Along with the new processors for smartphones and tablets, Qualcomm has also announced the Snapdragon Wear 2100 chip which is geared towards improving the design, functionality and battery life of next generation wearables.
The new Snapdragon Wear 2100 processor is made up of four (4) Cortex-A7 chips which have a top speed of 800Mhz/1.2GHz when pushed to its limit, yet consumes less power (25% less to be exact) compared to older model.
It’s accompanied by an Adreno 304 GPU and can be imbued with a X5 modem which covers wireless and cellular connectivity, including LTE.
In terms of its design, Qualcomm was able to shrink its new chip’s size by about a third compared to the Snapdragon 400. This in turn will give wearable makers more freedom in designing their future wearables.
Qualcomm stated that next-generation wearables that runs on the new Wear 2100 are already in the works and are slated to make its market debut on the second half of this year.
