According to a report, A co-processor and more RAM than any other Wear OS device will be included in the Pixel Watch.
A four-year-old processor was revealed in the first Google Pixel Watch leak, but the latest report from 9to5Google’s sources sounds much more promising.
The Exynos 9110 processor found in the original 2018 Samsung Galaxy Watch is confirmed by the site’s new source, but there’s an important twist. According to reports, it will be used in conjunction with a co-processor.
This is likely to work in a similar fashion to the Snapdragon Wear 4100+, where a low-power QCC1110 coprocessor assists the main chip in certain tasks.
It’s possible that if this is correct, the Pixel Watch will have a faster processor than the first three generations of Samsung’s Galaxy Watch. A more interesting question is how it will fare against the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 and its Exynos W920 chip.
In comparison to the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 and every other Wear OS device, Google’s sources claim that the Pixel Watch has two major advantages.
The first is random-access memory (RAM). “Slightly” more RAM than the 1.5GB in the Galaxy Watch 4 is expected in the Pixel Watch, according to the website. When TicWatch Pro went from 512MB to 1GB RAM, we saw a dramatic increase in Wear OS performance, though there may be diminishing returns beyond 1.5GB RAM.
According to a source 9to5Google the Pixel Watch will have 32GB of storage. If you don’t want to bring your phone with you, you can listen to offline music from Spotify or YouTube Music with this watch, which has twice the storage capacity of other Wear OS watches, reports the site.
On top of that, the website reveals that the Pixel Watch will have a heart-rate sensor that supports SpO2 and ECG readings. This is good news, given Google’s promise to incorporate Fitbit software into the Pixel Watch.
In a statement, Google confirmed that the Pixel Watch is indeed real and will be released in the fall, along with the Pixel 7.
There’s still no word on the price, which could make or break Google’s first attempt at a smartwatch if it doesn’t come out with more information before then. Get all the latest news about Pixel Watch by visiting our Pixel Watch hub.
