There have been a number of rumours about the successor to Google’s Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones, which have reportedly been codenamed “Walleye” and “Muskie”, respectively.
Those codenames are particularly interesting because they link to today’s report.
Today some references were found in the Android Open Source Project (AOSP) code to these aforementioned codenames, mentioning the Snapdragon 835 CPU model number MSM8998 alongside them.
This could mean that the Pixel 2 and the Pixel 2 XL will be launched with the latest Snapdragon 835 processor installed, which is quite the impressive processor and could mean that this device will be pretty snappy.
Of course, these are just rumours, however, it wouldn’t be that hard to expect something along these lines as the original Pixel and Pixel XL launched with the Snapdragon 821, which was the best performing processor at the time.
And that’s not all that today’s leak revealed, it also brought up a new “Taimen” codename that was also linked to this Snapdragon 835 processor and is reported to be the Pixel XL tablet.
None of this is official yet, however, we will update you as we hear more.
