“Comet” codenamed Pixel phone can be either Google’s next first flip or Pixel Fold 2
It has not been long since Google launched its first-ever foldable smartphone named Google Pixel Fold. Its next foldable smartphone has grabbed the headline by appearing in the latest version of the Google Pixel Buds app.
According to the 9to5Google report a new device codenamed “Comet” has been spotted on the latest version of the Google Pixel Buds application. Along with it, models codenamed “Shiba” and “Husky” for Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro have also been spotted on the app.
The report has reasoned that Comet is not likely to be part of the Pixel 8 generation as it has been spotted with a dog breed as a codename. Earlier, there were fanbased renders that showcased what the Google Fixel Flip would look like.
Furthermore, the report suggested that Pixel smartphones that incorporated Tensor G2 processors like Pixel 7 series (“Cheetah” and “Panther”) Pixel Fold was originally code named Felix came with such model names. And Pixel 9 series models are likely to come with reptile-based codenames.
Collectively this all suggests that Comet doesn’t belong to all of them and might be a Pixel Flip, a clamshell foldable model. However, it’s just too early to say whether it’s the next Foldable or a completely new Flip phone from Google.
