Samsung's next generation of flagship smartwatches is now believed to be the first of their line to debut with a 3 nanometer (nm) processor, made using the OEM itself using its latest techniques. Should that be the case, it would also mean that the Watch7 series would beat even Galaxy S24-series smartphones to this potentially significant upgrade.

Samsung might be on the brink of bringing Exynos chipsets back to its Galaxy S24 series in 2024 - then again, the flagship 2400 chipset in question is said to be 4nm, which would make it more up-to-date than, say, the W930 chipset made for the Galaxy Watch6 series, at least. However, for something even newer than either, one might now have to turn to their Watch7 successors instead.

The alleged new wearables platform remains unnamed by the "industry insiders" cited by Korean media blog NewDaily in making these claims, yet is slated to be made using the 3GAP process.

It is touted to deliver chips that are 35% smaller, yet deliver up to 30% more performance while using 50% less power compared to their 5nm forebears. Their debut in the Galaxy Watch7 and its variants is now projected to occur in the second half of 2024.

They may be a surprising choice of nominees as the first-gen 3nm mobile devices from Samsung; however, the alleged move might yet make sense as a novel way of driving hype (and sales) for a Galaxy S25 series powered by an Exynos 2500 platform with the upgrade to match.
