One of the spiciest news the internet currently having is that Google will now bring its own smartwatches. And, while Evan Blass has hinted the launch of the smartwatch along with 3rd-gen Pixel smartphones, another prolific tipster Roland Quandt is going a step ahead and hinting at not one but 3 Pixel-branded smartwatches.
These devices, of course, use Google’s Wear OS, based on the new wearable platform from Qualcomm and should apparently be offered in several variants.
Quandt via its blog has given more details on these probable smartwatches from Google. Quandt cites its sources and mentions that there three models. But, it’s not clear how these three watches are different to each other. They could vary in sizes or variants with or without LTE or completely different devices. However, it’s reported that Google, Qualcomm, and their hardware partners have been working on this project for more than a year and it has received many delays.
According to the report, the code names of a total of three smartwatches are mentioned in connection with Google's plans - "Ling", "Triton" and "Sardine". And, these are typically Google-like names of sea creatures or fish species in German. The report further mentions that the development of these watches is still going on but they have reached the second level of design verification.
All these smartwatches from Google are expected to be powered by Snapdragon 3100 processor. One of the capabilities of Snapdragon 3100 platform will allow the smartwatches to take voice commands at any time.
Quandt’s report on Pixel-branded smartwatches reinforces the tip came from Evan Blass. That’s a massive lead the tech world has received and we may hear more about them in coming days.
