Google’s Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones are getting sequels this year, and it looks like the company has already given them codenames. The next-generation Pixel 2 phones have been given the codenames “muskie” and “walleye.”

One of the codenames of the Pixel 2, walleye, was first discovered on the Android Open Source Project and shared by Android Police. The codename muskie hasn’t been discovered on the AOSP site yet, and it’s likely that it won’t surface at all.

Like the current Google Pixel phones, muskie and walleye are two different size models — the former being the smaller one and the latter being the larger.

Back when Google’s Pixel phones were being developed last year, it was discovered that one of the models was given the codename marlin on the same AOSP website. Because of this, the muskie and walleye codenames are likely accurate for the Google Pixel 2.

For the uninitiated, muskies and walleyes are both North American fresh water fish. Muskies are larger than walleyes, which is why it’s believed that the device with that codename will be the larger XL model.

Google continues its fish naming scheme for its Pixel phones this year. The Pixel and Pixel XL were given the codenames sailfish and marlin last year, while the Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X carried the codenames angler and bullhead.

Google’s codenames for its devices generally do not give away any information on specs, but they may indicate that the devices are currently under development. However, it would really be a treat if this year’s codenames actually hinted at water-resistant features.

Previous rumors have indicated that Google is testing a variety of chips for the Pixel 2 including the unspecified Snapdragon 83X chip and processors from Intel, according to 9To5Google. There’s also a rumor that the 2017 Google Pixel phones will no longer have 3.5mm headphone jacks.
