Samsung’s rumored Galaxy Watch 6 may deliver some vital design modifications to the sequence if the most recent rumors are to be believed. The information this time round is that the machine’s watch face may have a smaller bezel to extend the show’s dimension.
This data comes from famend business leaker Ice Universe on Twitter (opens in new tab) who claims the display dimension on the Galaxy Watch 6 is “100% confirmed” to be 1.47 inches, up from the Galaxy Watch 5’s 1.4-inch show. In consequence, the decision will subsequently be “improved”, resulting in a greater “display proportion”. When requested on Twitter if there may also be a better-performing Professional model, Ice Universe said there will likely be Galaxy Watch 6 Traditional mannequin however did not elaborate.
You might be questioning, “Does seven-hundredths of an inch actually make that large of an influence?” It type of does, really. Larger screens imply simpler interactivity, in any case.
We even have cause to suspect Samsung is taking a web page out of Apple’s smartwatch playbook. For instance, for those who evaluate the now-aging Apple Watch 6 and 2021’s Watch 7, you will discover each gadgets are essentially the identical, at the very least internally. The most important distinction is the latter has a 20 % bigger display at 1.9 inches versus the Apple Watch 6’s 1.78-inch show (the Apple Watch 8 additionally has a 1.9-inch show). A comparatively minor distinction; nevertheless for those who evaluate the 2 side-by-side, the Watch 7 show is noticeably bigger and apps look much less squished on it.
Granted, the scale distinction between the 2 Apple Watches is bigger than the purported Galaxy Watch enhance. Nevertheless it’s nonetheless, probably a good improve and you’ll’t beat having higher decision. Our major concern is the battery life, although Samsung might have an answer for that. In line with latest reviews, the Galaxy Watch 6 may have both a 300mAh or a 425mAh battery to feed the extra power-hungry display. As for different design modifications, Ice Universe stated back in February (opens in new tab) that the Galaxy Watch 6 may have a curved glass display much like the Google Pixel Watch.
Samsung, up to now, has but to disclose something official about its new smartwatch so take this data with a grain of salt. Hopefully, the corporate resurrects the rotating bezel as seen on the Galaxy Watch 3. A launch date for the Galaxy Watch 6 stays a thriller; though if historical past is any indicator, anticipate an August launch.
