The latest Pixel Watch was reported to be housing Samsung’s Exynos 9110 chipset. Now we have new sources confirming this and information on other watch specs.
A second source has confirmed that the Pixel Watch would feature Samsung’s Exynos 9110 processor. Additionally, it will be paired with a co-processor that presumably works to offload various tasks away from the main CPU. Given this component addition, it’ll be interesting to see if Tensor branding appears on the Pixel Watch.
For comparison, Qualcomm’s QCC1110 coprocessor on the Snapdragon Wear 4100+ enables up to 64K colors on the always-on display (AOD), offloading more sensors, and other sensors’ always-on experiences. This translates to “constant heart rate monitoring and sleeps for health and wellbeing, faster tilt-to-wake responsiveness, step counting, alarms, timers, and haptics.” The Pixel Watch is anticipated to utilize its co-processor in a similar fashion, though we cannot confirm this.
Similarly, we can confirm that the Pixel Watch will have 32GB of storage, as previously reported. That’s more than double what’s now available on the Wear OS market, raising worries about how it’ll be used. The most obvious use case matches the capacity of the latest Apple Watch: downloading songs from YouTube Music and Spotify for offline playback.
More news and information on the device will be given in the days to come.
