Google Pixel 2017 has been surrounded with rumors and leaks for a long time. Recently, a leak revealed what seems to be three new Pixel devices that could likely happen soon.

Google Pixel 2017 Devices Hitting The Store Shelves This Year

Google Pixel 2017 devices are expected to hit the store shelves in the fourth quarter of 2017. In fact, reports suggest that the tech giant is now busy working on the three upcoming devices.

The new Google Pixel 2017 devices are believed to come in the codenames Walleye, Muskie, and Taimen. According to reports, these three will be powered by Snapdragon 835 processor, which is Qualcomm's latest offering released along with Samsung Galaxy S8  and S8 Plus last month.

Google Pixel 2017's Taimen is rumored to be much bigger compared to the Muskie and Walleye, the successors of Pixel and Pixel XL devices respectively. It should be noted that Walleye is the codename given to the basic model Pixel 2, while Muskie is the codename for the bigger variant, the Pixel XL 2. Meantime, there are speculations that Google has already tied up with HTC to manufacture Google Pixel 2017, just like what happened in the two initial Pixel branded phones, ZDNet reported.

Google Pixel 2017 Codenamed Taimen Could Be A Tablet

Based on reports, Google Pixel 2017 codenamed Walleye is likely to weigh around 11 kg, while Muskie could come in 17kg, and on the other hand, Taimen is likely coming bigger with 100 kg. This has given way for some to speculate that Taimen might come as a tablet although Google has earlier stated that it is not looking at replacing its latest tablet, which is the three-year-old Nexus 9, also making any immediate successor to Chromebook Pixel 2 seem less important, Forbes reported.
