STATES CHRONICLE – A recent unofficial leak in the world of Android has many users standing at the edge of their seats in anticipation. The leak states that Google is researching and developing their very own brand of Android Wear smartwatches.
Presently, Google has, of course, denied to make any statement whatsoever in regards to any of the leaked information about the potential future Android smartwatches. Nevertheless, the information made available is entirely plausible.
The code-names for the smartwatches are Angelfish and Swordfish. They will have Google Assistant integration. Both Angelfish and Swordfish are believed to be Nexus-branded. Angelfish will feature a larger size with additional tech.
Swordfish is seen as the potential smaller and more financially accessible watch, with a dial diameter of 42mm. The leak also stated that it would come with a built-in heart rate monitor.
Angelfish will have a dial diameter of 43.5mm. Apart from the built-in heart rate monitor, it will come with GPS and LTE.
Considering both watches will come with heart rate monitors, there is a high probability that Google Fit or its successor will be already installed on the smartwatches. Google Fit features will be displayed and available to users without having to connect to a smart handheld device.
Finally, the leak also included several pieces of information and data which indicated that the Google team is working on new watch faces. With in-house designed Android Wear smartwatches, information display and app access can be greatly improved.
What is Google making apart from rumored Android Wear smartwatches?
Since the beginning of June, rumors, speculations, information leaks, and even official news around Android have been more frequent and all pointing towards one specific endgame – a stand-alone series of Google smart devices.
Hardware manufacturers having increased their efforts to develop their operating systems. The ones who admitted to any rumors stated it was just a contingency measure.
Meanwhile, there is talk and proof that a Google Phone is in the works and specialists believe this product could even give Apple a run for its money.
With hardware manufacturers developing their software and with software manufacturers making their hardware, the world is quickly approaching the era where the difference between the two will not matter.
With a Google Phone and now with the Android Wear smartwatches possibly in development, how big of an impact will the company have on the handheld and smart device market?
