Samsung has confirmed how the new Galaxy Watch 4 will be powered.
The upcoming Galaxy Watch 4 series will be powered by the new Samsung Exynos W920, a new 5nm wearable processor with an integrated LTE modem. The Galaxy Watch series 4 is anticipated to be released at Galaxy Unpacked 2021.
The Exynos W920 has two Arm Cortex-A55 cores for efficient, high-performing processing, and an Arm Mali-G68 GPU that has improved CPU performance by around 20%. It has 10 times better graphics performance than its predecessor. This overall improvement in performance means that the Exynos W920 can launch applications faster, with a more vibrant 3D graphical user interface (GUI) on a device’s qHD (960×540) display.
The Exynos W920 comes in the smallest package available in the wearable market, with Fan-Out Panel Level Packaging (FO-PLP). The technology incorporates the Exynos W920, power management IC (PMIC), LPDDR4 and embedded multimedia card (eMMC) in the same package using System-in-Package-embedded Package on Package (SiP-ePoP) configuration.
As opposed to powering up the main CPU for Always-on-display (AOD), the W920 activates a dedicated low-power display processor, the Cortex-M55, which reduces display power consumption under AOD mode compared to its previous Exynos model. The Exynos W920 is embedded with a 4G LTE Cat.4 modem as well as a Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) L1 for tracking speed, distance and elevation during outdoor activities. The Exynos W920 supports a new unified wearable platform Samsung built with Google. It will be first applied to the next Galaxy Watch model.
Galaxy Unpacked 2021 Leaked information
Some of the new products and product prices have been leaked ahead of Galaxy Unpacked 2021, though the details have not been confirmed by Samsung. Further leaks have suggested that the Z Flip 3 will have a 1.9-inch outer screen with a 6.7-inch internal flexible display, the latter of which will run at 120Hz and have dual 12-megapixel rear cameras and a 10-megapixel selfie shooter.
Samsung has already announced its new Galaxy Watch with the One UI Watch, which is co-engineered with Google, but numerous renders of the Galaxy watch 4 have also been leaked.
It has also been suggested that Samsung fans may witness the launch of a new generation of Galaxy Buds, which are reported to be similar to the first generation, but with a range of colours to choose from. Though it may appear that everything has already been revealed or leaked, we might expect Samsung to unveil a product not yet leaked, in a similar launch nature to that of Apple launch events.
