We are going to talk about the manufacturer’s smartwatches in this article.

Samsung Exynos W1000, all the information

According to what was published by SAMMobile, this chip has been created using Samsung’s second-generation 3 nm lithography, a process that has been called SF3. It features a five-core CPU:

  • A Cortex-A78 core
  • Quad-core Cortex-A55

Samsung claims that this chip is almost three times faster in application opening times compared to the previous generation Exynos W930. The performance to a core, according to the manufacturer, is 3.4 times faster. In multi-core tasks it is 3.7 times faster than the chips we saw in the Samsung Galaxy Watch 6.

As far as the graphics chip is concerned, the GPU of this Exynos W1000 is a Mali-G68 manufactured by ARM and capable of handling resolutions of up to 640 x 640 pixels. It also has 32GB of internal storage.

Apart from the integrated internal memory, it also has RAM memory cast in the SoC, although the amount of volatile memory that the Koreans’ new wearable will have incorporated is not specified. It is known that it is of the LPDDR5 type.

On the connectivity side, we find Bluetooth LE, compatibility with 4G networks, WiFi, GPS and NFC. According to the information that is handled, the Exynos W1000 will debut within the next Galaxy Watch 7 and 7 Ultra that, we recall, will be presented on July 10 in Paris.
