The Google Pixel Watch 2 is expected to launch later this fall. There have already been some leaks and rumours, which will be supplemented today with an entry in the Google Play Console. The upcoming Google smartwatch is codenamed eos and has a nearly identical design to its predecessor. This includes a round display with a resolution of 384 x 384 pixels and a mechanical crown on the side. The screen is expected to be 1.2 inches diagonal and based on OLED technology.
As expected, Google does without Samsung’s Exynos chipsets and instead relies on Qualcomm’s current Snapdragon W5+ Gen 1 chipset (SW5100) in combination with 2 GB of RAM. The Google Play Console also confirms that the Pixel Watch 2 will launch Android 13, presumably with Wear OS 4 as the interface.
The Pixel Watch 2 is rumored to come with a 306mAh battery. That would be a slightly larger capacity than the 294 mAh cell of the first Pixel Watch. Thanks to the new, energy-saving chipset, the battery life should still be significantly better. The new model will also reportedly ship with Ultra Wideband (UWB) connectivity and new watch face options. The launch is expected to take place alongside the Google Pixel 8 series in early October.
