  • The brand new Google codenames “Clementine” and “Kiyomi” have emerged within the first beta of Android 14 QPR3.
  • A citrus connection may point out that at the least considered one of these secretive gadgets could possibly be the Pixel Pill 2.
  • If a Pixel Pill successor is within the pipeline, don’t anticipate to see it within the close to future.

With the primary technology of the Google Pixel Pill now firmly established within the Android pill market, there could also be some early clues {that a} successor is on the way in which. New codenames noticed within the just lately launched first beta of Android 14 QPR3 could possibly be placeholders for the Pixel Pill 2.

As first reported by 9to5Google after digging into the code, the codenames “Clementine” and “Kiyomi” seem for the primary time. The publication goes on to purpose that these citrus-related names — kiyomi being a hybrid Japanese citrus fruit — comply with the identical theme because the codename for the unique Pixel Pill, which had the moniker “Tangor” whereas in improvement. It’s speculative, however we expect the logic is sound.

Even when correct, the subsequent Google pill (or tablets) having a codename wouldn’t be affirmation {that a} launch will comply with. Google has a historical past of killing tasks, and whereas the Pixel Pill confirmed some promise, it was removed from a shocking success. We additionally don’t know if a successor would even be named the Pixel Pill 2. That’s the apparent guess, however a Pixel Pill Professional wouldn’t be out of the query, for instance. The invention of two codenames quite than one additionally provides to the intrigue.

If there’s to be a Pixel Pill 2, it’s possible nonetheless a good distance off. The unique slate solely launched in Might 2023, and the truth that Google releases a brand new Pixel cellphone annually doesn’t imply it might intention for a similar schedule for its pill line. The demand for tablets is lower than that for smartphones, and even the profitable Samsung Galaxy Tab vary solely tends to launch a brand new machine each 18 months or so.

Provided that we haven’t noticed some other leaks or clues, we suspect that the earliest a Pixel Pill successor is more likely to emerge can be late 2024 or early 2025. We’ll definitely hold our eyes peeled. Till then, make sure you try what we all know and what we wish to see from the Pixel Pill 2.
