The South Korean multinational electronics company Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Watch 4 series will be powered by an Exynos W920 SoC, which is the firm’s latest chipset for its next-generation of smartwatches.
Samsung further stated that it is the first SoC to use a 5nm EUV manufacturing node. LPDDR4 RAM and embedded multimedia card (eMMC) storage are supported by the Exynos W920 SoC.
It also includes a dedicated low-power display processor, the Cortex-M55, which enables Always-on Display (AoD) with lower power consumption than the prior Exynos SoC.
In terms of CPU performance, the Exynos W920 is said to boost by roughly 20 percent and give ten times the higher graphics performance.
Faster application launches and more interactive eye-catching 3D graphical user interface (GUI)” will be among the benefits of the 5nm chipset. A maximum resolution of 960 x 540 pixels is supported. Fan-Out Panel Level Packaging is also available on the chipset (FO-PLP).
The Exynos W920 from Samsung is a dual-core SoC with two Arm Cortex-A55 cores paired with an Arm Mali-G68 GPU.
Power management IC (PMIC), LPDDR4 RAM, and integrated multimedia card (eMMC) storage are all included in the same package. The Exynos W920 has a built-in 4G LTE Cat.4 modem and GNSS L1 that allows it to track speed, distance, and elevation during outdoor activities.
Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 series will be the first set of wearables to feature the Exynos W920 SoC. Samsung and Google have collaborated on a new unified wearable platform called One UI Watch, which will be supported by the chipset.
The smartwatch versions are slated to be introduced on August 11 at Samsung’s Galaxy Unpacked event. Samsung’s next-generation foldable smartphones, the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3 will also be on display.
