2017's Google Pixel Could Be Available In XXL

2017's Google Pixel Could Be Available In XXL

In 2016, Google introduced its Pixel line of smartphones with Google Pixel and Pixel XL.

Google Pixel XL phone is displayed at the new Google pop-up shop in the SoHo neighborhood on October 20, 2016, in New York City. This is to note that there is no official statement by Google confirming the news and is just a rumor for now.

This means that, whereas rumors have abounded that Google would craft 3 phones, the company will return to its two-phone model.

The only ones who would contemplate the 5.6-inch screen would be those selecting between it and the 5-inch Pixel (and those who prefer smaller phones would opt for the smaller Pixel instead). If Google is indeed planning on launching a phone that has a bigger screen size than the Pixel XL's 5.5-inch panel, one has to wonder if they plan on going with a new design - one with minimal bezels, which is all the rage these days. Not much is expected to change regarding Google's Pixel and Pixel XL branding, but the rumored "muskie" codenamed smartphone (a.k.a. Pixel XL 2) is expected to be canceled and replaced by the "taimen" codenamed smartphone (a.k.a. mystery Pixel with even larger screen).

In a nutshell, Google will still be releasing two new Pixel phones this year. Now a third-party developer says he has found a way to get the Pixel Launcher's exclusive features to work on third-party devices. The launcher doesn't require root, simply the ability to sideload an APK and that you don't already have the standard Pixel Launcher installed.
