While the official names of the devices haven't been revealed yet, a report published by Android Police suggests the two new Google Pixel smartphones are codenamed 'Muskie' and 'Walleye,' wherein 'Walleye' will be the smaller version and will be priced at a lower rate.

Coming to the specifications of the Google Pixel 2 smartphones, a report by South Korea's Yonhap News Agency suggests that Google in collaboration with LG is going to manufacture displays for the upcoming devices. Pixel fans can expect the device to pack flexible OLED screens on the front. Moreover, the bigger version of the Google Pixel 2 device will be larger in size in comparison to the smartphones that were launched last year.

Apart from that, if a report published by Droid Life, is to be believed that a third Google Pixel 2 device is also in the making. This version is codenamed 'Taimen' and not much is known about it yet.

In terms of design, speculations suggest that Google may eliminate the headphone jack in the upcoming Google Pixel 2 smartphones. Moreover, the company also appears to be in favor of a single USB-C port rather than two. It appears like the search giant is planning on going the Apple way.
