On the other hand, Wear OS users will also get offline Google Maps support which will navigate you even when there’s no internet. Currently, the Maps app on your Galaxy watch requires you to be connected to a smartphone for navigation but after the upgrade that will release later this year, you won’t need your phone to use this functionality.

Aside from these, Samsung further said the Galaxy Watch 4 led 3x the market compared to many active Wear OS watches. Then it brought Google to talk about the upcoming changes to Wear OS that includes SoundCloud and Deezer support, which is also coming later this year.

Samsung said:

“And coming soon, find your way using Google Maps from your wrist without a smartphone connection. Music and audio lovers will appreciate updates that include new apps like SoundCloud and Deezer.”

Google briefly showed off the new UI during Unpacked, check here.

Samsung appears to be simplifying the naming scheme of the wearable Exynos chip. Samsung’s Galaxy Watch 7 is expected to be equipped with the first 3nm chipset, which would be called Exynos W1000.

The Galaxy Watch 7 might use Exynos W1000 chipset, claims SamInsider (via SamMobile). Samsung’s first Wear OS smartwatch, the Galaxy Watch 4, debuted Exynos W920, which also powers the Galaxy Watch 5.

Last year, the company introduced the Galaxy Watch 6, which features the new Exynos W930. Judging from the previous naming, it was assumed that the Watch 7 series would have an Exynos W940 processor.

However, the South Korean tech giant apparently decided to simplify its Exynos line. If the report is correct, Exynos W1000 will power the upcoming Wear OS smartwatches, the Galaxy Watch 7, Watch 7 Pro, and Watch 7 Classic.

  • Watch 7: Exynos W940 W1000

Launch Timeline

Samsung will likely introduce the Galaxy Watch 7 alongside the Galaxy Z Flip 6 and Z Fold 6. The company could hold the Unpacked event in the second week of July, just ahead of the Paris Olympics.

This year, the Watch lineup could consist of three models, an increment of one model. The Watch 6 has two models – Standard and Classic, however, the Watch 7 could bring Standard, Pro, and Classic.
