After six months of waiting, the first Moboi watch under Wear OS 3 could very well arrive very soon. According to the site droid life, the TicWatch Pro 5 would in fact have been listed by the FCC, the US authority in charge of regulating communications. What to learn by passing new information about it.

As the specialized site indicates, the FCC, which will certify certain electronic devices sold on the other side of the Atlantic, has indeed published a page on a Mobvoi product. If the name of TicWatch Pro 5 does not appear on the US authority site, all clues point to the fact that it is indeed this connected watch. The term “Smart watchit is in fact mentioned there, as is the model number WH12088. As a reminder, the TicWatch Pro 3, released in 2020, benefited from the model number WH12018. For its part, the TicWatch E3, which dates from 2021, was entitled to the model number WH12068.

A bigger battery than the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro

The FCC documentation also points out some features of the smartwatch. We learn that it will benefit from Wi-Fi connectivity, Bluetooth 5.2, NFC and a GPS chip. The watch will also have dimensions of 50.1 mm wide -crown included-, 47.8 mm long -without horns- and 12.4 mm thick. This thickness could be explained by the 611 mAh battery integrated by Mobvoi. This is a significant capacity for a connected watch, which can be compared with the 294 mAh of the Google Pixel Watch, the 284 or 410 mAh (depending on the format) of the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 or the 590 mAh of the Samsung Galaxy Watch. 5 Pro, three watches equipped with the same Wear OS 3 system. This is enough to predict a finally correct autonomy for a watch equipped with Google’s operating system, which could reach two days of use.

As a reminder, the TicWatch Pro 5 should also be the first connected watch on the market to incorporate Qualcomm’s Snapdragon W5+ chip, a chip that is not only about performance, but above all about energy efficiency thanks to 4nm engraving. Originally scheduled for fall 2022, the clock was pushed back to an unknown date. However, if Mobvoi is now at the FCC certification stage, it looks like the TicWatch Pro 5 will be announced in the coming weeks with a commercialization before the end of spring at the latest.
