Yesterday, Samsung unveiled the Galaxy Watch 6 series during its Galaxy Unpacked event. In addition to a slimmer design, brighter display, and better health-tracking capabilities, Samsung’s new smartwatches also feature an improved Exynos W930 chip, which the Korean giant has now officially announced.
