Let us for a moment of side the situation facing Samsung with its Galaxy Note 7 and see what else are making the South Koreans. As we know, their presence extends to several markets where the division of chips It is one of the most successful and profitable for the company, and this is who precisely is announcing its new development directed wearables to IoT devices.
The new one Dual 7 Exynos 7270 It is an interesting by Samsung bet, since it is based on his famous 14 FinFet nanometer process that has used in their SoC for smartphones, but now it takes a step further to addressing the market of the wearables with a solution of total connectivity that integrates its own 4 G LTE modem for the first time.
Dual 7 Exynos 7270 with LTE
This new SoC integrates dual-core Cortex-A53, where according to the company will offer an efficiency of up to 20% when compared with its predecessor that was manufactured under 28 nanometer processes, allowing you to have the same power but with greater autonomy, only 100 square millimeters in size and with a height of 30% reduction.
Dual 7 Exynos 7270 integrates with WiFi, Bluetooth, FM Radio support, and GPS (GNSS) “total connectivity”, but the most important part is the addition of a 4 G LTE modem category 4, allowing that devices can be connected to the network of mobile data without the need for a smartphone.
This will benefit the manufacturers seeking to develop wearables, as smartwatches, bracelet and personal quantifiers, more independent and with enough power to perform tasks of geolocation and mobile connection in a single component, which will benefit the design of devices and especially the capacities of the batteries.
With this new Dual 7 Exynos 7270 Samsung gets full to the race to have economic, with full connectivity and small processors, a race where is already present Qualcomm with their Snapdragon 1100 and 2100, with what seems the future generation of wearables very interesting, for example Apple was one of the companies seeking a SoC with LTE without penalizing energy consumption in its Apple Watch, something that caused that Apple Watch Series 2 has reached the long-awaited mobile offline.
