Google Pixel Watch is more about software and less about hardware
Smart watch will receive a chip that is already four years old
Google originally planned to release its first smartwatch in 2018 with the Pixel 3, but then something went wrong. As a result, Pixel Watch will be released only this year, and the company decided to release it in two parts. At the last Google I / O conference, she limited herself to demonstrating the appearance and general statements about the filling. A full-fledged announcement will be arranged in the fall along with the Google Pixel 7.
The first Pixel Watch smartwatch is also in danger of becoming a poorly guarded secret, so there is a high chance that we will find out about the characteristics earlier. So, for example, details about which chip the smart watch will receive have arrived. Previously, there were rumors that the close friendship between Samsung and Google, which has already culminated in the release of the proprietary Tensor processor and the new version of Wear OS, will lead to the Pixel Watch getting the Exynos W920 chipset. Recall that this processor is installed in the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 and Galaxy Watch 4 Classic.
But Phonearena found out that, unfortunately, the Pixel Watch will receive a chip that was released back in 2018. We are talking about the Exynos 9110, which is manufactured according to the standards of 10-nanometer technology and has already outdated Cortex-A53 cores. Against the background of it, the Exynos W920, created according to the norms of 5-nm technology and with newer Cortex-A55 cores, looks more advantageous.
Everything points to the fact that when creating the Google Pixel Watch, they did not rely on performance. This watch is about software. True, it is still difficult to understand what Google can offer in terms of software, which other companies have not implemented.
