Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 Pro

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.

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.
