According to the report, the code names of the watches will be Ling , Triton , and Sardine . The products have reached second level of design verification where the company checks if mass production of the hardware design is feasible. All the smartwatches in question will be powered by Qualcomm s upcoming Snapdragon Wear 3100 SoC platform. Snapdragon Wear 3100 SoC platform will come with a quad-core CPU that will be based on ARM Cortex-A7 architecture made using 28-nm manufacturing process.

Qualcomm will also pack Adreno 304 GPU for all the graphics-intensive tasks. According to the report, the highlight of this new platform will be a new power management solution known as the PMW3100. It is likely to be a power management IC that is designed using Blackghost , a test chip that was aimed to power Internet-of-Things, e-medical applications, and wearables.

This paved the way to Qualcomm s new Blackghost ultra-low-power mixed-signal SoC lineup. The Blackghost chip is likely to be the part of the Snapdragon Wear 3100 platform and it will always be on. This means that it can handle the ability to take voice commands at any time or information shows in the always-on display . This means that the actual processor will only be used when it is active and everything else will be offloaded on Blackghost.
