The Google Pixel Watch would use the chip of the Galaxy Watch of 2018

New information ensures that those from Mountain View would have opted for a Samsung processor from four years ago to give life to their new smart watch.

After a multitude of rumours, last Wednesday Google finally dared to unveil its first smart watch in the form of the Pixel Watch, showing its modern and elegant design, but with which there are still many doubts about certain technical aspects.

At the time of the announcement we knew that the screen would bet on a 1.2-inch AMOLED-panel with a digital crown on the right side to be able to move through the menus and make all kinds of adjustments, but that would also be compatible with Google Pay, Google Assistant and Fitbit sports functions but, apart from that, practically little else.

Now from 9to5google they assure, according to their sources, that the Pixel Watch would be powered by an Exynos processor that originally debuted with the Samsung Galaxy Watch in 2018. If true, it is unknown if this decision was made to lower manufacturing costs or because Google is not looking for a major technological commitment with this new watch.

In this way they point out that the new Pixel Watch would use the exynos 9110a processor that Samsung launched for the first time in August 2018, with which those from Mountain View would be launching a smart watch with a processor released four years ago.

While it had already been rumored that the Pixel Watch would use processors from Samsung, many assumed that it would take advantage of the recently announced Exynos W920 that we found in the Galaxy Watch 4, for example, thus giving it good performance and more pronounced efficiency.

However, if it is true that the new Pixel Watch finally bets on the Exynos 9110, we would be facing a chip manufactured in a 10 nanometer process with two Cortex A53 coresfar from the most recent processors for watches that usually bet on 5nm.

This may be bad news for many users who were waiting for the launch of this Google smartwatch since it would not be using the latest specifications after such a long wait.
