Galaxy Unpacked event rumored for July this year will likely see the release of the next-generation foldable line-up and smart wearables. Even before the South Korean electronics giant breaks silence on the Galaxy Watch 6 series, the inevitable leaks and rumors will set the tone for what’s coming our way.
Going by what reliable tipsters have to say, the wearable will come in two different versions. One of them is going to be a classic variant, and the 5K renders of this premium option is what reliable leakster OnLeaks has released out in the public domain. MySmartPrice has dissected these convincing-looking images for their face value to give readers a better idea of what Samsung will offer.
Dubbed Galaxy Watch 6 Classic, the smartwatch gets a rotating bezel just like the Galaxy Watch 4 Classic. The frame elevates between the buttons and gives the watch a distinct appeal. Although slightly thinner, the thick bezel which encapsulates a circular display measures 1.47 inches on the larger model. Tipster Ice Universe had earlier announced in a tweet about 100 percent confirmation of this screen size that’s going to be bigger than the Watch 5 Pro and have a higher resolution of 470×470 pixels.
The smartwatch is also rumored to have a 425mAh battery which is bigger than the 361mAh on the Watch 4 Classic. In fact, GalaxyClub (Dutch tech blog) confirmed that Watch 6 lineup will have larger battery capacities with the 40mm dial version getting 300mAh and the 44mm variant having 425mAh. Compare this to the 284mAh and 410mAh on the last year’s models respectively. According to them, the smartwatch will have the upgraded Exynos W980 processor for a 10 percent improvement in performance.
Some inspiration from the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro can also be seen with the flat edge on side, brushed metal finish and the magnetic loop clasp band. For those who loved the rotating bezel on one of the older versions, this could be good news. Also, we could see the end of life for the Pro model in this year’s smartwatch line-up.
Samsung seems to have kept the left edge quite flush, whereas the right edge houses the Home and Back buttons. While in the images only the black colorway of the strap is shown, we can expect it to come with more color options. If these OnLeaks renders are the real deal, then one could expect many takers for this nostalgic yet modern wearable.
