    So this is confirmation of what was leaked months ago. Mind you, the leaks were pretty accurate and comprehensive for these devices.
    Shame about the third one (muskie was it?) - a smaller 2:1 display device would have been my first choice.

    I thought I remembered reading muskie was the Pixel 2 XL and then later dismissed. I know these codenames were floating around but I don't think anyone had 100% confidence.

    Muskie was originally going to be the Pixel 2 XL, but Google decided to go with the even bigger Taimen made by LG. I wonder if Muskie was basically a bigger version of the HTC-made Walleye, but then Google decided they needed slim bezels on at least one model, so they called up LG.

    Possible, but I do recall one leaked device profile which showed a 5.5" 2:1 display for the Muskie. Of course that may not have been accurate, but the Walleye one that was leaked around the same time turned out to be correct.
