Ahead of the Galaxy Unpacked event on August 11, Samsung has officially unveiled the new Exynos W920 chipset. It is specially designed for wearable devices. The chipset will likely be used with Wear OS 3.0.
The Samsung Exynos W920 is the successor to the Exynos 9110 that the South Korean IT giant unveiled about three years ago along with the original Galaxy Watch. The new chip will work in the upcoming Galaxy Watch 4 and Watch 4 Classic.
The variant is manufactured using Samsung’s latest 5nm EUV lithography process. The W920 received two ARM Cortex-A55 cores and a Mali-G68 GPU. Samsung claims the new chipset is about 20% faster than the Exynos 9110 in the CPU benchmark. Plus, it offers 10x the graphics performance.
Gizmochina says the chipset can handle displays up to 960×540 pixels. … Additionally, there is a low-power Cortex-M55 core, which is responsible for the “Always-on Display” function. There is an integrated 4G modem, a global satellite navigation system, a Wi-Fi b / g / n module and Bluetooth 5.0.
