What most people don’t know is that it is even more comparable to the iPhone 5S in terms of processor technology. This is because the Apple Watch Series 4 is the first of its kind to have a 64-bit chip inside, while the iPhone 5S is the first smartphone to ship with a 64-bit processor.
In a more updated report though, it has been revealed that the S4 SiP (Silicon in Package) found in the Series 4 device can deliver performance similar to that of the iPhone 6S. You can just imagine that the 64-bit dual-core S4 chip is twice as fast as the S3 chip on the Series 3 device.
In fact, after the comparison of 5 Apple Watch models, it was found out that the Series 4 was considered the fastest. The difference in speed is so significant when you compare Series 2 and 4. This makes you realize that speed changes can be an entirely different experience as opposed to using older Apple Watches.
Showcasing More Than Just Speed
Aside from the speed of the processor that is simply amazing in Series 4, you can also experience the 60fps real-time physics and metal rendering capacity of the device. But that is only using 64% of the overall power of the chip.
Another thing about the new Apple Watch is that it is so powerful. Perhaps this is how Apple is future-proofing the gadget to be able to adapt to future watchOS releases. Moreover, it has been rumored that the new 64-bit S4 chip could be geared toward the release of AR glasses in the near future.
On Par With The Galaxy A9 Processor
In the first place, perhaps you may be confused as to why the Apple Watch Series 4 has been compared with the Samsung Galaxy A9. Well, you should know that the Galaxy A9 has a Qualcomm SDM660 Snapdragon 660 (14nm) chipset, which is paired with an Octa-core (4×2.2 GHz Kryo 260 and 4×1.8 GHz Kryo 260) CPU.
Of course, the Galaxy A9 has more than just the processor inside it, because it is packed with 128GB storage, 6GB or 8GB RAM, and 3,800mAh. Apart from that, it has a 6.3-inch Super AMOLED display at 392ppi. Moreover, it has 24MP resolution cameras on both front and rear, pretty much what you would want on your own gadget.
On the same note, the Apple Watch Series 4 has a few things that you would want on your device. Since it is just a watch, having some advanced hardware in it can make it a very powerful device. As a matter of fact, the 4th generation CPU is faster than ever. This makes it capable to open apps a lot faster and boost the performance of the entire system.
