Samsung may be planning to shake up its smartwatch lineup this year. A new Pro model is apparently on the way, but it’s unclear whether it will replace the classic model. Based on rumors, the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 Pro will be at the top of the range, and according to the latest leak, it will be made from premium materials. Find out the details here.
According to information from leaker Ice Universe, the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro would be equipped with sapphire crystal protection, which would allow it to be particularly resistant to drops and scratches. This would therefore be a first for Samsung, which currently uses less resistant Gorilla Glass DX glass on its latest Galaxy Watch 4 of 2021.
Apart, Ice Universe announces that Samsung’s next watch will feature a titanium case, making it super tough. As a reminder, this would not be the first time that Samsung has used titanium in one of its smartwatches.
Therefore, rumors have already started to be circulated regarding a possible rotating gear around the display, as already happens in the Galaxy Watch 4 Classic. These commands would serve to help navigation through the watch’s operating system, among other miscellaneous functions.
In addition, few technical specifications of the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 Pro have been revealed so far. However, certifications have already shown that it should have a 572mAh battery, about 60% higher capacity compared to the standard Galaxy Watch 4.
The official date for the launch of the new Galaxy Watch 5 line has not yet been announced, but the devices are likely to appear in the second half of the year, between the months of August and September.
