The Galaxy Watch 4 and the Galaxy Watch 4 Classic were the world's first smartwatches to run Wear OS 3.0. They also brought high-end features like body composition monitoring. Later this year, the company will launch its new smartwatch lineup, and it will come with an interesting change.
While previous-generation Galaxy Watches were launched in vanilla and ‘Classic' models, the Galaxy Watch 5 won't have a Classic variant. Samsung will launch two variants of its upcoming smartwatch: Galaxy Watch 5 and Galaxy Watch 5 Pro. It is still unclear if these variants will feature a rotatable bezel, which Samsung fans love.
The Galaxy Watch 5 might come in two sizes, while the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro could be limited to just one size.
A few weeks ago, we exclusively revealed that the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro would have a huge, 572mAh battery. It should fix all the battery life complaints people had with the Galaxy Watch 4 series. We can also expect the upcoming watches to carry forward the circular OLED display, GPS, accelerometer, gyro, heart rate sensor, and a body composition sensor that are already available on the Galaxy Watch 4.
We can also confirm that the Galaxy Watch 5 will run a new version of One UI Watch on top of Wear OS 3. We can expect Samsung to make further improvements and add features to One UI Watch. Whether or not the company uses a new processor for the Galaxy Watch 5 remains to be seen.
