In August Samsung will launch a new wearable running not Tizen but Wear OS. Here’s what we know about the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Watch.
Samsung is known to be holding an Unpacked event on 9 August to unveil its Note 9, but a second new device could headline: the Samsung Galaxy Watch.
Well-known tipster Ice Universe has tweeted new details about the upcoming wearable, suggesting it won’t be a Gear S4 after all, and it won’t be running Tizen but Wear OS. This theory has since been corroborated with reports from Korea.
Other claimed specs include a 470mAh battery, a blood pressure monitor, new UX interactions and some sort of panel-level packaging that allows the main chip to be shrunk down and consume less space, allowing for a smaller battery or more space for internal tech.
When is the Samsung Galaxy Watch release date?
The Galaxy Watch will launch on 9 August at Samsung’s Unpacked event in New York where it is expected to announce the Galaxy Note 9. It is then expected to be available to pre-order from 14 August and on sale 24 August.
We’ll bring you news on the imminent smartwatch as we hear it.
What will the Galaxy Watch look like?
It seems we have a proper look at what the Galaxy Watch thank to Samsung itself. CNET managed to find a listing on the firm’s official website for the device, albeit with not other details like price or specs.
As you can see the model number is SM-R810NZDAXAR and it will come in at least a 42mm Rose Gold model that has Bluetooth.
This leads us to believe there will be separate option with Wi-Fi connectivity. It may also come in a second size and you can expect at least one other colour option.
We also know that the Galaxy Watch will feature wireless charging. Roland Quandt tweeted this leaked image of the Samsung Wireless Charger Duo which can charge two phones at the same time, or one alongside the Galaxy Watch which is mentioned by name on the side of the box.
It appears to be similar to Apple’s AirPower pad, which is yet to launch
