Despite the growing popularity of smart watches, Qualcomm, which develops hardware platforms for Wear OS devices, has not released new processors since 2016. Recently, the network even discussed the fact that the manufacturer is no longer interested in this market, which largely depends on it. Fortunately, as it turned out today, Qualcomm still remembers the Android watch and is going to help their development.
The manufacturing company invited reporters to a presentation scheduled for September 10 in US San Francisco. According to the invitation poster, the event will be dedicated to the new processor for smart watches running on the Google operating system - Wear OS, which until recently was called Android Wear.
