Stunning Galaxy Watch 5 and 5 Pro Renders Revealed: Check Out Samsung’s Next Watches

Written by admin

The prolific spill Evan Blass has just… shared some mesmerizing 3D renderings of Samsung’s long-awaited turntable Galaxy Watch 5 series, expected to be announced in early August along with the Galaxy Z Flip 4 and Z Fold 4. As a refresher, Samsung has adopted August as its launch window for the second half of each respective year in recent years, announcing the latest smartwatches, foldable and traditional smartphones.

As we noted in our dedicated Galaxy Watch 5 hub, we expect Samsung to announce two separate watches, one of those versions will be available in two different sizes, equating to a total of three different Galaxy Watch 5 wearables. Common to everyone is the use of sapphire crystal instead of Gorilla Glass DX, which should work wonders for the scratch resistance of the screens. All models will also be 5ATM water resistant. In terms of interface, you can expect One UI Watch 4.5 based on wear OS 3.5, the latest version of The software collaboration of Google and Samsung.
Some other common features found on all new Samsung wearables may include a thermometer that measures your body temperature, a feature that may also Apple’s upcoming Watch 8 series. Apart from that, an EKG, always-on heart rate measurement, BMI sensor and multiple other sensors will make it to the Galaxy Watch 5 series.

Let’s start with the…

Galaxy Watch 5 Pro

The Galaxy Watch 5 Pro will be Samsung’s more premium upcoming smartwatch, positioning itself as a direct descendant of the Galaxy Watch 4 Classic. There’s one pretty obvious difference, though: the new wearable seems to be doing away with the signature rotating bezel that’s been used on a large number of Samsung smartwatches over the years. It’s sad to see it go this way, as it allowed for some new interface interaction solutions: by turning the bezel left and right, you can quickly interact with the watch without having to resort to the touchscreen itself. , useful during training and other usage situations.

Instead, Samsung is reportedly going to use a so-called “digital bezel”. This will be an indented capacitive bezel around the screen that allegedly emulates the hardware rotating bezel. There is speculation that this notch is used for better finger accuracy, but it remains to be seen whether hardcore Galaxy Watch fans will be excited about this drastic design change.

The Galaxy Watch 5 Pro is expected to come in only one size, 45mm, and be noticeably thicker than last year’s Galaxy Watch 4 Classic. A bigger battery, reportedly in the margins of around 500mAh, might be the culprit, but hey, as long as we get significantly longer battery life, we’re all for it. Of course, like most smartwatches these days, there will be Bluetooth-only and Bluetooth+LTE versions available, with the latter carrying a higher price tag.

Meanwhile, the regular Galaxy Watch 5 is expected to be similar to last year’s Galaxy Watch 4. The mainstream smartwatch will reportedly come in many more colors than the more chic and premium Galaxy Watch 5 Pro, but Blass has only shared a single-color version called “Sapphire.” As for the dimensions, we expect both 40 and 44mm versions to be available, again with only Bluetooth and LTE+Bluetooth variants up for grabs.

As mentioned, we should expect the Galaxy Watch 5 Series in early August, possibly on August 10. Prices would likely start at around $250 for the Galaxy Watch 5 and around $350 for the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro, provided Samsung changes its pricing strategy from last year. Of course, the realities of inflation in 2022 and the expected price increases in the sector indicate that we should probably expect a slight price increase.
