On October 6, Google will unveil the Pixel Watch and new Pixel 7 smartphones with second-generation chips. The hardware launch event, dubbed “Made by Google,” will feature new products that the company previewed at its I/O developer conference earlier this year.
“Everything is fitting together. On October 6, join us live for MadeByGoogle. Add updates to your calendar and sign up for updates, Google advised in a tweet. Google has confirmed that the second-generation “Tensor G2” chip will power the Pixel 7 series.
Tensor was developed in collaboration with Samsung to improve Exynos-like processors with Google’s machine learning expertise. According to 9to5Google, the “Google Tensor G2” chip is now mentioned on the updated magazine page for the Pixel 7.
The Tensor G2 chip is most likely to appear in the Pixel 7a from next year and a rumored Google foldable device. Tensor G2 will “bring even more helpful, personalized features to photos, videos, security, and speech recognition” on the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro.
The Pixel Watch will have a circular, domed shape and a side button with a “tactile” finish. The watch, made of recycled stainless steel, will run Wear OS 3, which has a “refreshed UI” with improved navigation and intelligent notifications.
It has easily attachable bands that can be customized. The new Wear OS by Google experience and Fitbit’s leading health and fitness tools will be available to you with this watch, the company claims. Google purchased Fitbit for $2.1 billion. Beyond changing watch faces, the Fitbit integration will “imbue throughout” the Pixel Watch experience.
