At the disposal of the insider Roland Quandt was information about the new flagship Qualcomm chip for smartwatches. It is expected that the Snapdragon 5100 family will be presented in two versions: basic and with the Plus prefix.
The production of new products will be carried out according to the 4-nm process technology. Presumably, Qualcomm will use 1.7GHz ARM Cortex-A53 cores and Adreno 702 integrated graphics. In addition, smartwatches built on Snapdragon 5100+ will support up to 4GB of RAM. The platform is also known to be compatible with the eMMC 5.1 flash memory standard.
It is also reported about the presence of ISP, which allows the installation of two cameras with a resolution of up to 16 megapixels. At the same time, the new processor will be able to work not only on smart watches with the Wear OS operating system, but also be used as the basis for full-fledged Android smartphones. Finally, the Snapdragon 5100 platform is credited with supporting the Bluetooth 5.2 wireless protocol and the presence of a special controller responsible for energy efficiency.
The presentation of new chips, according to the source, may take place in the near future.
