Google fans have been waiting for the manufacturer’s first smartwatch for several years now, and its launch could be just around the corner. It has already been spotted before the announcement on the Google site.
The first information about the Pixel Watch emerged about a year ago, giving us our first look at Google’s first smartwatch. At the time, we expected the gadget to launch in late 2021 alongside the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro.
However, Google didn’t finally reveal the Pixel Watch last October, and we’ve been eagerly awaiting the watch’s arrival ever since. Google would have decided several times to postpone the launch of its connected watch, but the wait may soon be over.
As leaker Evan Blass has just revealed on Twitter. In fact, he posted a screenshot of what appears to be an “interactive tutorial” that would show people how to use the features of the Pixel Watch. The image does not show the watch, although Google has unfortunately already revealed the design itself, but presents a drop-down menu on which we can read “Wear OS 3.1”, one of the versions of the operating system of the American giant . This benchmark is quite amazing, since the latest version of Wear OS available is version 3.2.
The launch of the Pixel Watch is imminent
According to information from Evan Blass, this leak confirms that the launch of the Pixel Watch, for now known by its code name “Pixel Rohan”, is fast approaching. According to previous leaks, the Pixel Watch could be unveiled as early as May 2022 on the occasion of the annual Google I/O conference. Google could also take advantage of this conference to announce its new affordable smartphone, the Pixel 6a.
In the meantime, we know that the watch could carry 32 GB of storage. No Wear OS smartwatch comes with such storage. Samsung’s Galaxy Watch 4 is currently the best in this area with its 16 GB of storage. Pixel Watch users will therefore be able to install a very large number of applications without worrying about their storage.
