Samsung’s Exynos W920 is a 5nm chipset set to power the Galaxy Watch4 series
A day before its big Galaxy Unpacked event, Samsung announced a new chipset for wearables dubbed Exynos W920. The SoC is set to power the upcoming Galaxy Watch4 series as well as future Samsung wearables to come. It’s built on a 5nm EUV process armed with two ARM Cortex-A55 cores and an ARM Mali-G68 GPU.
Samsung claims a 20% CPU improvement over the preceding Exynos W9110 and a ten-fold graphics boost. The new chip also packs a dedicated Cortex M55 co-processor for handing Always-On Display use.
Connectivity-wise the W920 brings a 4G LTE Cat.4 modem and a Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) for positioning and fitness tracking. Samsung also confirmed the new chipset will support a “new unified wearable platform Samsung built jointly with Google and will be first applied to the upcoming Galaxy Watch model” which is none other than the new Galaxy Watch4 series running One UI Watch based on Wear OS.
