Since Samsung introduced the original Galaxy Watch in 2018, it has been updating its smartwatch lineup every year. And, as is customary around these dates, the rumors about the new model They start to come out strong.
Now we have the Samsung Galaxy Watch4 presented in 2021 on the market, a smartwatch that came with two finishes, the standard (with more sporty lines) and the Classic, and launched Wear OS with the Samsung and Google interface, One UI Watch.
The truth is that the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4, along with the Apple Watch Series 7, is considered one of the best smartwatches of 2022. So what could the South Korean brand do to maintain that good position or even improve it? Let’s break down the rumours.
Galaxy Watch5 rumors and leaks
Let’s start with the design. GalaxyClub claims to have found the in-house development names and model numbers of upcoming Samsung smartwatches. All are identified under the key “Heart”, and curiously there are not two, but three versions.
It is about Heart-S, a small watch that will come in 40 and 42 mm; Heart-L, a larger version with sizes of 44 and 46 mm, and Heart-Pro, an advanced version, but according to this rumor it would come in only one size.
There is also information about the sensors. One of the main novelties of the current generation is the body composition sensor, but the new Galaxy Watch5 would take a step forward by offering body temperature monitoringaccording to ET News.
Of course, on this point there are conflicting opinions. The well-known analyst, well-known analyst Ming-Chi Kuo believes that Samsung Galaxy Watch5 will not arrive with a temperature sensor because the algorithm would not yet be ready to offer accurate values.
According to Sammyfans, documentation from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) reveals that the three models would support a 10W chargea substantial improvement if we take into account the 5 W of the Galaxy Watch4.
SamMobile sources, in line with a Korean certification, suggest that the Pro version of the Galaxy Watch5 will stand out for having a huge 572mAh batterywhich translates into an increase of almost 60% in relation to the 361 mAh of the Galaxy Watch4.
Laker Evan Blass, meanwhile, has shared on Twitter a screenshot with a code from an undisclosed app. However, what is interesting is in the information that these data provide us. The key names mentioned above and their colors appear there.
The “Heart-S” model, which would be equivalent to the standard version, and the “Heart-L”, which would be equivalent to the Classic version, would arrive in colors silver or gray (graphite). Also, the first would get a unique color, which would be the pink goldand the second with an option Sapphire.
Possible price and availability of the Galaxy Watch5
If we stick to historical data, the South Korean company could present its new Galaxy Watch5 sometime in August 2022. So we will have to be attentive to a Samsung Unpacked event that would take place soon.
In relation to the price, there are no clear guidelines. Samsung could decide to keep the prices of the Galaxy Watch4, which start from 269 euros for the standard version and from 369 euros for the Classic version. And if there is a “Pro” model, presumably could be more expensive.
For now, we can only wait to find out the official details of the next Samsung smart watch. And if we want to dream about its design, we can do it in advance with the work of Meeco.kr, who has given free rein to his imagination with the renders that we see in this article.
