It’s been more than a year since the last Galaxy smartwatch with a physical rotating bezel was launched. The Galaxy Watch is highly regarded by those who purchased it, and many have been waiting for a proper Galaxy Watch successor to hit the market. What they got, however, were the Galaxy Watch Active and Galaxy Watch Active 2, both of which are excellent smartwatches but, as some would say, lack the charm that made Samsung’s smartwatches so special.
But could their wish finally come true in 2020? Well, we aren’t sure about that, but it seems Samsung has started working on a new smartwatch. According to our friends over at GalaxyClub, a smartwatch with model number SM-R840 is being developed. The new watch reportedly has a battery capacity of 330 mAh, but no other details are available at this time. That makes it hard to speculate whether the SM-R840 is a direct sequel to the Galaxy Watch or if it is a Galaxy Watch Active 3.
It’s also unclear when this smartwatch will be officially announced. Since we haven’t heard much about the SM-R840, a launch alongside the Galaxy S20 and Galaxy Z Flip on February 11 seems unlikely. We guess it will accompany the Galaxy Note 20 in the second half of the year, and we should see more information on the new watch surfacing on the internet in the coming months.
