The Apple Watch and Samsung Galaxy Watch have fixed release dates throughout the year, while Google typically updates Fitbit watches every two years. According to an industry source, the Californians are also planning an annual update cycle for the Google Pixel Watch in the future. The new model will likely be launched later this year alongside the Google Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro as the Pixel Watch 2.
So far, however, there are hardly any details about the Google Pixel Watch 2. Some speculate that the design of the cover glass will probably not change drastically. A larger display and smaller bezels would be conceivable, as is the case everywhere in the world of mobile devices. The new Qualcomm Snapdragon W5+ platform could very well take over the drive. Thanks to a 4 Nm manufacturing process, the Snapdragon W5 offers more performance with higher energy efficiency at the same time.
Google Pixel 7a on Geekbench
The next hardware event of the search engine company will take place at the Google I/O on May 10th. With a bit of luck, we’ll see the first teasers and information about the Google Pixel Watch 2 there. The stars of the event will be the Pixel Fold and the upcoming entry-level Google Pixel 7a though, which has just completed a Geekbench test run. Spotted codenamed “Lynx,” the Pixel 7a achieved a single-core score of 1,380 points and a multi-core score of 3,071 points. The test also confirms that the 7a has a Google Tensor G2 chipset under the hood alongside 8GB of RAM.
Unsurprisingly, Android 13 was used as the operating system. The Google Pixel 7a is expected to be based on a 6.1-inch OLED display with FHD+ resolution and a 90Hz refresh rate. The 64-megapixel main camera joins a 13-megapixel ultrawide, while the front camera is also 13-megapixels. 18 watts should arrive in the Pixel 7a via wired charging. And there is also wireless charging for the first time in the A series.
