In contrast to Apple, Google “pre-leaks” information about its upcoming products by posting brief videos about them on social media sites like Twitter and YouTube.

These short clips serve as teasers and an early warning system for leakers. If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em” appears to be Google’s strategy. Both the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro, we know will have a newer version of Google’s Tensor processing chip.

This is the custom Google processor designed to work with the company’s artificial intelligence infrastructure. It’s also likely that Google will introduce new displays, improved camera hardware and computational photography advancements.

Google’s Pixel Watch is an anticipated wearable device. The search giant is finally giving Android fans its vision of what a wearable should be after years of letting manufacturers like Samsung, Fossil and even Michael Kors take the lead on Android wearable development.

Pixel Watch in contrast to Apple Watch will feature a round face. And the Pixel Watch’s edges will be rounded unlike the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5. Since Google now owns FitBit useful fitness integrations are to be expected.

The Pixel Watch is still shrouded in mystery, however. It is speculated to run on the 2018-era Samsung Exynos 9110 processor and has 1.5GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. Not only do we not have a price but Google’s senior vice president of devices and services, Rick Osterloh has indicated that it will be priced at the high end. The cellular version, according to rumors will cost $399.
