Google is reportedly working on a Non-Pixel smartphone codenamed “Taimen”

Google has entered the smartphone market with the debutants Pixel and the Pixel XL last year. Both the devices are quite impressive and offer a really good Android experience. Talking about Google’s smartphone offerings, yesterday we had reported about the two new Pixel smartphones that Google was working on that are codenamed “muskie” and “walleye.” However, now we have a report which claims that the company is working on yet another smartphone codenamed “Taimen”. It has reported that multiple sources have confirmed the name and the device in question.

According to the source, this new smartphone which the company is internally calling “Taimen” is not going to be a part of the Pixel family. It is expected to be a different phone altogether and will be nowhere related to Pixel smartphones. Taimen is expected to come with a relatively large display on the front when compared to what is expected out of new Pixel smartphones. And just like “muskie” and “walleye”, “Taimen” is also a fish or an aquatic animal which is similar what we have seen from Google in the past as well. Taimen is a large fish as well, hence the name fits perfectly well.

Apart from this, we don’t have much info about this alleged new smartphone. While the display is expected to be bigger, it is not exactly clear as to how big this will be. However, considering the fact that it is going to be a smartphone, we expect it to be smaller than 6″ or maybe if we can get a bezel-less device with a huge display. Also, the possibility of this smartphone being bezel-less is high since it looks like the new Pixels will also have huge bezels like we saw with last year’s Pixel smartphones.

With said, it is quite interesting to see such a move from Google considering the fact that they have just entered the smartphone market with their own smartphones and are already ready to explore the possibilities widely. We are waiting some more info on this new smartphone from Google, meanwhile, be sure to let us know what do you think about this.
