Exynos W920 Specs

Samsung’s 5nm process-based Exynos W920 is equipped with two Arm Cortex-A55 cores for high-performing yet power-efficient processing and an Arm Mali-G68 GPU that boasts improved CPU performance around 20-percent and is ten times better graphics performance than its predecessor.

Moreover, the Exynos W920 comes in the smallest package to date for wearables with Fan-Out Panel Level Packaging (FO-PLP) even with the latest features and enhancements. Though the compact size of the processor lets smartwatches house larger batteries.

The technology incorporates the Exynos W920, power management IC (PMIC), LPDDR4, and embedded multimedia card (eMMC) in the same package using System-in-Package-embedded Package on Package (SiP-ePoP) configuration.

Less power consumption under AOD

Instead of powering the main CPU, Samsung Exynos W920 activates the Cortex-M55, a dedicated low-power display processor, to reduce display power consumption under AOD mode compared to its previous Exynos model i.e. the Exynos 9910.

The Exynos W920 is embedded with a 4G LTE Cat.4 modem and a Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) L1 for tracking speed and distance and elevation during outdoor activities for seamless connected experiences on the go.

Stay tuned for more info, also we will be joining the live stream of Samsung Unpacked with you tomorrow!

After Galaxy Store, the Google Play Store is the second biggest option for Samsung consumers to download and install Android apps. There are millions of apps available on the Google Play Store including free of cost and paid too, meanwhile, Huawei AppGallery is reportedly bringing paid Android apps for free, LOL!

Well, this is not any program initiated by the US-banned Huawei, but, it’s happening because of a flaw (fault) in the AppGallery. As per the information, an Android Developer discovered a new exploit in the Huawei AppGallery store that offers no protection for paid apps.

Right now, consumers can get a valid APK download link for premium apps through the AppGallery store, without any type of payment. It seems like Huawei is aware of this severe issue and has acknowledged it (via Huawei Central), however, it’s not fixed yet making its use possible for app piracy.

Following the US sanctions in the past years, Huawei has been restricted from using Google Mobile Services for its devices. Accordingly, the Chinese company has created its own suite of apps and services such as the AppGallery store, which allows Huawei devices to install Android apps in the lack of the Google Play Store.
