Samsung Electronics officially announced the new processor Exynos W920 for smart watches and smart wearable devices, which is the first processor for smart wearable devices manufactured with 5 nanometer technology, which helps to obtain better performance with greater energy efficiency, a processor that may provide Samsung has its new smart watch Galaxy Watch 4 scheduled to be announced during the Unpacked conference this week.
Samsung said that wearable devices such as smart wristwatches are now part of our lifestyle to maintain fitness and health, and that with the new Exynos W920 processor, users of wearable devices such as smart watches and fitness bracelets will be able to run applications faster, while supporting Internet connectivity. On the go over 4G LTE networks.
Samsung's new W920 processor delivers 10 times better graphics processing performance
The new Samsung Exynos W920 processor contains two Arm Cortex-A55 cores to provide high performance and greater energy efficiency, and it also includes a Mali-G68 GPU, which Samsung says provides 20% better performance for users of smart watches and wearable devices compared to With the previous generation and 10 times better performance in graphics processing, which enables faster application opening and support for 3D graphic interfaces on screens with a resolution of up to 960 x 540 pixels.
The Samsung Exynos W920 processor is distinguished in that it is available in a smaller size compared to any other processor now available for wearable devices, and it also comes with a power management circuit, LPDDR4 random access memory and eMMC storage space, which Samsung says provides manufacturers to put larger batteries in smart watches, The processor also features a 4G modem and GNSS support for tracking speed, distance and altitude during outdoor activities.
Special processor in low power consumption mode
The new Samsung W920 processor for smart wearable devices also includes an independent processor dedicated to working in the low-power operating mode of the screen, which gives the user greater benefit from the Always-on-Display (AOD) feature, especially in smart watches, while preserving the battery for as long as possible. This gives the user a preview of the time, notifications and missed calls without having to press any button or turn on the screen.
Samsung had cooperated with Google to take advantage of the Tizen system for its smart watches (such as the Galaxy Watch 3 ) to create a unified system and a better user experience, while providing the system with more updates to Google's favorite applications, which Google said provides the user with the strengths of both systems, so that Wear provides the user with faster performance, longer battery life, and more applications.
