There were some technical details on the processors used in the new elements of wearable technology from Samsung, the Samsung Gear 2, Gear 2 and Gear Neo Fit.
Under the hood of Exynos processor and Cortex-M4
Since the beginning of this year Samsung has not only brought to light a new powerful smartphone top of the range, along with the Samsung Galaxy S5 were in fact also presented two new wearable gadgets that represent the ideal of the Korean manufacturer to promote this type of technology.
That of smartwatch certainly is not a category of electronic devices that have been confirmed, but Samsung is confident of being able to make a mainstream product and has accompanied its smartphones to Mobile World Congress 2014 in Barcelona with the Samsung Gear 2, with variant Gear 2 Neo and Gear Fit.
In revealing to the world his new babies the Korean giant has talked a lot about their capabilities and their integration with the experience offered by other smart devices, but the unveiling has not revealed many technical details of what lies beneath those little display.
A few lines about “processors” of course not talking about the same chips used in smartphones. As in the case of their predecessor, the two new smartwatch, Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo make use of a processor Exynos, in particular Exynos 3250 with two cores at 1GHz which now, thanks to the platform Tizen can operate at full power.
The Gear Fit the other side of the chip makes use of a less demanding, more suitable to the RTOS (Real Time Operating System), which comes with the gadget. A solution to the modest STM32F439 Cortex-A4, which is defined as “a more micro controller that a real processor”, clocked at 180MHz. So perfect for low power consumption required from the accessory that promises autonomy than five days and that seems to be much more interesting than its counterpart.
