Google report, on Wednesday, Google officially confirmed that it is making a Google Pixel Watch smartwatch, but the preview version provided is not clear about the specific specifications, because it is still a few months away from the launch. time. It is understood that the Google Pixel Watch is equipped with the Exynos chip, which originally debuted with the Samsung Galaxy Watch in 2018. The Google Pixel Watch uses the Exynos 9110, a Samsung chip first released in August 2018.
The Exynos 9110 chip uses a 10nm process and has two Cortex-A53 cores. This is similar to the Snapdragon Wear 4100+, but the Qualcomm chip is 12nm, which is less efficient. With the introduction of the W920 chip, Samsung says it has “about 20 percent better CPU performance and 10 times faster graphics performance than its predecessor.”
Google is likely to use an older chip since the Pixel Watch project started some time ago. When the early development of the Pixel Watch started (the Exynos 9110 was still new at the time) it was based on Android 9 Pie and later switched to Android 11.
By the time the Exynos W920 hits the market — assuming Samsung is already selling to third parties — a chipset replacement could delay the development and release of Google’s Pixel Watch so much that a replacement of the core components isn’t guaranteed. This is really regrettable.
The Exynos 9110 chip was first used in the original Samsung Galaxy Watch released in Q3 2018. It also appeared on the 2019 Watch Active and Active 2 and the August 2020 Galaxy Watch 3.
Of course, the chipset isn’t everything. Like the Google Pixel 6, its Tensor processor is a chip based on outdated technology compared to the latest Snapdragon products. Equally important is how Google optimizes the hardware. The biggest problem is that this old chip affects battery life. The battery capacity of the Google Pixel Watch is 300mAh. The Pixel Watch will be officially released this fall alongside the Pixel 7 and 7 Pro.
