A recently spotted bug entry has sent mixed signals that LG may be doing more than supply Google with flexible OLED displays for the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL. Found under the codename "taimen," a bug entry report has sent folks believing that LG has a larger role for the next Google mobile devices.

The news comes from the Android Issue Tracker where a bug entry by an LG employee last March cites a "USB PD Compliance Failure." A Google employee alleged wanted the issue closed, likely because it was resolved.

Whether the issue has been resolved or not is irrelevant, it seems. The focus is the capacity LG has over the Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL. There are technically two devices in the works. One is “taimen” and the other is "walleye." The latter is more likely to be Google Pixel 2 XL, the former already hinted as the Google Pixel 2.

Prior to LG entering the fray, HTC was the company closely associated with manufacturing both devices. Seeing how Google and HTC have been doing great, the assumption may be logical.

However, LG has had its share of producing phones that have become popular in the market. They had also worked with Google for the Nexus 4, Nexus 5 and Nexus 5X. So seeing LG as at least one of the manufacturers may hardly come as a surprise.

Seeing HTC and LG work on separate Google Pixel 2 versions could still be possible. LG did it before alongside Huawei with the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P. The latter was the one assigned to Huawei at that time.

With "taimen" linked to LG, the "walleye" could likely be the one HTC is tasked to handle. Either way, all these should be taken lightly until official news comes straight from Google.

As previously reported by IBT AU, the focus was on the flexible OLED displays that aims to be innovative and progressive. That titanic deal initially hinted at a large supply, though the spotting could result into more earnings for the Korean electronics giant. Seeing how most phones started to shift to curved OLED displays, it may be safe to assume that the Google Pixel 2 will have one if LG is indeed in the manufacturing process.
