The Google Pixel Watch 2 is expected to launch as the successor to the Google Pixel Watch that was released in October 2022. The first Pixel Watch model features a 1.2-inch AMOLED touch display protected by 3D Corning Gorilla Glass 5 and an Exynos 9110 SoC. The watch also claims up to 24 hours of battery life. However, the upcoming Pixel Watch 2 is expected to include an improved SoC and battery. There are several rumors surrounding this so-called smartwatch. The wearable has reportedly surfaced on Google Play Console, where some key specifications are listed.
9 to 5 Google Report The alleged Pixel Watch 2 recently appeared on Google Play Console. The listing reveals some key details of the smart wearable, including processor, display and software specifications. The report claims that the watch is likely to be powered by a Qualcomm SW5100 SoC, which claims to be the Snapdragon W5 chipset, not the W5+ variant. It’s also expected to retain the 2GB of RAM from the previous model.
The Snapdragon W5 chip will reportedly be built on the same Samsung 4nm processor as nearly all 2021 and 2022 smartphone chips, offering a massive boost in efficiency over previous chips. It’s likely to support low-power states like deep sleep and hibernation, which should extend the Pixel Watch 2’s battery life.
According to the listing, the Pixel Watch 2 is said to come with Android 13-based Wear OS 4. The report adds that the wearable will also support Wear OS 4’s new “Backup” feature. Google will reportedly launch a smartwatch with a 1.2-inch circular OLED display and feature a Samsung panel instead of a BOE display. Resolution is expected to be 384×384 pixels, with a pixel density of 320ppi.
The upcoming smartwatch will reportedly include ultra-wideband (UWB) connectivity options, in addition to Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and NFC. The Pixel Watch 2 is a 4 percent improvement over its predecessor, with a slightly larger 306mAh battery, compared to a rated 294mAh battery for the Pixel Watch 2022 model, which claims up to 24 hours of battery life.
