Another Google Pixel Watch leak points to a launch in the very near future

We’ve been waiting a very long time for the Google Pixel Watch to debut, and we’re still waiting – but according to the latest smartwatch leak, that wait may finally be coming to an end.

According to a well-respected (and often accurate) leaker Evan Blass, it “won’t be long” before we see the laptop get its official unveiling by Google. However, Blass provides no further indication in terms of timeline.

The screenshot shared by Blass appears to be from some sort of online manual and mentions the Pixel Rohan. If, like us, you’ve patiently waited for years of Pixel Watch leaks, you’ll know that Rohan is the rumored codename for the device.

See you in May

With Google IO 2022 Now announced and scheduled for May 11, the Developer Conference could be the perfect opportunity for Google to unveil its flagship smartwatch and show us what those years of development have come to.

Indeed, tipster Jon Prosser also suggested that the Pixel Watch could be teased at the IO event – ​​although Prosser added that we might not see the device go on sale until the end of the month. year while Google tries to ramp up production.

As for the onboard software, the screenshot shared in the latest leak mentions Wear OS 3.1. Since Wear OS 3.2 is already out, we’re hoping Google’s wearable is running the latest software when it finally appears.


Analysis: expectations are high

As we mentioned above, the Pixel Watch is one of the most anticipated devices of recent years by Google fans. With the Pixel series now back on track with the well-received Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro – in terms of reviews if not sales – the time seems ripe for more Pixel hardware to appear.

It’s not yet known exactly what features the smartwatch will integrate, but we should hear a lot more from Google IO. The event is used to talk about Google’s software products and showcase new upgrades, and Wear OS is likely to appear.

When it does appear, the Pixel Watch will have plenty of competition from the likes of Samsung. It’s possible that Google will unveil a device that focuses on being affordable rather than the most feature-rich wearable.

If Google is serious about Pixel phones that challenge what Apple and Samsung have to offer, then it really needs a first-class smartwatch to go along with it. We hope the long lead time we’ve had until the Pixel Watch launch means it’s going to be an impressive device when it does appear.
