  • Regulatory filings confirm that the Samsung Galaxy Watch 6 will get an upgraded processor.
  • The SoC will land as the Exynos W930, replacing the aging W92o from the Galaxy Watch 5 and Galaxy Watch 4.
  • Interestingly, the SoC has the same model number as the W920, so the chips might not be that different.

When the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 landed, we were slightly disappointed that it didn’t have a processor upgrade. Instead, it released with the Exynos W920, the same processor that’s in the Galaxy Watch 4. However, it looks like we’ll be seeing an upgrade this year.

The Bluetooth SIG database — a regulatory firm that needs to approve devices before they go up for sale — has just published its filing for the Samsung Galaxy Watch 6 (h/t SamMobile). That filing confirms the next Galaxy Watch will get a new system on a chip (SoC).
