Qualcomm To Release New Wearable Chip After Two Years

Android P new

It also assists OEMs to bring the latest software enhancements to consumers more rapidly than previous Android OS releases.

Kedia also says that the new silicon will be revealed this fall, alongside a flagship smartwatch to show off its improved capabilities. Instead of the usual 4 + 4 CPU cluster, we are going to see a 2 + 6 Cluster of Kryo 3xx cores.

"We are excited to work with Google to pre-integrate our software with Android P, making it production-ready", said Mike Genewich, director of product management for Qualcomm Technologies. The new chip is created to be smaller (as you would expect considering the 2100 used a 28nm build process) resulting in smaller smartwatches and provide a full fitness experience, all while making the battery last longer. Even Google blatantly ignored the platform during one of its most important events. "The next platform will be the first with purpose-built chips", said Kedia. It is built on an 8nm LPP fabrication process, which compared to the 10nm LPE, consumes 10 percent less battery and features a smaller size, GizmoChina reports.

Qualcomm has apparently been working on the new chips ever since the 2100 began shipping, rethinking the entire architecture of the chipset. This just means that consumers should expect multiple variations. All watches will have Bluetooth and Wi-Fi as a baseline.

In regards to this latter category, Google notes that fitness brands are not happy with the current black and white ambient display as it does not look good. The 2100 promised us smaller smartwatches, but in the fullness of time the Wear OS choices for women have proved to be poor. Most of the technical specifications of the upcoming new chip wasn't given, but Kedia did give out some information on what it will be capable of. And like the Google Assistant on your phone or a Google-powered smart speaker, the Assistant in Wear OS now has full Actions support so you can turn on your robo vacuum, get updates on the stock market, or check the train timetable without needing to use a different device.

First new Solon school levy since 2010 passes overwhelmingly
Excess Levy funds also support both the Cabell County Public Library and the Greater Huntington Parks and Recreation District. The district estimated its running deficit would grow to more than $1.8 million in four years if the levy fails.

It's also promising "significant" changes to the battery life. With a focus on artificial intelligence, the company announced the new 700-series of processors back in February. "When we want to add Fossils and the Michael Kors and LVs of the world, they don't want that".

Android smartwatches are not in a good place right now.

No compromises is a tall order, but Wear OS desperately needs a shot in the arm if it's not going to fall fatally behind.

When Google changed the name of its smartwatch OS from Android Wear to Wear OS, I was pissed.
