Samsung Galaxy Watch6 gets Exynos W930 CPU

Samsung will launch the Galaxy Watch6 series on July 26 with the new operating system One UI 5 Watch based on Google Wear OS 4.

Samsung’s next smartwatch chipset is called Exynos W930. The name appeared in a Bluetooth database certification along with the model code S5E5515. Interestingly, it’s the same code as the Exynos W920 that powers the Galaxy Watch4, Watch4 Classic, Watch5, and Watch5 Pro. This suggests that the Exynos W930 is merely a software update of its predecessor, while nothing changes on the hardware.

The Samsung Exynos W930 in the Galaxy Watch6 supports Bluetooth 5.3 and Wi-Fi and is based on the same 5 Nm process as the Exynos W920 that powers current Samsung wearables. According to the certification, the processor needs an additional RF chip for a full Bluetooth and Wi-Fi solution. That would fit since the Watch4 series is still at Bluetooth 5.0 and the Watch5 series is at Bluetooth 5.2. If the hardware of the W930 were to remain the same, the Bluetooth 5.3 standard would have to be implemented using external components such as the RF chip.

That leaves the question of what happened to the Exynos W980. One option is that W980 was just a tentative name and the final chip will be called W930. Another, less likely possibility is that the W980 is a high-end chipset that is still in development. Even less likely is the option of the W980 powering the Galaxy Watch6 Pro while the W930 powers the regular Watch6.

Samsung will launch the Galaxy Watch6 series with the new operating system One UI 5 Watch on July 26th. The new interface is already based on Google Wear OS 4. According to current rumors, the series will bring back the rotating bezel and will be able to detect an irregular heart rhythm.
