Both of the new Apple Watch models use the same underlying technology as their forerunners, according to a report. Unlike usual, Apple did not go into great information about the Apple S8 chipset at the Far Out launch event last week. The company has only confirmed that the 64-bit dual-core processor powering the Watch Ultra and Watch Series 8 has a 1.8 GHz CPU clock speed. Additionally, both devices include 1 GB of RAM and 32 GB of flash storage.
How Good Is The Apple Watch Ultra?
However, @s1guza has observed that the CPID “T8301,” which is also included in the Watch Series 6 and Watch Series 7, is present in the Watch Series 8, Watch Ultra, and even the Watch SE 2.
In other words, the Apple Watch models from this year are powered by the same chipsets that many customers may have upgraded from. Apple may have chosen to compare the Apple S8 to the Apple S5 rather than the Apple S6 or Apple S7 due to the inclusion of identical chipsets, according to MacRumors.
Additionally, Apple has kept the W3 wireless chip, limiting WiFi 4 connectivity for its smartwatches. On the other hand, Apple has upgraded the Watch Ultra to Bluetooth 5.3, however for some reason this upgrade does not apply to the Watch Series 8. As a result of Android’s competitors now having access to the Snapdragon W5 Gen 1 and Snapdragon W5 Gen Plus 1 platform, Apple is ultimately lagging behind them. Having said that, Samsung just debuted the Galaxy Watch5 series, which uses the same processor as its forerunners, whereas Google will soon introduce the Pixel Watch, which uses an SoC based on the Exynos 9110, a Samsung device introduced in 2018.
