Samsung is gearing up to launch the next-generation of its Galaxy Watch series of smartwatches, the Galaxy Watch 6. Ahead of its debut, details of the processor that could power the device have been revealed. According to a listing on the Bluetooth SIG website, the Galaxy Watch 6 could be powered by an Exynos W930 chip.
The Exynos W930 is said to be a slightly improved version of the processor found on the current-generation Galaxy Watch 5 and its predecessor, the Galaxy Watch 4. The processor will be used with a compatible RF chip to create a device with support for Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 5.3 connectivity. This contradicts an earlier report that claimed the Galaxy Watch 6 would be powered by an Exynos W980 chip, which was said to be 10 percent faster than the W920 SoC that powered the Galaxy Watch 5 and Galaxy Watch 4 series of smartwatches.
The Galaxy Watch 6 is expected to feature a rotating bezel and its design was teased in renders leaked by a tipster. In addition to the Galaxy Watch 6, Samsung is also expected to launch the Galaxy Watch 6 Classic at the next Samsung Galaxy Unpacked event that will take place in South Korea at the end of July. This event could also see the debut of the purported Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 and the Galaxy Z Flip 5.
The Exynos W930 processor is likely to provide the Galaxy Watch 6 with improved performance and better battery life. This could make the upcoming smartwatch an ideal companion for those who are looking for a reliable and powerful device to track their fitness goals and stay connected on the go.
