Thanks to a tweet from famed leaker Evan Blass, we now know that both Pixel 2 models will use the Snapdragon 836, and they'll be unveiled on October 5th. Read More

OnLeaks is at it again. After revealing renders of the LG V30 a couple of weeks ago, the leakster has collaborated with MySmartPrice one more time to publish 3D renders of the most anticipated phone of this fall. No, not the Note 8, silly. Not the iPhone 8 either. We're on Android Police, dammit, it's the Pixel 2! Or at least that's the name the device is being called, though no one is 100% sure of the name yet.
We already know a little about the Pixel 2 and its bigger brother, the Pixel 2 XL. In June, we heard some rumored specs like the two devices' screen sizes (4.95" and 5.99", respectively), 4GB RAM, 64GB and 128GB storage, stereo speakers, and lack of 3.5mm headphone jack. Read More

A few things are known about the two upcoming successors to the Google Pixel and Pixel XL - we know that taimen is the largest of Google's 2017 devices, that muskie was shelved in favor of taimen and that taimen is being made by LG.

Our friends over at XDA spoke with a source who has spent time with "at least one of these phones," and believe this information to be valid given the source's track record. Read More
Based on information from three separate sources, we are now confident that Google has shelved plans to release one of its upcoming Pixel phones. The device, codenamed 'muskie,' was intended to succeed the Pixel XL. While we know very little about muskie, and now likely will never learn much else, we are confident that this phone was supposed to be the second-generation Pixel XL.
We rate this information 9 out of 10 on our rumor confidence scale. We have corroborated this story with several sources we deem reliable. The good news? That doesn't mean there won't be a new Pixel XL - just that it's not going to be muskie. Read More
