Samsung is still roughly two months away from presenting its next-generation smartwatches. In the meantime, a typically reliable source claims that Samsung will use the Galaxy Watch7, Galaxy Watch7 Pro and Galaxy Watch7 Ultra to deliver its first 3 nm chipset, which is tentatively called the Exynos W1000.

The Korea Economic Daily has revealed new details about the state of the Galaxy Watch7 series. To recap, there have been various rumours about the series of late, including that it will consist of a new 'Ultra' model rather than just the Galaxy Watch7 and the Galaxy Watch7 Pro or Galaxy Watch7 Classic. Additionally, evidence surfaced early last month that Samsung has created a 600 mAh battery for 'SM-L705', the rumoured model number for the Galaxy Watch7 Ultra.

Until now, Samsung has been expected to equip Galaxy Watch6 (curr. $229 on Amazon) successors with an Exynos chipset codenamed 'S5E5535'. Specifics about the S5E5535 remain unclear for now. Nonetheless, the chipset has long been rumoured to deliver up to 30% performance 50% efficiency improvements compared to the Exynos W930 that powers the Galaxy Watch6 series.

According to The Korea Economic Daily, the S5E5535 may arrive as the Exynos W1000. Citing 'people familiar with the matter', the newspaper stresses that this is only a tentative name. However, The Korea Economic Daily appears more certain that the S5E5535 will be the first wearable chipset to adopt a 3 nm manufacturing process. It is worth stressing the wearable element though; Apple became the first chip manufacturer to deliver consumer-grade 3 nm chipsets a few days ago with the release of its Apple M4 silicon.

The Galaxy Watch7 series is expected to arrive in early July. Currently, Samsung's next-generation smartwatches are believed to be in line for release alongside the Galaxy Z Flip6 and Galaxy Z Fold6. Based on earlier rumours, all three will debut during Samsung's next Galaxy Unpacked event in Paris, which may also be when the company provides more information about its long-awaited Galaxy Ring.
