet but surely, we will get some in coming days. Also, the Google I/O is im Mid-may so it will be interesting to see if Google launches the Google Pixel 2 , Pixel 2 XL and a third Pixel device next month or in October (Just like last year).
