Qualcomm Announces Snapdragon Wear 4100 for Wearables

Aside from making processors for mobile phones and tablets, Qualcomm also makes SoCs for wearables through the Snapdragon Wear line. Its latest platform—the Snapdragon Wear 4100+, improves on last years’ Snapdragon Wear 3100 with its 12nm architecture and 1.7 GHz quad-core Cortex-A53 CPU. An Adreno 504 handles the GPU side, and the Snapdragon Wear 4100+ has support for 750 MHz LPDDR3 memory and eMMC 4.5 storage. Making this chipset interesting is that it has dual ISPs that support up to 16-megapixel cameras—that might mean that there will be smartwatches with cameras in the near future.

Going through the features, the Snapdragon Wear 4100+ is said to be 85% better performing than the Snapdragon Wear 3100. It comes with an integrated 4G LTE modem, dedicated DSP, Wi-Fi a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 5.0, and a newer AON co-processor that has a better battery life and support for up to 64k colors. The vanilla Snapdragon 4100 loses AON co-processor but is identical to its + sibling.


The new platform will natively support Wear OS, with the mobvoi TicWatch Pro 3 being one of the first smartwatches to support the new chipset.
