Google Said to Be Working on 3 Pixel Devices for 2018, Codenames Leaked


  • Codenames of Pixel devices for 2018 leaked
  • It is said to dubbed “crosshatch”, “albacore”, and “blueline”
  • New Pixel devices aren’t expected to be announced before October 2018

Google’s next-generation Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL smartphones were announced earlier this month, and are now steadily hitting market shelves in different markets. This might sound a bit early, but we already have the first details of the 2018 Pixel devices. A new report has claimed that Google may release three new Pixel devices next year.

Droid-Life reports that Google is working on three Pixel devices for 2018 reportedly codenamed “crosshatch”, “albacore”, and “blueline.” The report adds that out of three rumoured Pixel devices: two will belong to premium segment while the third will be high-end. Unfortunately, there are no more details around the alleged “crosshatch”, “albacore” and “blueline” devices for now.

The report adds that Google may end up internally calling the trio as A, B, and C devices to hide their identities from leaks. Droid-Life points that the source referred to the trio as Pixel devices. The report also refers to a device codenamed “wahoo” though details around the device are scarce at the moment.

Additionally, the report notes that “crosshatch” was mentioned in a comment on an AOSP listing in reference to Pixel devices which does raise eyeballs. Of course, as with all rumours and leaks, we advise readers to take the above information about the 2018 Pixel devices with a pinch of salt, as it’s too early for any such leak related to the hardware devices and the credibility of the sources cannot be independently verified.

Similar to previous Pixel devices, the brand new Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL are being thronged with numerous complaints.
