Qualcomm Technologies has announced an increase in its investment in its Snapdragon Wear lineup and has pledged to “release new Snapdragon Wear platforms across all segments within the next year.” This means that the flagship Snapdragon Wear 4100, which was introduced a year ago, will receive a successor in 2022.
Our Snapdragon Wear platforms are driving the industry forward with smartwatches for kids, adults and seniors, pet fitness trackers and more. We are significantly increasing our investment in cutting-edge semiconductor chips, platforms and technologies, and we plan to roll out new Snapdragon Wear platforms across all segments over the next year to align with our long-term vision.
