Qualcomm hasn’t introduced a wearable chipset for smartwatches in over two years. The 12nm node is the foundation of the 2020 introduction of the Snapdragon 4100+. On the other side, Apple’s S7 chipset uses a 7nm technology, while Samsung’s Exynos W920, which is now on the market, uses a 5nm process. It is clear that Qualcomm is falling behind, which has a significant impact on the Android wristwatch market.

However, this is likely to change as Qualcomm has hinted at the arrival of its next Snapdragon wearable chipset. A teaser posted by Qualcomm on social media hinted that a new chipset for smartwatches is about to be released. The name of the upcoming wearable chipset is not specified, though.

According to reports, the Snapdragon 5100 and Snapdragon 5100+ chipsets for wearable devices have already been revealed through leaks. These processors are anticipated to replace the Snapdragon 4100 and Snapdragon 4100+ chips that are already on the market. It’s possible that the future wearable Snapdragon processors will operate more effectively.

Similar to the Exynos W920 processor of Samsung, which is presently on the market. We say so because the Snapdragon 5100 series may be built on a superior 4nm manufacturing than the Exynos W920, which is based on Samsung’s 5nm fabrication. The latest generation of WearOS smartwatches feature the 12nm fabricated Snapdragon 4100+.

Although the 4100+ outperformed the 28nm Snapdragon 3100 series in terms of performance and efficiency, it can’t compete with the Exynos W920. However, compared to the majority of the top competitors now on the market, Qualcomm’s next-generation chip, which is built on the 4nm production process, is anticipated to deliver higher performance and efficiency. Now it’s up to Google to figure out how to adjust WearOS for the new chipset. As of right present, it is unclear when the next Snapdragon wearable chip series will be released. But in the upcoming weeks, we should learn more about the same.
