Majority of wearables these days are powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon SoC but the chip maker deems it is better to target the burgeoning wearable market with a dedicated chip. The Snapdragon Wear 2100 is the first SoC that will do the same bringing “enhanced wearable experiences to consumers”.
In comparison with Snapdragon 400, the Snapdragon Wear 2100 is 30 percent smaller and consumes 25 percent less power. Additionally, the chip features an ultra-low power sensor hub and is connected with a mix of Wi-Fi, GPS, LTE modem and Bluetooth.
As far as products are concerned, only LG has confirmed to be working on Qualcomm’s latest wearable platform and it’s safe to say, we’ll have our first look at the device at MWC in the next few days.
