Samsung just before its Galaxy watch 4 unveil has teased its own smartwatch chip, the Exynos W920. This is Samsung’s 5nm processor to power its next generation of wearables, an industry first.
The electronics company boasts it has the smallest form factor of any smartwatch chip. This chip “Exynos W920 offers high performance, efficiency, and LTE connectivity.”
Galaxy watch 4 will sport a qHD (960X540) display, powered with the Exynos W920 chip. The chip has two Arm®Cortex®-A55 cores and an Arm Mali™-G68 GPU that improves CPU performance by 20%.
Samsung says this will enables ten times better graphics performance than the Galaxy watch 3. Harry Cho, vice president of System LSI marketing at Samsung Electronics said:
“Wearables like smartwatches are no longer just a cool gadget to have. They’re now a growing part of our lifestyles to keep you fit, safe, and alert,”
“With the Exynos W920, future wearables will be able to run applications with visually appealing user interfaces and more responsive user experiences while keeping you connected on the go with fast LTE.”
The small processor makes room for a bigger battery, we can expect the Galaxy Watch 4 to have more battery life. Samsung will be using the Google wearable platform for the first time on this smartwatch.
