The Google Pixel Watch 2, which is slated to debut, will replace the original Pixel Watch, which was made available in October 2022. The initial Pixel Watch had an Exynos 9110 SoC and a 1.2-inch AMOLED touch screen with 3D Corning Gorilla Glass protection. Additionally, the watch made a 24-hour battery life claim. The successor to the Pixel Watch is anticipated to have a better SoC and battery. According to a recent story, the alleged Google wearable is likely to receive upgrades.
The internal Exynos 9110 chipset seen in the first-generation Google Pixel Watch is slated to be replaced by a Qualcomm Snapdragon W5 Gen 1 SoC, according to a report from Android Authority. It was previously reported that the Pixel Watch 2’s hardware would be upgraded. According to rumours, the Snapdragon W5 processor is built using the same Samsung 4nm process as the majority of the 2021 and 2022 smartphone processors, giving it a substantial efficiency advantage over the Snapdragon W4. Additionally, it supports recent low-power states, including Deep Sleep and Hibernation, which is anticipated to lengthen the Pixel Watch 2’s battery life.
Ultrawide-band (UWB), which is becoming a more common connectivity choice alongside Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and NFC, is anticipated to be included in the Pixel Watch 2. Utilising pulse-based radio waves, which are also employed in technology to find one device using another, UWB devices enable users to send and receive data across short distances. According to reports, Google is also attempting to enhance its Find My Device network, which functions similarly to Apple’s AirTag. According to the source, the capability can be used as a replacement for a Pixel tablet or Google Nest device’s movie playback capabilities or as a digital car key.
The Pixel Watch 2 is anticipated to have a slightly larger 306mAh battery than the Pixel Watch 2022 model, which is likely to deliver a battery life of up to 24 hours and represents a substantial four percent gain over its predecessor. The forthcoming smart wearable is also probably going to come pre-installed with Wear OS 4, which is based on Android 13.
The codenames “Eos” and “Aurora,” which are anticipated to be the LTE and only Wi-Fi editions, respectively, of the Pixel Watch 2, are said to be being developed. The 1.2-inch round OLED display with thick bezels and a resolution of 384 x 384 pixels is anticipated to remain in the new edition, although Samsung Display displays are likely to take the place of the BOE panel that was used in the Pixel Watch.
