Samsung has a habit of teasing its upcoming products without actually teasing them. The company announces some of the features and technologies used that will be present in its next launch. Unpacked 2021 is going to happen soon. And Samsung has revealed some details about the Galaxy Watch 4 that will feature in the event.
Some leaks suggested that Galaxy Watch 4 will feature a new Exynos W920 chipset but now the company has officially confirmed it. The chipset is the industry’s first processor with an integrated LTE modem built using a 5nm EUV process node, as claimed by Samsung. It has two Cortex-A55 CPU cores, power management, LPDDR4 RAM, and eMMC storage in a compact package and allows manufacturers to demarcate more space for batteries.
The new Exynos W920 provides a performance upgrade and has a Mali-G68 GPU that enhances smartwatches to use more sophisticated GUIs and supports a resolution of up to 960×540. It also has an embedded 4G LTE Cat.4 modem for wireless communication along with GNSS L1 for positional tracking. the low-power Cortex-M55 will act as a display processor. It will help features like Always-on Display or AOD for showing time and notifications without waking the entire smartwatch. Also because of the more space for batteries, it will have longer battery life.
The chip will power the “new unified wearable platform Samsung built jointly with Google,” as confirmed by the company. It is definitely nothing else than the next Galaxy Watch series coming on August 11th.
