Do you still miss your whale sized Nexus 6? Some people do, and it’s that size phone that Google is rumoured to be going for with sources telling Android Police that they’ve shelved the device codenamed ‘muskie’, which was to succeed the Pixel XL in favour of a larger device.
The rumoured ‘taimen’ device was first brought to light by Droid-Life back in March, which sparked speculation that Google may have three phones to release this year, with ‘Walleye’ the smaller Pixel replacement, Muskie the larger Pixel XL replacement, leaving Taimen to be a massive over-size option, but it looks like we’re back to two.
Android Police aren’t speculating on why the change has occurred, just that Muskie has been shelved in favour of Taimen and they’re confident in the information.
I personally wasn’t a huge fan of the Nexus 6 size, and the smaller Pixel isn’t big enough for me so how a ‘BIG’ Pixel goes, we’ll have to wait till September to find out.
