An image of what is likely to be the next-generation Pebble smartwatch has been found on the company’s servers, ahead of its official unveiling on Tuesday.
Though specific details weren’t shared in the leak, it can be gathered the next-generation Pebble has a color screen and larger bezels, along with protruding buttons that were found on the original version.
It was reported last week the new Pebble will feature a slimmer profile, which can’t exactly be gleaned from the leaked image on Monday. Furthermore, the device is said to have a Cortex M4 processor and a 6-axis gyroscope running inside.
Pebble hopes to battle Apple, Google and others by implementing a new type of interaction and a whole new style of hardware and software, Pebble CEO Eric Migicovsky said earlier this year.
“You’ll actually interact with the watch in a completely different way than you do today,” Migicovsky said. He wouldn’t specify what this new type of watch metaphor might be other than saying he didn’t believe the app store model is the right approach to smartwatch customization and extensibility.
“We’ve found a new framework to use as an interaction model on the watch,” he added. “It doesn’t look like what we have today, and it doesn’t look like what’s on your smartphone.”
We’ll be looking out for confirmed details on Tuesday. If Monday’s leak does indeed turn true, what do you think of the new Pebble?
