The existence of the Pixel Watch was finally confirmed at the Google I/O 2022. Google was also generous enough to provide a release date of the device but at that time, pretty much everything about the device was leaked. All the key details like; the battery capacity, chipset, connectivity, and more. However, ahead of the Pixel Watch’s official release, a few more details have surfaced.
On the FCC website, three models of the Pixel Watch have been spotted, along with a few new details about the smartwatch. According to the said listing, there are three models; GQF4C, GBZ4S, and GWT9R. The GQF4C model offers Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity, while the latter models offer LTE support.
The listing also reveals that the GBZ4S supports three LTE bands; bands 5, 7, and 26. While the GWT9R supports ten bands: LTE Bands 2, 4, 5, 12, 13, 17, 25, 26, 66, and 71.
The listing has offered another piece of information. The Pixel Watch will sport a USB-C charging cable. This will be a magnetic charging puck that is similar to what we have seen on the Galaxy Watch 4 and other recent smartwatches. But the new part is that the device will have a USB-C port. So, in theory, the customers will be able to just connect the Pixel Watch to their smartphone and charge the watch. This is really interesting.
The listing further revealed that the Pixel Watch will be manufactured by Taiwan’s Compal Electronics. This is the same company that makes the Apple Watch.
Lastly, the specs of the Pixel Watch. Reportedly, the new smartwatch from Google will be powered by the Exynos 9110 dual-core processor and a Cortex M33 co-processor. The device will reportedly have 1.5GB of memory and 32GB of internal storage. It will also have a lot of new features, including Google Assistant, Google Pay, and the new and improved Wear OS. The Pixel Watch is expected to launch alongside the Pixel 7 series of flagship phones in October this year.
