    Galaxy Watch 6 to follow Apple Watch and Pixel Watch’s design trait

    Samsung is expected to unveil the Galaxy Watch 6 series later this year alongside the Galaxy Z Flip 5 and the Galaxy Z Fold 5. The company seems to be making significant design changes to all these upcoming devices, with the foldable phones getting a teardrop-shaped hinge that makes the screen crease less visible. The upcoming Galaxy Watch, too, will move away from an industrial look.

    According to tipster Ice Universe (@UniverseIce), the Galaxy Watch 6 will feature a curved glass design. That's different from the Galaxy Watch 5's flat screen. If this information is correct, Samsung may have taken some inspiration from the Apple Watch and Google's Pixel Watch. A curved glass design on the edges of the screen makes the phone more susceptible to scratches, but it might also make the device more elegant.

    Not much else is known about the Galaxy Watch 6, but previous reports indicated that Samsung is in talks with Chinese display manufacturer BOE for OLED panel supply. The company will likely continue using a circular OLED screen, similar to all previous Galaxy Watches. After using the same Exynos W920 chipset for two years, Samsung might bring a newer chipset with the Galaxy Watch 6.

    We expect it to feature all the health and fitness tracking features the Galaxy Watch 5 series offers, including blood pressure monitoring, heart rate tracking, ECG, SpO2 measurement, body composition analysis, sleep tracking, and workout tracking. We expect it to come in Wi-Fi-only and Wi-Fi + 5G variants.
