Google rumored to be building a large non-Pixel phone
A report published today cites multiple sources as revealing that another Google branded handset, code named "taimen," will be released this year. This phone is not believed to be related to the Pixel line in any way. According to Google search, the "taimen" is the world's largest salmonid which means that this phone could come with a huge display. You might recall that "shamu" was the code name for the 6-inch Motorola made Nexus 6.
Speaking of Nexus, could this mean the resurrection of the stock Android series that first launched in 2010 with the Nexus One? 2016 was the first year without a Nexus release since the HTC built Nexus One was released. The last models to wear the distinguished brand were 2015's Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X. Those two were manufactured by Huawei and LG respectively. While HTC was rumored to be manufacturing a pair of Pixel handsets in 2016, those turned out to be the Google Pixel and Google Pixel XL handsets.
