Rumors swirl that Samsung could be making major design changes for its next device. It is said that the watch face will feature a slimmer bezel, allowing for increased display size.
Industry leaker Ice Universe confirmed the size of the Galaxy Watch 6 screen will be larger than usual at 1.47 inches, meaning its resolution has been enhanced and its “screen proportion” raised. When asked if a Pro version might be available, Ice Universe replied that there will be an affordable Classic model available as well but provided no further information.
Have you ever pondered if seven-hundredths of an inch makes a difference? It certainly does, as larger screens provide for an enhanced user experience.
Samsung appears to have borrowed an idea from Apple’s smartwatch. Comparing the Watch 7 with its 2021 counterpart, one would find they are similar internally; the main distinction being the larger display in the Watch 7, measuring 1.9 inches as opposed to 1.78 inches on the Apple Watch 6. When comparing them side-by-side, one can easily notice how applications appear more spacious on the Samsung model.
The size difference between Apple Watches and the purported Galaxy Watch 6 upgrade is considerable. Nonetheless, it could still be seen as a positive improvement with better resolution. Our main concern with regards to battery life remains unchanged: either 300mAh or 425mAh capacity will power its energy-demanding display. Furthermore, speculation suggests that the Galaxy Watch 6 may feature a curved glass screen similar to what was seen with the original Apple Watch.
Though Samsung has yet to officially confirm the details of their upcoming smartwatch, let us not put too much stock in this information. Hopefully the iconic rotating bezel will return. It remains uncertain when exactly the Galaxy Watch 6 will be available; if history is any guide, expect it sometime around August.
