More RAM, two chipsets
According to a new claim, the Google Pixel Watch’s internals may not be as inadequate as we thought. The latest claim follows a previous leak that the wearable would be powered by the Exynos 9110 chipset, which is four years old.
The Pixel Watch, meanwhile, will reportedly use a second chipset to assist spread the burden, according to insiders speaking to 9to5Google (the Snapdragon Wear 4100+ does something similar).
Although the co-full processor’s capabilities have yet to be confirmed, it may possibly handle duties like controlling the always-on display and ensuring that health and fitness statistics are always tracked.
There’s also more RAM
According to this latest rumour, the Pixel Watch will contain more RAM than any other Wear OS smartwatch currently on the market (i.e., more than the 1.5GB of RAM seen in the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4).
Those improved internals should assist to provide a seamless user experience and speedier performance, alleviating some of the concerns raised when the Exynos 9110 announcement surfaced. After all, we’re talking about a Google flagship wearable that’s been a long time coming.
Finally, the smartwatch is expected to have a large 32GB internal storage capacity, which is comparable to previous models. ECG, blood oxygen monitoring, and heart rate sensing are all likely to be incorporated.
Working with Fitbit and Samsung has many advantages
Despite the fact that it’s now official, we still don’t know much about the Pixel Watch – and the speculations are likely to continue until it goes on sale. At Google IO 2022, Google released a few details, but many doubts remain.
We do know that, as expected, the wristwatch will operate well with Google’s services. Following Google’s acquisition of Fitbit, some of Fitbit’s sensor accuracy expertise will be included into the Pixel Watch.
Another relationship that benefits Google and the Pixel Watch is with Samsung: the chipset design is reportedly closing in on that used by Samsung for its Exynos chipsets, enhancing efficiency and performance.
With so much riding on this device and its introduction, Google made a wise decision to partner with companies like Fitbit and Samsung, which have far more experience in this industry. It will be interesting to see if it pays off.
