Decent upgrades are coming
Samsung’s Classic smartwatch design might be back in style this year.
With that in mind, the following figures, while not exactly game-changing by any measure, look quite decent on paper… when put into the proper context. And the best way to do that is naturally to pit them against the Galaxy Watch 5 duo’s battery specs, but also those of the Galaxy Watch 4 lineup:
- Galaxy Watch 6 (40mm) – 300mAh;
- Galaxy Watch 6 (44mm) – 425mAh;
- Galaxy Watch 6 Classic (42mm) – 300mAh;
- Galaxy Watch 6 Classic (46mm) – 425mAh;
- Galaxy Watch 5 (40mm) – 284mAh;
- Galaxy Watch 5 (44mm) – 410mAh;
- Galaxy Watch 5 Pro (45mm) – 590mAh;
- Galaxy Watch 4 (40mm) – 247mAh;
- Galaxy Watch 4 (44mm) – 361mAh;
- Galaxy Watch 4 Classic (42mm) – 247mAh;
- Galaxy Watch 4 Classic (46mm) – 361mAh.
Will there be a Galaxy Watch 6 Pro as well?
While it’s far too early to even try to answer that question with anything more than a minimal degree of confidence, what we can definitely say is that it would be a crying shame for Samsung to ditch its Pro smartwatch after one iteration.
The Galaxy Watch 5 Pro (pictured here) clearly deserves a big-battery sequel.
Of course, we already know what device will win that trophy in late 2023 and early 2024, but an affordable Galaxy Watch 6 duo, a slightly costlier Galaxy Watch 6 Classic pair with a revived rotating bezel, and a presumably ultra-high-end Galaxy Watch 6 Pro with a fitting price tag could give Samsung a better chance than ever to close the gap to its arch-rival and undefeated heavyweight champion of the smartwatch world.
If it’s indeed coming, the Galaxy Watch 6 Pro might follow the examples of the Watch 6 and Watch 6 Classic and improve the already colossal 590mAh battery capacity of the single-size Watch 5 Pro by 4 or 5 percent, ending with a 620mAh or so cell size that could deliver one of the absolute greatest endurance scores out there. Unfortunately, that’s all wishful thinking for the time being, and we’ll have to wait at least a while longer to see if our assumptions will prove close to the commercial reality.
