The standard model of Google Pixel 2 is expected to be priced at around $699, while the XL version of the phone is expected to cost an additional $100.

Although the device is still in pre-production, Google is reportedly gonna invest $880 million to get the new curved OLED screens from LG screens. Despite that, we are already hearing rumors and seeing leaks about the 2017 model that's expected to launch this fall.

Avid fans of the search giant had also stated that the benchmark scores of Google Taimen could also refer to the fact that the upcoming device would not be a smartphone at all, but a flagship tablet that is set to succeed the Pixel C or the Nexus 9.

Currently, there is not much that is known about the Pixel successors. Spotted on GeekBench, the latter should be powered by 4 GB of RAM and a Snapdragon 835 processor, the same one that is present inside the United States version of the Galaxy S8.

The unreleased device, simply named Google Taimen by the benchmarking site, was indeed equipped with powerful specs.

Muskie, Taimen, and Walleye have all recently been referenced together in the Android Open Source Project, which would seem to further suggest that Google will indeed have three devices coming to market at some point in 2017. On the other hand, Apple is also rumored to utilize a flexible OLED panel in its next generation iPhone. Who wants to compete with Google Pixel 2?

Samsung's very own Galaxy S8 is now holding the title being the greatest Android smartphone for 2017. There is a strong chance the Google will still improve on these numbers as the device gets nearer to its release date. The single-core score came close to that of the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Sony Xperia XZ Premium at 1804. According to the review of Digital Trends, Samsung Galaxy S8 managed 1762 in single core and 5723 in a multi core.
