Wear OS will extend battery life in two ways.
Last year Google's big change to the flop OS was making it more of a standalone platform - so it could work much better with an iPhone. That's finally going to happen later this year as Qualcomm has confirmed that it will be releasing a new processor for Wear OS smartwatches this year.
Driving chipset producer Qualcomm will soon dispatch the successor to its Snapdragon Wear 2100 stage.
Xi Jinping, Kim Jong Un hold talks in Dalian
China's top diplomat, Wang Yi, met with Kim in Pyongyang last week, the first trip there by a Chinese foreign minister since 2007. Like the March summit in Beijing , the Dalian summit was kept secret until Kim's plane left for Pyongyang on Tuesday afternoon.
The new chip will be unveiled in the fall alongside a new smartwatch, Qualcomm's senior director of wearables, Pankaj Kedia, told Wareable.
Kedia said consumers can expect a "significant" increase in active and standby battery life - exact figures weren't available. OEMs including Xiaomi, vivo, Sony Mobile, OPPO and OnePlus have announced plans to make the developer preview of Android P available on their devices. Actions let users get things done through a conversational interface that can range from a quick command to turn on some lights or a longer conversation, such as playing a trivia game.
The company announced Wear OS Developer Preview 2 yesterday with a focus on battery life and bringing a better experience to the watch with the Google Assistant.
Google pushed out the first Android P developer preview for Wear OS (the new rebranding for Android Wear) back in March.
Nifty ends above 10700-mark, up 97 points
Markets on Tuesday ended flat with the benchmark BSE Sensex managing to close just 8 points or 0.02 per cent higher at 35,216. ICICI Bank had on Monday reported that its net profit for January-March nearly halved to Rs 1,020 crore.
In regards to this latter category, Google notes that fitness brands are not happy with the current black and white ambient display as it does not look good. All the new chips will have the usual Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity, and 4G LTE connections may become more commonplace.
Originally watches were built using Snapdragon 400 processor which was a slight modification of a phone chip; this was succeeded by the Snapdragon Wear 2100 system-on-chip at the start of 2016.
Wear OS is exhausted and this new chipset will hopefully deliver it a shot in the arm which can not come soon enough.
