Samsung announced the Exynos W920. at Chip that is said to be the first portable chip to be built using the 5 Nanometer (nm) Extreme Ultra Violet (EUV) process node. The company intends to use it for its future portable devices, such as: Galaxy Watch 4.
Samsung’s new Exynos W920 5 nm chip
The chip has an integrated LTE modem, two Cortex-A55 cores and a Mali-G68 GPU. This GPU promises ten times better graphics performance than its predecessor, which means that interfaces and graphics could look significantly better on future wearables.
That 5nm process allows the company to make a smaller chip with more power, which is really the goal of all chipmakers.

It also has a Cortex-M55 processor that powers always-on displays, which is a great feature for a smartwatch or other wearable device.
Speaking about future wearables, Harry Cho, Vice President of System LSI Marketing at Samsung Electronics, said, “The Exynos W920 will allow future wearables to run applications with beautifully designed interfaces and more responsive user experiences while you go with fast LTE.”
Samsung also noted that the “Exynos W920 supports a new unified wearable platform that Samsung has jointly developed with Google and that will first be applied to the upcoming Galaxy Watch model”. That as good as confirms the existence of the Galaxy Watch 4, which leaked last month and is slated to be announced at the company’s Unpacked event on August 11, 2021. It also confirms that the partnership between Samsung and Google is geared towards getting the most out of Wear, OS and Tizen actually happening together.
Everything will be revealed soon
While Samsung is teasing us by announcing a new 5nm chip, the big news will be on the 11th.
