Recently, we have seen a new device benchmarked on Geekbench, dubbed “Google Taimen”. The listing appeared on May 11 and it is quite scarce when it comes to details. Even so, there are some interesting points that deserve some attention.
One of the most interesting features is the fact that the device listed on Geekbench will be running on Android O. Currently, we can only access the developer preview for the Android O, but everybody is curious to find out what it will bring. Similarly, the device was depicted as running on 4 GB RAM and a Qualcomm Snapdragon octa-core processor, clocked at 1.90 GHz. Most likely, the latter represents the Snapdragon 835 model.
Besides these, we can also notice that the result for the single-core test reached 1804, while the multicore one came as high as 6248. Both of them are quite reasonable scores on Geekbench, which attests that it is indeed a good device.
Pixel member or not?
All in all, these are mainly all the details that are included on the benchmark. Even so, the mere fact that there is such a presence on the website is noteworthy. Up until now, the Taimen device was merely a rumor, but now it seems that there is more to it than just speculations. People expect the Taimen device to be released by Google this year, together with the current 2017 Pixel range. However, we don’t know yet whether it will still carry the Pixel name or not.
Besides Taimen, people are also expecting the tech giant to release two more other phones, codenamed Walleye and Muskie. Muskie should be the smallest of the three, and a sequel to the Google Pixel standard device. Taimen seems to be the biggest one, according to the codename, but it remains to be seen.
