The Galaxy Watch 4 series has been confirmed multiple times. More leaked information is expected to emerge, but at this point, we probably know everything there is to know about new smartwatches. Two variants will be introduced: the Galaxy Watch 4 and the Galaxy Watch 4 Classic. It is also believed that a Galaxy Watch 4 Active will be released. Earlier this week, we saw a video from Samsung showing the Galaxy Watch 4 Classic. The image aligns with what we have already seen in recent months.
The Galaxy Watch 4 that will be unveiled next month at Galaxy Unpacked on August 11 will run on Exynos W920. It is a new chip designed for portable devices.
The new Exynos SoC for the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 follows the Exynos 9110 chipset. For the past two years, Samsung has used that particular processor. We can find them used in Galaxy Watch 3, Galaxy Watch Active 2 and Galaxy Watch Active.
It’s about time Samsung made use of a new chip. This would mean that the upcoming Galaxy Watch models will be faster and more powerful than ever, especially since they will now run on WearOS as well. The latter is an updated version that integrates Samsung’s own Tizen, so it should be more interesting.
The Exynos W920 chipset offers a faster CPU (by 1.25x) plus a smoother graphics performance by 8.8x. The smartwatch also runs on 1.5GB of RAM. As to other specs, the Galaxy Watch 4 will come with 16GB of onboard storage. That’s not enough, but for smartwatches, it’s already a lot. You can download more apps on the watch as the storage is double that of previous models.
With WearOS, the next-generation Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 will also have more apps available for other smartwatches. The larger the storage, the more applications you can install. The more applications, the more fun you can have with your portable device.
