The Galaxy Watch is finally getting a processor upgrade

According to a report by SamMobile, the Samsung Galaxy Watch 6 will receive a new processor – the Exynos W980.

This one is about 10 percent more quickly than the Exynos W920, which is currently in the Galaxy Watch 4 and 5.

The new processor is said to be manufactured using Samsung’s new 5 nm process, which not only increases performance but should also ensure better energy efficiency.

The current top model from Samsung, the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro, lasts about three days with “normal” use. We can be curious if the Galaxy Watch 6 will have more endurance.

Physical rotating ring to return

The physically rotating ring of Samsung smartwatches was once the trademark for the Korean manufacturer’s watches.

Since the Galaxy Watch 4, Samsung has used a digital touch version of the ring that simulates a rotating wheel. According to SamMobile, the Galaxy Watch 6 will appear in two different variants: Galaxy Watch 6 Classic and Galaxy Watch 6.

As the Classic name suggests, this version will bring back the physical rotating bezel from older Galaxy Watches. The non-classic version, on the other hand, will probably rely on a digital ring.

The new watches are set to be launched alongside the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5. You can find out more about the two folding smartphones here:
