Samsung’s Exynos W920 is a 5nm Chipset That will Power the Upcoming Galaxy Watch 4 Series.

Samsung has announced a new Exynos W920 chipset that will power its upcoming Galaxy Watch 4 smartwatches. 

The  System on a Chip (SoC) is the industry's first 5nm-thick wearable processor and the first upgrade to a Samsung watch processor since the original Samsung watch was released.

For starters, it will only be the third chip capable of supporting the new version of Wear OS 3.0. It's also a huge upgrade over Qualcomm's 28nm Snapdragon Wear 3100 chipset that powers most Wear OS smartwatches today. 

So if you're using a Wear OS watch with an older Qualcomm chip, you should feel a huge improvement in performance.

Samsung claims, according to Android Authority, that it will get a 20% improvement in performance compared to the previous Exynos 9110 chipset found in the Galaxy Watch 3. The graphics performance appears to be ten times better with the Mali-G68 GPU.

The Exynos W920 also has a dedicated low-power Cortex M55 processor that will be solely responsible for handling the Galaxy Watch 4's Always-On Display function. 

Samsung says it will help reduce the screen's power consumption compared to the previous Exynos model.

The Exynos W920 processor in the Galaxy Watch 4 comes with a 4G LTE modem and GNSS for tracking speed, distance, and altitude during outdoor activities.

Overall, it's good news for fans of Wear OS watches, for whom performance was one of their biggest complaints, and Samsung's new processor combined with a new software experience should make the Galaxy Watch 4 a very powerful smartwatch.
