Qualcomm's upcoming Snapdragon Wear 5100 may not be the much-anticipated Wear 4100 upgrade, but all the hints so far are pointing to improved power efficiency and a more compact chip size, both of which welcome the good improvements.
Last month, Wear OS fans at XDA Developers saw the company's upcoming chipset in the code below. Codename for Monaco. At the time, it was hoping to be able to use Arm's Cortex-A73 cores just like the Snapdragon 662 and 460 mobile platforms.
However, a new report from WinFuture shows something else - SW5100 chipset prototypes use cores similar to the Arm Cortex-A53 with Snapdragon Wear 4100+. In contrast, the new Samsung Exynos W920 chipset, which powers the Galaxy Watch4 has up to 20% faster Cortex-A55 cores, and not much is known about the GPU, so there is still hope that it will look The Wear 5100 chipset is more than half the size. Qualcomm is said to be testing several Wear 5100 configurations, some with 2GB of LPDDR4X RAM or 8 or 16GB of eMMC, and upgrading to LPDDR4X, in terms of performance and productivity, however, most productivity is achieved by upgrading the AON processor To always offer functionality and some health and fitness tracking capabilities. p>
It is worth noting that most of the Exynos W920 optimizes the energy efficiency of production on the 5 nm process node. We don't know exactly which process node Qualcomm is using in the Snapdragon Wear 5100, but the company is in talks with Samsung and SMIC China to ensure production capacity of the new chips.
