The tipster Evan Blass (@evleaks) is probably the first to point that out. Google will release its own Pixel Smartwatch in the fall. It was followed by media reports with more details on the pixel smartwatches.
Google brings not one, but three smartwatches
State of the things is that the company is working on three different smartwatch models. Internally, these are codenamed “Ling”, “Triton” and “Sardine”. They have already passed the first production stage. It will now be examined whether the existing hardware design is suitable for mass production.
New processor from Qualcomm
The smartwatches are therefore powered by Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon Wear 3100 chip. It is ultimately a variant of the Snapdragon 212, which was used in many low-priced Android smartphones and already works as Snapdragon Wear 2100 in current Wear OS smartwatches.
It is a quad-core processor based on ARM’s Cortex-A7 architecture. As an GPU, therefore, an Adreno 304 is used. If the rumors are true, the SoC will be manufactured using the 28-nanometer process. Perhaps a new energy management chip is part of the SoC. Above all, this should make it easier to interact with the Google Assistant. Users would probably not need to get the watch from standby mode to command the voice assistant
