However, when Google has changed its mind and only two phones will arrive, canceling the smallest of them (Muskie) and launching just Walleye and Taimen.
Earlier rumors claimed that Google had partnered with HTC for the manufacture of the phones but new rumors and according to the latest information Google is expected to a forces with LG, at least for the largest of them. However the company has not confirmed anything and no details are official.

The Google Pixel 2 will arrive to become one of the best phones of the year, direct to the high end. It is expected to be a phone that has a 4.97-inch screen with FullHD resolution. Inside, there will be a Qualcomm processor, the Snapdragon 835 accompanied by 4 GB of RAM and an internal storage of 64 GB although it is also expected to have a version with greater capacity.
