Mystery Google Pixel 2 "Taimen" model appears on Geekbench running Android O

There has been talk of three new Pixel models for 2017. As usual, Google looked to the ocean for the code names it is using on these phones. The Pixel 2 has a code name of Muskie, while the larger Pixel 2 XL is dubbed Walleye. And then there is a third unit with the code name of Taimen.
This is the model that appeared today on the Geekbench benchmark site. Running on Android O, the next build of the open source OS, the phone was tested with the Snapdragon 835 chipset under the hood, running the octa-core CPU at a clock speed of 1.9GHz. The single-core test resulted in a score of 1804 while the multi-core score hit 6248.
The Pixel and Pixel XL were introduced and launched last October, so we could be months away from seeing the sequels meet the light of day. And of course, there is this mystery Taimen model that will apparently turn the duo of Pixels into a trio this year.

As long as this version is 5.8' or bigger, this will be my next phone.

Why would you want a phone nearly six feet across?

5.8' = 69.6 Inches... I don't know about you; but that's 'big arse TV' territory... You must be a giant from "Brobdingnagian" (Not a typo)... What is Brobdingnagian, you ask...? Come-on little ones, never read Gulliver's Travels, eh...? Anyhow, I wonder what Android 'O' will be called... Anyone...? If it was up to me; I'd name it "Android Omelet"... "Omelet With sugar on top", if it must be something sweet... I'm just so sick of those bloody desert names... Mere mention of Android gives me a sugar rush now... Like... Right now...! I mean; notice this post's wiggly giggly pattern...! Oh well, eh? G'Day!

The Muskie and Walleye are fresh water fish. They are also much smaller than the other fish used for code names. [Mako, Hammerhead, Shamu, Bullhead, Angler, Sailfish, Marlin] I doubt it means anything though. But who knows.
