We already know Google is working on successors to the Pixel and Pixel XL, but rumors haven’t exactly pointed to many details just yet. But one rumor that seems like a pretty tangible favorite amongst enthusiasts is the potential for a third Pixel smartphone. We know the Pixel 2 is codenamed Muskie while the Pixel 2 XL is Walleye, but a mysterious Taimen codename has been floating around and has been assumed to be a third Google Pixel. This speculation sounds kind of crazy, but with Google, really anything is possible.
Today on Geekbench (via Slashleaks), this third Pixel got its share of benchmarks. As we can see in the chart below, the Taimen Pixel has an octa-core 1.9Ghz Snapdragon 835 processor, probably 4GB of RAM, and runs Android O. It scored 1804 on the single-core test and 6248 on the multi-core. It’s worth mentioning this slouches behind the leaked OnePlus 5’s benchmarks which tally up to 1963 on the single-core and 6687 on the multi-core. Of course, better refinement of the hardware and software before the handset’s released could fix this comparison so the Pixel 2 reigns supreme, but for now, this is how things stand. Take it as you will.
