The Google Pixel Watch has been the stuff of folklore for a very long time, however, nothing concrete used to emerge about the product until recently. For the past few months, we’ve been hearing strong rumors about a product being in development and now, renders of the supposed device have leaked online.
The Pixel Watch, it seems, will ship with a bezel-less design, giving full prominence to its circular display. While this may look great from an aesthetic point of view, there’s still some room open for speculation about its durability.
Some crucial features of the Pixel Watch have also been revealed by these leaked images that have come from tipster Jon Prosser’s official YouTube channel, FrontPageTech. He has claimed them to be the “official marketing images” of the product.
One of these images showcases the smartwatch’s fitness interface that looks like it’s powered by Google Fit. Another shows that the device will be able to take incoming calls and show navigation routes as well. The renders even show different colored bands available for the watch.
Meanwhile, another tipster, Max Weinbach has taken to Twitter to reveal a detail about an important internal specification of the device. The Pixel Watch will apparently rely on a custom SoC that will be built by Samsung.
This shouldn’t be much of a surprise since Google recently shifted to manufacturing Pixel smartphones with its own Tensor SoCs inside them. The Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro were the first such products offering flagship-grade performance through the custom-built chipset. And it seems Google will be continuing this trend with the rumored Pixel 6a smartphone, the release of which will supposedly take place sometime next year.
As for the release of the Google Pixel Watch, multiple reports have suggested that it will arrive in early 2022.
