Google has confirmed that the Pixel Watch will be released this fall, which means it will most likely be around the end of October at the earliest. After a few months of leaks, the latest one, from about a week ago, said that the Pixel Watch would be powered by Samsung’s Exynos 9110 processor.
According to a new report from 9to5google, the above information appears to be corroborated, but with an interesting development: the Pixel Watch might very well use the Exynos 9110, but it would also include a coprocessor. In some ways, this is similar to Qualcomm’s Snapdragon Wear 4100+ SoC, which also has a primary CPU as well as a secondary ultra-low power chipset for the always-on display or even a few sensors.
While the Galaxy Watch4 has 1.5GB of RAM and 16GB of storage, sources suggest the Pixel Watch is said to have more than that and pack 32GB of storage, which is twice the storage capacity of any other Wear OS device currently on the market. There is no difference between the Fitbit Luxe and Fitbit Charge 5 sensor arrays on the back of the wearable. Even though Fitbit is owned by Google, it makes perfect sense to reuse the sensors in the heart rate monitor, SpO2, and ECG that are built into the device.
There is, of course, no guarantee that all the rumored features of the Pixel Watch will be accurate. This rumor should be treated as such for the time being.
