  • Rumor: Google Pixel XL 2 (Muskie) has been canceled

"After two years, we can't guarantee more updates", the statement said, referring to Google Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones that were launched last year. The one referenced in AOSP and understood to be the large-screen successor to the Pixel XL was codenamed "muskie", and we didn't end up learning much about it.

It's important to note with this launcher that it is not officially from Google by any means, so install at your own risk. This suggests that the new Pixel XL 2 might be larger than the one Google had previously earmarked for release.

Why, you ask? Because Google is now reported to be proceeding forward with the 5-inch Pixel 2 and a massive, 6-inch device codenamed "Taimen".

'March Against Sharia' Planned Across The US
Members of a third group also confirmed they'll attend, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center , which monitors hate groups. ACT's Facebook page for the march contains racist and violent content directed toward Islam and Muslims , the center said.

The only ones who would contemplate the 5.6-inch screen would be those selecting between it and the 5-inch Pixel (and those who prefer smaller phones would opt for the smaller Pixel instead). Since it has been reportedly cancelled, the smartphone codenamed "Taimen" should succeed Pixel XL.

The upshot of this news, if accurate, is that Google will release two Pixel devices this year, not three Pixel devices as previously rumoured. The smaller variant named "Walleye" is expected to have the same 5-inch display just like its prdecessor.

Google's Pixel phones have a reputation of being very technologically advanced devices, although they can be extremely costly. The launcher doesn't require root, simply the ability to sideload an APK and that you don't already have the standard Pixel Launcher installed.
