- Images of what could be a prototype Google Pixel Watch have been posted online.
- The device, which was reportedly left behind in a US restaurant, looks a lot like previously leaked renders of the Pixel Watch.
- The wearable device is rumored to make its first appearance at Google I/O in May 2022.
In an incident that seems a bit similar to the iPhone 4 prototype leak more than 10 years ago, android hub has posted images of what appears to be a prototype Google Pixel Watch. The photos come from an anonymous source, who claimed to have found the device in a restaurant somewhere in the US.
The device appears to look very similar to previously leaked renders of the reported Pixel Watch. According to the anonymous source, the wearable device also came with a box that said the device was for “internal development and testing” only. He also said the “brands and packaging are not final.” That means the final product might have some differences compared to this reported prototype.
Photos of the black smartwatch appear to show at least one button next to the crown. The source said the back of the watch “looks metallic but feels like it’s covered in glass.” The person who left this prototype also left behind a blue watch strap, which looks like it connects directly to the watch case.
Apparently, there was no charger left with this prototype, although the Pixel Watch will likely have a charging plate on the back.
Earlier this week, Google filed for a trademark filing for a “Pixel Watch,” which, until the leak of this image, was the strongest evidence yet that the device was on the way. Another report claimed that based on a code from Wear OS, the watch could have a Samsung Exynos chipset inside. Google may officially announce the watch as part of its annual I/O 2022 developer conference, which starts on May 11.
