Pixel smartwatch with Wear OS, new Qualcomm chip coming

11 Mai 2018

According to the information received by popular leakster Evan Blass from a reliable source, Google is going to launch a Pixel-branded smartwatch at its hardware event along with third-gen Pixel smartphones. That implies the watch layout will be closing enough to be placed on the production line within the upcoming few months.

This suggests we'll see the flagship Wear OS watch at the brand's annual event in autumn (usually October). But like Android on a whole, it needs a hero that Google can point to.

Now, as for the watch, we have to hope that Google spent a lot of time thinking about what they want to showcase on it. We don't know for sure but we can keep our fingers crossed.

Not much details about the Pixel Watch is available, other than the rumor that it'll get announced alongside the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, both of which are also largely enigmas at this point.

This is an easy one, however we need the Google Pixel Watch to continue as long as possible. The wearables are receiving more Google Assistant features and Actions, as well as, an enhanced battery saver. Could that change this year as Google, which has provided WearOS to a majority of smartwatches, plans to enter this space?

I'm interested to see how Google approaches this, for a couple of reasons. The leak has put to rest the rumors that the Pixel 3 may not even exist. However, some of the specifications include Bluetooth with apt-X, GPS, and Voice over LTE (VoLTE) support. This move would help the company gain market share and compete directly with the Apple Watch and other smartwatch manufacturers.

All we've got now is just the post on Twitter and Evan Blass's word on which to base our expectations on the possible Google Pixel Watch but this guy is rarely making mistakes when it comes to unannounced devices.
