A “reliable source” claims that Google is planning to launch a wearable tech under its Pixel product line.
Google is apparently planning to expand its Pixel product line with not one, but three new smartwatches. And fans wouldn’t have to wait too long as it could be available later this year.
The news comes after well-known online leakster Evan Blass, Tweeted about the Pixel watch. Apparently, his “high-confidence” source claims that this will be part of its fall hardware event. The watch will debut alongside the Pixel 3, Pixel 3 XL and second-generation Pixel Buds.
His information also coincides with a German tech blog‘s report about Google’s wearables. However, they claim that the company actually has three smartwatches lined up with codenames Ling, Triton and Sardine. All three will reportedly run on a new Qualcomm processor that conserves battery life. It will actually allow the device to listen to voice commands without leaving the standby mode.
If this information checks out, it will be Google’s first flagship smartwatch that they actually have a say on. The first Android Wear watches were from Samsung and LG, both of which are obviously independent from Google.
The existing Pixel phones has made the Google Assistant quite an integral part of its system. If the Pixel watch (or watches?) happens, we can probably expect a similar setup. John Legend anyone?
