After starting its own lineup of smartphones, it was already rumored that Google is in the process of building two Android wearable smartwatches. Now, a recent leak claimed that these smartwatches would be released with Android Wear 2.0 in the first quarter of 2017.
According to earlier leaks, these Google Assistant-enabled smartwatches are code-named “Angelfish” and “Swordfish”. Though these rumors are floating around the internet for long but there isn’t any confirmation yet.
The new leak comes from a popular leakster, Evan Blass. Also known as ‘evleaks”, Blass tweeted that these smartwatches will be released in Q1, 2017. He also included the rendered images of the wearables which Android Police came up with in earlier this year.
Earlier this year in the month of May, Google revealed the details of Android Wear 2.0 at Google I/O Conference. The search giant had also released three developer previews since then. The Android Wear 2.0 has new features such as apps installation and sync on the watch itself, without the need of any smartphone. It is important to know that Android Wear works with both Android and iOS devices. Earlier, the launch date of Android Wear 2.0 was supposed to be in last quarter of 2016 but was later postponed to early 2017.
Google has neither accepted nor denied news of Google branded smartwatches. However, it is very well possible for Google to make such devices looking at the Pixel smartphones. With these smartphones, Google Home and Google Wi-Fi, the company had already opened it own hardware division which gives us just another reason to believe in its own branded smartwatches.
