Pixel Watch 2 key specifications leaked, a more powerful chipset expected

Pixel Watch

Google’s Pixel Watch 2 is set to receive a significant battery life improvement. This is thanks to its transition from Samsung’s Exynos chipset to Qualcomm’s Snapdragon. With the latest rumors and leaks, we’ll dive deep into the major upgrades coming to the Pixel Watch 2. We’ll have a look at its processor, battery, and health sensors. Keep reading to find out how these changes will make the Watch 2 a game-changer in the smartwatch market.

Pixel Watch 2 chip

A leak from early May revealed that Pixel Watch 2 is coming this fall, alongside the Pixel 8 series. Moreover, the report claimed that Samsung’s Exynos 9110 SoC, which debuted back in 2018 with the Galaxy Watch, is expected to power the wearable.

Pixel Watch 2 Snapdragon W5 or W5+ chipsets

However, according to 9to5google, the Pixel Watch 2 will be powered by the Snapdragon W5 series chipset. It’s unclear which W5 chipset it will run on. But it might be the Snapdragon W5 or W5+ chipsets. The only Smartwatches running on Qualcomm’s latest wearable specific platform are the TicWatch Pro 5 and the OPPO Watch 3.

The new platform is built on the 4nm fabrication process.  It also features four A53 cores at 1.7GHz with dual Adreno 702 GPUs (1GHz). In comparison, the original Pixel Watch’s Exynos 9110 is built on a 10nm process with two Cortex-A53s. What this means is that in theory, there will be a substantial increase in processing power and efficiency.

Gizchina News of the week

Google’s decision to choose Samsung Exynos for its second-generation wearable is remarkable and surprising. We were anticipating the 5nm W920 utilized in the Galaxy Watch 4 and 5 to be used. Another possibility was the speculated W980, which is slated to appear in the Galaxy Watch 6.

Better Battery Life

The report adds that this improvement could allow for a longer usage time even with AOD ON and could even let people use it for more than a day with battery saving measures in place. Set to arrive in the fall, the Pixel Watch 2 is presumably one of the first devices to launch with the recently announced Wear OS 4. The new software update for wearables also brings improvements across the board, including efficiency gains.

Fitbit sensors + Pixel Watch 2

Finally, according to sources cited by the publication, the Pixel Watch 2 has similar health sensors to the Fitbit Sense 2. This means it could have a continuous electrodermal activity (cEDA) sensor for all-day stress management and tracking, as well as a skin temperature sensor.

Price and Availability

Google has yet to confirm the Pixel Watch 2’s pricing and release date. However, it is expected to be announced alongside the Pixel 8 later this year.
