Google Pixel 2 “Taimen” shows up in GeekBench results, lags behind OnePlus 5

by Brandon Russell | May 11, 2017

Google is reportedly working on three different Pixel 2 models, one of which—Taimen—has appeared in GeekBench results. This is reportedly the same device that was rumored back in March, in which a report claimed the device will be larger than the Pixel XL.

According to the Geekbench score, Taimen will feature a Snapdragon 835 chip clocked at 1.9GHz and 4GB of RAM. The listing also references Android O, a new software update Google unveiled a few months ago. You can bet the device will launch with the final version—and some Pixel exclusive features—of Android O later this fall.

The Geekbench results reveal a single-core score of 1804 and a multi-core score of 6248. Impressive results, to be sure, but not nearly as good as what we saw from the OnePlus 5 earlier this week; that device nabbed a single-core score of 1963 and a multi-core score of 6687.

Google’s Taimen device is said to be one of three Pixel 2 models, with the other being codenamed Muskie and Walleye.

Not much is known about Google’s upcoming devices, other than the fact that the search giant may release three different versions—something Apple is expected to do with its iPhone this fall.

If Google can figure out how to improve on the Pixel’s camera, it may once again have a phone of the year contender on its hands.

As an aside, Google has its I/O developers conference set for next week, though we’re not expecting to see any Pixel 2 news until this fall.
