We’ve heard for a while that Samsung will use a new chipset for the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 and Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 Classic, and now we know much more about exactly what this chipset may be capable of.
According to SamMobile, the Galaxy Watch 4 (formerly considered the Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 4) will use an Exynos W920 chipset. It is worth noting that the site does not mention the Galaxy Watch 4 Classic (the successor to the Samsung Galaxy Watch 3), but we assume that it will use the same chipset.
In any case, the Exynos W920 apparently includes a CPU with 1.25 times faster processing time than the Exynos 91
Ramp up RAM
Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 is also said to contain 1.5 GB of RAM, compared to 1 GB found in the Galaxy Watch 3.
So all this sounds like a significant power upgrade, and Samsung’s current smartwatches do not feel particularly lacking as it is (that’s probably why the company felt able to stick with the same chipset for so long).
As if we were going to leak with a pinch of salt, but everything we had heard so far about this new chipset suggested that it would give a big boost, so there is a good chance that this information is accurate.
At this point, it also feels like there is little we do not know about the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 and Watch 4 Classic, as we have seen unofficial renderings, a store listing, specification leaks and more. But between the rumored new chipset and the new Wear OS operating system that these portable devices are known to run, they are worth getting excited about.
We expect Samsung to unveil the Galaxy Watch 4 series on August 11, so it won’t be long before we find out what these laptops are capable of. In the meantime, stay tuned to TechRadar for any leaks and rumors.
