Qualcomm teases its next-gen Snapdragon Wear chipset

by on13 July 2022

The Snapdragon Wear 5100/5100+ is coming soon

Qualcomm took to Twitter to tease its next-gen Snapdragon Wear chipset, which is a great move since it has been over two years since the 12nm Snapdragon Wear 4100 and 4100+ were announced.

Back in 2020, Qualcomm updated its Snapdragon Wear from 3100 to 4100/4100+, made on a 12nm manufacturing process and featuring a co-processor, bringing both performance and battery improvements.

The teaser obviously points to a new Snapdragon Wear platform with the statement that reads "The clock is ticking on something big", alongside an animation showing a smartwatch, processor, and "wear what matter" tagline.

As rumored earlier, the new Snapdragon Wear 5100/5100+ is expected to be based on 4nm manufacturing process, bringing it close to the Samsung Exynos W920, used in the Galaxy Watch 4 series, in both performance and efficiency.

This could have a significant impact on the Wear OS smartwatch ecosystem, especially with Google teaming up with Samsung for Wear OS 3.

Hopefully, we won't wait too long for the official announcement.
