Although the tech giant has yet to confirm the exact Google Pixel 2 release date, but the former president of Motorola, Rick Osterloh, was hired to head Google's new hardware division, and Osterloh confirmed that Google is currently developing and finalizing the new version of Google's Pixel range, Value Walk reported.

Nevertheless, Google's next-gen Pixel smartphones will be available in three different models. The tech giant codenamed the handsets as Muskie, Walleye and Taimen. The Taimen, which is the third Google Pixel 2 iteration, could be the largest smartphone from the tech giant.
