Samsung Launches Exynos W1000 Wearable Processor Ahead of Galaxy Unpacked Event

Samsung has officially introduced its first 3nm chip, the Exynos W1000, designed to revolutionize wearable technology. Likely to power the upcoming Galaxy Watch 7 and Galaxy Watch Ultra, this advanced processor boasts impressive performance and efficiency improvements, promising to enhance users’ daily routines and productivity.

Exynos W1000 CPU cores and GPU

The Exynos W1000 utilizes Samsung Foundry’s second-generation 3nm process, showcasing a powerful CPU architecture with five cores: one Cortex-A78 performance core and four Cortex-A55 efficiency cores.

This configuration allows for a 2.7x increase in app launch speeds and significantly smoother multitasking compared to its predecessor, the Exynos W930. Single-core and multi-core performances have also been boosted by 3.4x and 3.7x, respectively.

The processor integrates ARM’s Mali-G68 MP2 GPU, supporting screen resolutions up to 640 x 640 pixels. It also includes 32GB of internal storage, leveraging advanced technologies such as fan-out panel-level packaging (FOPLP) for improved power efficiency and heat dissipation.

Additionally, embedded package-on-package (ePOP) technology combines RAM and storage on the same chip, while system-in-package (SiP) technology integrates the power management integrated chip (PMIC) within the same package.

Enhanced Display and Connectivity

The Exynos W1000 features a 2.5D Always-on Display (AOD) engine, offering detailed and vibrant watch faces with higher clarity. The chip’s connectivity suite includes 4G LTE, Bluetooth LE, Wi-Fi b/g/n, GPS, and NFC, ensuring seamless communication and data transfer.

Improved Battery Life

Samsung’s 3nm process and the inclusion of LPDDR5 memory contribute to the Exynos W1000’s efficient low-power design. This advancement allows the processor to deliver premium performance while extending the battery life of smartwatches.

Reports suggest that devices powered by the Exynos W1000, such as the anticipated Galaxy Watch 7 and Galaxy Watch Ultra, could achieve 2-3 days of usage on a single charge.

Stay tuned for more updates as we await the release of the Galaxy Watch 7 and Galaxy Watch Ultra, at the Galaxy Unpacked Event on July 10.
