The Pixel Watch might already be outdated, reportedly using a 4-year-old processor

What you need to know

  • A report from 9to5Google claims the Pixel Watch is powered by a four-year-old processor.
  • The chipset in question was released in 2018, alongside the original Galaxy Watch.
  • There’s still no indication as to what this means for compatibility with currently available Wear OS smartwatches.

We knew there had to be a catch with the Pixel Watch. Google’s unveiling of its first in-house built smartwatch made waves following leaks we’ve provided and it made an appearance during the Google I/O 2022 keynote.

Leave it to leaks to pour some rain on the parade, as 9to5Google is reporting that the Pixel Watch won’t be using a custom-designed Tensor SoC or even Samsung’s latest Exynos W920 processor. Instead, the source states that the Pixel Watch is powered by Samsung’s Exynos 9110 chipset, which first debuted in 2018 alongside the original Galaxy Watch.
