Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 specs have just been revealed online by a leak that says it could have an even more powerful chipset. The 5nm Exynos W920 is expected to bring better GPU and CPU performance.
Wear OS Smartwatch Hardware
According to Slashgear, quite naturally, smartwatches have fewer choices of hardware compared to their smartphone partners. Wear OS smartwatches, however, have started becoming unpopular for having what was noted as "mediocre hardware" when compared to other platforms.
This is said to be true when it comes to the processors that most vendors are choosing to use as the technologies date back to 2018 or even older. The upcoming Wear OS is going to attempt to break away from that notion but its very first incarnation might already be taking things further.
Qualcom Snapdragon Watch Chips
If the leaks are indeed correct, Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 will then become one of the most powerful smartwatches to date. The choice of processor is reportedly more important on smartwatches due to limited batteries and space. Power efficiency and size also play a major role for wearables but there still aren't that many chipsets to choose from. The upcoming smartwatches, however, could come without a power adapter.
A number of Wear OS smartwatches make use of Qualcomm's previous Snapdragon Wear 3100 but are failing to take advantage of the 12nm Snapdragon Wear 4100+'s more modern features. Despite running the Wear OS, the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 will be skipping that SoC as well and it is probably for the best.
5nm Exynos W920 Performance Boost
SamMobile notes that Samsung's upcoming smartwatches will be making use of a new 5nm Exynos W920 chipset. The much smaller size will also be giving the device more room for other components while also improving the overall performance per watt.
The 5nm Exynos W920 is supposedly going to bring a 1.25x faster CPU as well as a 8.8x better GPU! However, it still remains to be seen how this particular chip will work against the Snapdragon Wear 4100+.
Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 Specs
The Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 will be rolling out with 1.5GB of RAM along with 16GB of storage. This is perhaps, as of the moment, the highest capacities in the whole smartwatch market as of the moment. An FCC filing reveals that the smartwatch could be set to launch on August, 2021.
The upgrades could not have come at a better time with more and more promises of additional apps and other functionalities through the Wear OS and Google Play Store are expected. The leaks reportedly paint quite a pretty picture of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 and the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 Classic.
There will also be a lot of expectations waiting for the company's next line of smartwatches next month and not just when it comes to hardware but also due to the new One UI-styled Wear OS experience itself.
