More next-gen Galaxy Watch specs revealed by regulatory agency


Last updated: June 7th, 2020 at 11:27 UTC+02:00

After picking up a key certification in China earlier this week, the upcoming Galaxy Watch reappeared in the database of another regulatory agency, namely the FCC. The next-gen Galaxy Watch bearing model numbers SM-R845 and SM-R855 got listed at the FCC earlier today with some interesting specs in tow. The model numbers correspond to the LTE variants, whereas the Wi-Fi-only models – which haven’t appeared at the FCC yet – should bear the model numbers SM-R840 and SM-R850.

45mm, circular dial, solid construction

These are the specs revealed by the FCC documents for the next-gen Galaxy Watch. The filings include a sketch of the smartwatch’s backside, confirming a circular design with a 45mm stainless steel case (this being the larger variant), Gorilla Glass DX, 5ATM and MIL-STD-810G, as well as GPS and LTE connectivity. Keep in mind that even though the FCC sketch mentions a stainless steel construction, the Galaxy Watch should also be released in aluminum and titanium, as reported exclusively by SamMobile last week.

The same sketch also suggests that Samsung’s next smartwatch will simply be called the Galaxy Watch. However, the Galaxy Watch Active 2’s backside doesn’t feature the model’s full name either (it’s labeled as the Galaxy Watch), so there’s no guarantee yet that the upcoming model won’t be called the Galaxy Watch 2 or the Galaxy Watch Active 3. In fact, the back shown in the FCC sketch strongly resembles that of the Galaxy Watch Active 2. Whatever the case may be, we don’t have a shot of the front dial yet, so it remains to be seen if the upcoming smartwatch will have a physical rotating bezel like the original Galaxy Watch or a virtual one akin to the Active models.
