Qualcomm is developing the next generation of wearable device SOC, XDA reported. XDA developers found that Qualcomm uploaded Linux kernel source code for its chipset on the Code Aurora forum, and found the file name “sdw3300-bg-1gb-wtp.dts” in the “SDW3300 device”, which indicates that the new platform is based on the Dragon 429. It’s called The Dragon Wear 3300.
Launched in mid-2018, the Dragon 429 is built on a 12nm process with four Cortex A53 cores and a CPU main frequency of 1.95GHz. Qualcomm is likely to work with the four Cortex A53 cores with low-power coprocessors, PMIcs, integrated DSPs and other components to create a new Peron wearable platform, the report said.
XDA points out that the new wearable SOC will consume less power, effectively extending the battery life of wearabledevices, combining 1GB of memory, and that the future OfTheS smartwatch will perform better than ever, and it’s worth looking forward to.
Qualcomm has yet to confirm any details of the next generation of wearable SOCs.
