Qualcomm is the biggest hardware manufacturer for Android smartphones. This company is in charge of producing the famous Snapdragon CPUs that help Android smartphones deliver stellar performances. However, things don’t end there since Qualcomm also creates CPUs for wearable devices that run on Google’s Wear OS.
With that being said, the reason why Qualcomm is making headlines today is because the company has just unveiled its new Snapdragon Wear 3100 chipset.
Snapdragon Wear 3100 Chipset
It’s been a couple of years since Qualcomm launched a new chipset for wearable devices, but luckily, Snapdragon Wear 3100 is finally here. Today we are going to check out what the launch of the new chipset means for Wear OS fans and what type of improvements Snapdragon Wear 3100 brings.
Better Battery Life
Since we are talking about wearable devices, their battery life is really important. These gadgets have been designed to last for days on end and the new Snapdragon Wear 3100 makes their batteries last for even longer periods. Qualcomm announced that all typical Wear OS devices that are powered by Snapdragon Wear 3100 will last for 1-2 days.
New GPS Mode
Big companies such as Luis Vuitton, Montblanc, and Fossil have announced that they will be the first ones to use Snapdragon Wear 3100 in their next-generation Wear OS devices.
The cool thing about this is that the three companies are working on “fitness-focused” devices that maximize the full potential of Snapdragon Wear 3100.
In addition, all three wearable devices will ship with a new feature called “Project Stamina” that is said to use the new chipset’s GPU mode that guarantees 15 hours of battery life with the GPS turned on.
As you would expect from a new chipset, Snapdragon Wear 3100 is way more powerful than its predecessors. Therefore, Wear OS devices that will ship with Snapdragon Wear 3100 are going to feature smoother performances.
