According to foreign media reports, Qualcomm announced that it will hold a press conference in San Francisco on September 10 with the theme “It‘s Time”.
Slogan’s pun is a sign that “it is time” and implies that the event is related to “time/watch”.
It is widely believed that Qualcomm will take this opportunity to update the chip for smart watches. At present, most smart watches still use Snapdragon Wear 2100/Wear 2500.
Wear 2100/2500 uses a 4-core Cortex A7 architecture, clocked at 1.2GHz, integrated Adreno 304 GPU and X5 LTE baseband (downstream 1Gbps), screen resolution of up to 640×480 (60FPS), also supports NFC, GPS and so on.
Not surprisingly, the new smartwatch chip will update the architecture and process to provide better endurance performance.
In addition, considering the rumors of Pixel Watch, the new Wear chip is also expected to support the Android 9 Pie system.
