Rumor: Galaxy Watch sizes and colors possibly revealed

Samsung is expected to unveil a new smartwatch on August 9 alongside the Galaxy Note 9. It was previously referred to as the Gear S4 but we now know that Samsung is going to launch it as the Galaxy Watch. Even though it’s going to carry the Galaxy branding, we have exclusively confirmed that the new smartwatch will be running Tizen 4.0 out of the box. We have now heard some rumors about the Galaxy Watch sizes and colors.

Galaxy Watch sizes and colors

A couple of FCC listings for the Galaxy Watch have already revealed that the new smartwatch will be available in two different display sizes. The FCC has certified two models – SM-R800 and SM-R810 – with 1.3-inch and 1.2-inch displays respectively.

Word on the street is that there will indeed be a noticeable size difference between the two Galaxy Watch models. The model with the 1.3-inch display will measure 46mm which is the same as the Gear S3. The other model will measure 42mm which is a hair shorter than the 43mm Gear Sport.

Larger watches are in vogue these days so Samsung might find a lot of takers for the 46mm model. Those with smaller wrists who didn’t like how out of place a larger watch looked on them might then be catered to with the 42mm option. Many, including myself, feel that 42mm is an appropriate size for a watch – smart or not.

We exclusively confirmed last month that Samsung’s upcoming smartwatch will be offered in a new gold color. The rumors we’re hearing suggest that the 46mm model will be available in rose gold, black and silver colors. The 42mm model may only be offered in rose gold and silver colors.

Samsung is going to offer Wi-Fi and LTE variants of both models. The rumors claim that the LTE models will be available on all US carriers and that Samsung will release the Galaxy Watch on the same day as the Galaxy Note 9. As it stands, the Galaxy Note 9 is expected to be released on August 24.

Do bear in mind that these are rumors and not solid information from trusted sources even though everything claimed is within the realm of possibility.

I do not understand why LTE variants are not being brought to more countries. we got the 3G Gear S2 in the UK (11 months after launch) but didn’t even see the LTE Gear S3, it was even advertised as having an E-SIM on their website but was taken off a month later. If they have an exchange programme I’ll swap my Gear S3 for it, but I would really prefer the LTE version to arrive this year.

Would be nice if they have integrated sim card chip to use it like mobile phone without mobile device. Same could have new note 9, integrated one sim.

On watch size, I find 42mm a bit small..The Frontier is a perfect size for me. My sister in law with small wrists has the classic version and is happy with the size. My wife has the Gear Sport which is smaller. It’s all a matter of taste. There is no perfect size for a watch, everyone has different needs.

Lte smartwatches depend on the capability of your carriers to handle e-sim connectivity . In some countries the carriers don’t have the technology to support it, so they don’t bother selling lte versions. It’s a fact that Indian carriers do NOT support e-sim so your comment is a bit stupid. If you got an lte enabled watch in India you wouldn’t be able to use it!!! Lol

Using it in the present or not doesn’t matter and esim will soon be available for most of the products as it is if u are not that great with being informed apple watches support esim tech in India so having the tech is a good thing as it would be future ready rat her than wasting money for buying this watch and spending more for the one that would be launched later

It will be years before e-sim support will be available in India, it is a very backwards and slow country with not the infrastructure available. 75% of Indians don’t even have a toilet in their house and you think e-sim support will come soon. Lolol. Your lte watch would be obsolete before it arrives! Why would anyone be stupid enough to sell lte watches in India? It would be a commercial failure. It would be like trying to sell light bulbs to someone with no electricity…
