Going by the news, outed by DroidLife, the Taimen is another codename that has been given to the smartphone, which, it is being said, will feature a premium design and top-notch specifications.

The said piece of news also corroborated the fact that the next generation of Pixel smartphones have been codenamed after species of fish (Muskie and Walleye, respectively), that we also covered recently.

Let’s just wait and watch what transpires.
