With another three months to go before the new models will be officially presented, more and more smartphone specs appear online, recently the Google Pixel XL 2 appeared in the GFXBench benchmark list.

A Google phone; it sounds so logical that it is in fact odd a phone with this name does not yet officially exist. On the other hand, Google has always insisted that software and related services are its core business, and has claimed it simply does not see launching a Google phone onto the market as a valid option. However, rumors are growing stronger by the minute, and the most recent information seems to point more and more towards an imminent introduction of the first Google mobile phone. This phone, if it indeed appears, will be launched onto the market under the Google brand name, and according to the latest information, this is supposed to happen around the summer of 2010.

Manufactures are more than eager to jump on the Android train in order to not miss out. During the last few weeks, quite a number of Android smartphones have either been introduced or leaked through non-official channels, and it looks like we are about to see another one. ZiiLabs, part of the renowned Creative Technology, and designer of the striking ZiiEgg, is now going to use the Android platform to dive into mobile telephony and with that thought in mind, it seems only a matter of time before we will get to see a Zii Android smartphone or a ZiiEgg smartphone.
