Google reportedly cancels Pixel XL 2 muskie in favor of larger phone

Google reportedly cancels Pixel XL 2 muskie in favor of larger phone

HTC and Google better use a magic wand when releasing the Pixel 2, or at least take inspiration from the latest concept.

Rallies Against Islamic Law Draw Counter-Protests Across US
Sharia law does not legally exist in the United States, though some states have passed legislation preventing laws based on Islam. Demonstrators on Saturday rallied to protest Islamic law , saying it is incompatible with Western democracy.

As originally reported by Android Police, the successor to the original 5.5-inch Pixel XL (codenamed "Muskie") has been shelved in favor of a 5.8-inch device (codenamed "Taimen"). That said, the developer claims that features such as the Google Now page and the Google Search pill animation should work. If the newer reports are to be believed, Google will not be launching the Pixel XL 2, instead, an even larger phone will be launched. As Googles vision for its self-released smartphone shifted from Nexus to Pixel, along came a new and updated Pixel Launcher, one that would effectively replace the Google Now Launcher until it was discontinued back in March. What this report merely suggests is that it's not going to be the device that Google had previously prepared. Google is expected to unveil two new Pixel smartphones this year and there will be much anticipation for them given that their predecessors were very well received. The Taimen will retain the high-end specs that would have graced the Pixel XL 2, such as the Snapdragon 835 SoC and 4GB of RAM. The standard Pixel, codenamed "walleye", will likely feature a display around 5-inches or so, while the larger Pixel XL, now codenamed "taimen", will sport a screen larger than 5.5-inches. No exact measurement of the device is available yet so it is hard to know how big it would actually be.
