Although Google showed a sneak peek of its first smartwatch at the I/O conference, the Pixel Watch will only reach users in October.
After some rumors about the integration of an old and obsolete processor, the news arrives that the wearable has a surprise inside: a coprocessor that will help the main chip in managing tasks and energy consumption.
Google may have included a coprocessor in the Pixel Watch for better performance and power efficiency
Although many users expected Google to reveal its first smartwatch at the I/O conference, the wearable was only shown and none of its specifications were confirmed.
For this reason, the expectation is maintained that the first Google smartwatch will arrive equipped with the Exynos 9110 SoC processor, which uses the 10nm manufacturing process, which is not the last component on the market. But today, Google fans rejoiced with new revelations about the device.
All because Google will have included a coprocessor in the smart watch that will help the main chip in task management and power consumption. If the information is confirmed, the research giant will have followed the example of the Snapdragon Wear 4100+ architecture, which also includes a secondary processor.
This option means that the Pixel Watch can provide longer battery life. This is because the main processor will be responsible for handling the heavier tasks, while the coprocessor will be responsible for the lighter workflow. All in all, the battery is saved.
Google Pixel Watch will have more RAM
But the same rumors also tease what we can expect to see in internal storage and RAM. Apparently, the Pixel Watch will have more RAM than Samsung’s Galaxy Watch 4, which has 1.5GB.
The exact amount of RAM Google’s wearable needs to outperform Samsung isn’t clear, but the Pixel Watch is expected to arrive with 1.7 or even 2GB of internal memory.
Additionally, the Pixel Watch’s internal storage will outperform some WearOS devices by providing 32GB of capacity.
Otherwise, Google’s first smartwatch is expected to integrate heart rate monitoring and blood oxygen levels, as well as ECG functionality, as well as including Fitbit technology, as Google owns the brand.
