As previously tipped, it looks like Google will be throwing their lot in with LG Electronics when it comes to future versions of their Pixel smartphone.

According to new reports out of 9to5Google, LG is involved as a manufacturer of the recently-rumored Pixel XXL mode.

“LG Electronics is manufacturing a device refered to as Taimen,” they claimed.

This lines up with reports earlier this week that plans for a second-generation Pixel XL (codenamed Muskie) had be retired in favor of a new ‘XXL’ model (codenamed Taimen).

Though previous reports had seemed to suggest that Google planned to continue to work with HTC on Pixel devices for at least another year, the choice to jump ship to LG (at-least in part) suggests that features like an OLED display might come to the Pixel range sooner rather than later.

The HTC-built Pixel and Pixel XL are said to have moved over 2.1 million units since their launch in September 2016.

Google’s follow-up devices are expected to release between August and October this year in order to coincide with the release of the Android O software update.
