Qualcomm is working on a much-needed new WearOS chipset
Qualcomm is reportedly working on a WearOS chipset that should finally deliver some tangible performance and battery life improvements.
Qualcomm’s most recent WearOS chipset, the Snapdragon 3100, was widely regarded as a disappointment; offering minimal improvements over its predecessor.
The 3100’s main processor was left relatively unchanged with the key change being the addition of the QC1110 co-processor.
Based on a 7nm process, the QC1110 promised to handle things such as the always-on display and sensor information to reduce battery consumption. Even after the Android H update to support the co-processor eventually reached devices, a very minimal difference was made
