Samsung is claiming 20 per cent better CPU performance and ten times better GPU performance than its previous wearable chip. The W920 also includes a Cortex-M55 processor that's dedicated to driving an always-on display, further reducing power consumption.

People likely will not have to wait too long to see this chip used in a commercial device. Samsung said that the Exynos W920 "supports a new unified wearable platform Samsung built jointly with Google and will be first applied to the upcoming Galaxy Watch model."

The model is almost certainly the extensively leaked Galaxy Watch 4 series, which we are expecting to see break official cover at Samsung's Unpacked event on Wednesday.

As Samsung mentions, the company has been working with Google on new smartwatch software that combines Tizen and Wear OS, and now we know that it will be running on new hardware as well. That should be good news since performance has long been a problem on Wear OS watches.
