Google Pixel XL 2 rumoured codename Muskie sighted in Android Open Source Project

Pixel XL

It’s that time of year again already and the Google rumour mill is beginning to churn out Pixel 2 speculation at a rapid pace. We’ve already seen rumours regarding a purported Pixel successor, codenamed Walleye and Muskie.

Now, according to Android Authority, Muskie has now been spotted in the Android Open Source Project (AOSP) gerrit, a web-based code review system for Android related projects. Just a few weeks ago Android Police writer David Ruddock broke the initial news regarding Muskie, Google’s rumoured successor to the Pixel XL.

The other rumoured Pixel 2, currently codenamed Walleye, is tipped to be a smaller device than the Muskie, which makes sense given it’s likely the successor to the standard sized Google Pixel. We also know about another device that has been reported to be different from either the Pixel or the Pixel XL, an entirely new product currently codenamed Taimen.

Taimen is rumoured to be a larger device that’s either a tablet or large phablet.

All this sounds a bit “fishy.”
