Samsung today announced the Exynos W1000 chipset, which will power the Galaxy Watch7 and Galaxy Watch7 Ultra. Before the July 10 Unpacked event, Samsung decided to make this announcement.

With a 3nm GAA process and fan-out panel-level packaging (FOPLP), Samsung’s Exynos W1000 boasts a smaller form factor and better heat dissipation than the 5nm W930.

An embedded package on package (ePoP) mounts the DRAM and NAND flash memory on the chip using the system in a package (SiP) method.

Featuring a Cortex-A78 big core running at 1.6GHz and four Cortex-A55s at 1.5GHz, the CPU has a total of six processing cores. Graphics are handled by a Mali-G68 MP2, which can handle displays up to 640×640 pixels. A 32GB storage unit is integrated.

According to Samsung, the Exynos W1000 opens apps nearly three times faster than the W930. Also included is a 2.5D always-on display with enhanced watch faces and rich details.

As well as powering the Galaxy Watch7 and Galaxy Watch7 Ultra, the Exynos W1000 could also be found inside the Galaxy Ring.
