There have been numerous leaks concerning Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Watch 5 series over the past few weeks. The Galaxy Watch 5 and Galaxy Watch 5 Pro, both of which will have bigger batteries and faster-charging capabilities, will be the two versions that Samsung will offer in the new lineup, according to what we currently know. We’ve also found information on both the rumored price and the color options for both models. However, none of the earlier leaks have provided us with a glimpse of the design. Today, however, that has changed thanks to renders of the Galaxy Watch 5 and Galaxy Watch 5 Pro published by legendary leaker Evan Blass (via 91mobiles), which give us a 360-degree glimpse of Samsung’s upcoming Wear OS smartwatches.
The amazing Galaxy Watch4 running Wear OS 3 is the reason why Samsung presently controls the Wear OS market. Many users are now anticipating the release of the Galaxy Watch5 as the first anniversary of the watch approaches. Almost everything about the wearable has already been exposed through leaks, including the discontinuation of the convenient rotating bezel and the inclusion of a new Pro model in the lineup.
The Galaxy Watch5 and Watch5 Pro’s 3D renderings were created by 91Mobiles and Evan Blass. Although the website describes these renders as “authentic,” it hasn’t revealed the precise source, so we are unsure of where these pictures actually came from. The GIFs display the normal Galaxy Watch5, code-named “Heart”, with a Watch4-like design. The renders make it challenging to identify design modifications. The watch will reportedly be offered in two sizes and with Bluetooth- or LTE-only connectivity. It ought to be offered in a variety of colors, such as white, light blue, and black.
Renders of the Galaxy Watch5 Pro depict a more robust wearable with a more upscale appearance. According to rumors, the watch may include a sapphire glass and a titanium casing, which would account for its more upscale appearance in the images. A large 572mAh battery—an increase of 60% from the Galaxy Watch4—might be the cause of the thickness. According to rumors, the smartwatch will come in black or gray titanium. The Watch5 Pro is unlikely to come in more casing sizes than the standard model.
According to the renders, the rotating bezel rumored earlier is not there, and Samsung will most likely use an on-screen bezel similar to the Galaxy Watch Active series and the normal Galaxy Watch 4.
Both smartwatches ought to debut with One UI Watch 4.5 running on Wear OS 3.5. We’ve already had a sneak peek at all the new watches and improvements the upgraded skin would contain thanks to leaked screenshots. In advance of this new wearable series, Samsung is also administering a One UI Watch 4.5 beta program for the Galaxy Watch4 line.
Most likely, Samsung’s upcoming wearables may make their debut during an Unpacked event in August alongside the Galaxy Z Fold4 and Flip4.
