As anticipation for the Google Pixel Watch 2 upcoming release grows, a recent leak from a purported insider at Google has revealed some exciting upgrades we may look forward to from this highly anticipated Wear OS wristwatch.
Disclaimer: Though unofficial, take this information with a grain of salt. If true, exciting developments could be on the horizon.
Improved Battery Life and Performance
According to rumors, the Google Pixel Watch 2 will have a powerful processor as one of its most significant advancements. The watch will power the cutting-edge Qualcomm Snapdragon W5 Gen 1 CPU instead of its predecessor’s antiquated Samsung Exynos 9110. Along with improved performance, this upgrade promises increased power efficiency, which might result in longer battery life. With the upgraded chipset and a 306mAh battery (up from 294mAh), customers may enjoy longer battery life than the original Pixel Watch’s 24 hours.
Ahead-of-the-Game Hardware and Software
Leaked info suggests the Google Pixel Watch 2 will have UWB, enhancing device tracking and locating. This is consistent with the rumored pursuit by Google of AirTag-like features. UWB enables functions like car unlocking and media transfer to Google Pixel Tablet through advanced device-to-device communication.
Additionally, the display is receiving a much-needed refresh that could increase brightness. The watch’s dimensions will remain 1.2 inches and 384 by 384 pixels, but analysts expect smaller bezels for a more pleasing design.
Software Integration for Wear OS 4
They anticipate including the future Wear OS 4 operating system with the Google Pixel Watch 2. One outstanding aspect of Wear OS 4 is its frictionless updating process and many other enhancements. Users will not need to frequently reboot their devices when updates are made because they can download and install the new Wear OS version while still using the current one.
While these leaks provide an alluring glimpse, we must wait for Google to make official announcements before verifying these enhancements. With these features, Google Pixel Watch 2 could dominate the smartwatch market through advanced tech and improved performance.
