9to5google states that the clock will be powered by Exynos 9110 SoC, which is a 2018 chipset based on a 10nm manufacturing process with two Cortex-A53 cores. The report has clouded the excitement of the launch of the watch.
While there is no confirmation of this report, the information is being received with a certain amount of dismay since this chipset is almost four years old. Exynos 9110 chipset was first launched in 2018.
Previously, it was rumored that the watch would be powered by the Exynos W920 which is also used in the Galaxy Watch 4. Hence, consumers have doubts about the quality and capability of this new watch, given that it is likely to use a dated chip. Whether this news is true or not, it will be known only in the near future, as the launch date is approaching.
Leaksters were having a field day with this product, and the announcement at the Google I/O event confirming the launch only piqued their interest in the watch. Google is rolling out its smartwatches to its Pixel hardware line as part of its “ambient computing” vision to make its services available anywhere and at all times.
Since rumors were swirling about the Pixel Watch, there weren’t many surprises during the launch. It comes with a circular, domed styling shape and has a ‘tactile’ crown and a side button. The smartwatch has a new Fitbit integration, but everything else is pretty standard with other native Google apps.
It’s made from recycled stainless steel and has swappable proprietary bands. The watch will be powered by an “improved” Wear OS 3 with a “refreshed UI” and will allow for better navigation and smarter notifications.
