Samsung has further said that since the processor is small in size, it leads to there being space in the smartwatch for putting in a large battery, while still giving users a sleek design.

Moreover, to offer an Always-on-Display (AOD) feature in the wearables, the chipset, Samsung said, is equipped with a dedicated processor for low-power display – Cortex M55. The company said that this would help in reducing the display power consumption when the wearable is under AOD mode in comparison to the previous Exynos model.

The chipset also has a 4G LTE Cat.4 modem for connectivity, along with a Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) L1 to enable users in tracking distance, speed and elevation when undertaking outdoor activities.
