which is long overdue The Google Pixel Watch is finally revealed At this year’s Google I/O conference, though, the company was particularly careful about its specifications. We actually haven’t heard much, apart from the fact that it will be launched as well Next to the Pixel 7 series. Now, despite a new report from 9to5Google It is suggested that it will pack the Exynos 9110, a chipset launched four years ago.
While it’s clearly disappointing that Google isn’t packing the latest Exynos W920 chipset in its first smartwatch, there are potential reasons behind it. The most likely reason is that the Pixel Watch has been in development for a long time, Long, the time. The company was planning this Since the first Google Pixel The smartphone and rumors picked up steam again in 2018 before the launch of the Pixel 3 series.
Given all of that, it’s very likely that this will be developed on older hardware Because It’s technically an old device. Like 9to5Google According to reports, the Pixel Watch has started development on Android 9 Pie. If Google eventually switches to the Exynos W920, it could delay development even more.
But not everything is bad. The Exynos 9110 is built on a 10nm process, packed with Cortex-A53 cores. This means that more More efficient than Qualcomm’s latest offering, and hopefully pairs well with I reported a battery of 300 mAh. For reference, Qualcomm’s latest wearable chip is the Snapdragon Wear 4100 Plus, which was produced using a 12nm process and packing four Cortex-A53 cores.
In fact, the only problem with the Pixel Watch’s case is that it likely won’t be able to compete with the best of Samsung, with the Galaxy Watch 5 series expected to launch sometime before the Pixel Watch. The Galaxy Watch 5 will probably, at least, pack an Exynos W920 which means it will deliver still It beat the Exynos 9110, although perhaps not by much in real-world use.
While it would be nice to have the latest and greatest chipset in Google’s first smartwatch, processors aren’t everything. We learned a lot with Google Pixel 6 Series and how Google Tensor has remained competitive against the current generation of chips thanks to Google’s improvements, even though it is based on the theoretically weaker Exynos chipset. We’ll wait to see if the rumors are true, and if so, what Google can achieve with an older chip.
