Galaxy Watch FCC listing reveals screen size


Last updated: July 19th, 2018 at 17:34 UTC+02:00

Samsung is now expected to launch its new smartwatch alongside the Galaxy Note 9 on August 9. It also appears that the company is going to call its new smartwatch the Galaxy Watch instead of the Gear S4. The Galaxy Watch has now been certified by the FCC. The listing not only reiterates the new moniker of the device but also reveals its screen size.

We have previously revealed that the new smartwatch will be available in two different models, , bearing model number SM-R800 and SM-R810. This won’t be surprising as the Gear S3 had two models as well – Classic and Frontier.

The SM-R815 has now been certified by the FCC. It’s going to be the LTE variant of the of the two Galaxy Watch models. The FCC listing mentions that the smartwatch’s display measures 30.2mm or 1.19-inch diagonally. In comparison, both the Gear S3 Classic and Frontier feature a 1.3-inch display. Only the Gear Sport had a 1.2-inch display.

It’s possible that the other model, the SM-R800, might have a different display size. A recent report has also suggested that the two models will come in different sizes. That being said, the obvious limitation of the smartwatch form factor means that any difference isn’t going to be more than a tenth or so of an inch.

Perhaps Samsung is opting for a more sportier look with the new smartwatch by shrinking down the display ever so slightly. The reduced size might make the smartwatch more appealing to people with smaller wrists, it may particularly appeal to women as well.

We have already confirmed exclusively that the Galaxy Watch will feature Bixby and that despite it being moved under the Galaxy brand, the smartwatch will be running the latest version of Tizen OS. Samsung is not only expected to unveil the new smartwatch alongside the Galaxy Note 9 but the new flagship smartphone and smartwatch may also be released on the same date: August 24.
