Samsung has announced the Exynos W920, a new processor designed for smartwatches and other wearables.
As per The Verge, the company stated that it’s the world’s first wearable-specific chip to be built on a 5nm process.
The Exynos 920 has two Cortex-A55 cores and a Mali-G68 GPU. For context, Qualcomm’s high-end Snapdragon 888 has four Cortex-A55 cores.
Samsung explicitly says that the Exynos W920
“supports a new unified wearable platform Samsung built jointly with Google, and will be first applied to the upcoming Galaxy Watch model.”
Samsung mentions, the company has been working with Google on new smartwatch software that combines Tizen and Wear OS.
The model is almost certainly the extensively leaked Galaxy Watch 4 series.
We are expecting to see break official cover at Samsung’s Unpacked event today at 7:30 pm.
That should be good news, since performance has long been a problem on Wear OS watches.
The W920 also includes a Cortex-M55 processor that’s dedicated to driving an always-on display, further reducing power consumption.
Samsung is claiming 20 per cent better CPU performance and ten times better GPU performance than its previous wearable chip.
Get ready to unfold with Galaxy Unpacked.
