Qualcomm has announced its 2 new processors for wear os, Snapdragon 4100 and 4100+ which is expected to deliver a boosted performance for Google’s wear OS powered smartwatches.

Since 2018, all the wear os powered smartwatches are having Qualcomm 3100 inside its hood which is almost same the previous 2 year’s Snapdragon 2100. Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 4100 has changed its process size from 28nm to 12nm which makes the chips much faster than its previous wear chipsets. The new processor will deliver 25% more battery life and faster LPDDR3 memory.

Snapdragon Wear 4100 can deliver 85% faster performance with its quad core A53 processors running at 1.7Ghz and 2.5x faster Adreno 504 GPU. It will also support camera up to 16 megapixel and a low powered 4G LTE modem.

The Snapdragon 4100+ processor features QCC1110 co-processor that can handle more tasks including offloading sleep tracking and heart-rate tracking to this resource-efficient chip instead of the main CPU.

Its new “Watch mode” it supports 64K colours, battery indicators, alarms, reminders, and haptics, while Qualcomm touts “faster tilt-to-wake responsiveness.” The regular 4100 lacks the co-processor for manufacturers that don’t need an ambient display.

Even after building the Wear OS smartwatches several years, Google is yet to make a break-through wear os smartwatch to take on the bigger player Apple Watch which is now ruling the smart watch market.
