A new listing from the FCC reveals that the next Galaxy Watch 6 may not charge faster than last year’s model. While Samsung is used to releasing its wearables in August, some rumors suggest that this year’s Galaxy Watch 6 could be launched a little earlier. The release date will most likely match that of Samsung’s Galaxy Z Flip 5 and Z Fold 5 series, i.e. late July.
Indeed, the Galaxy Watch 6 and Watch 6 Classic are set to debut alongside Samsung’s new foldable devices. Along with the new release, Samsung is expected to introduce a new Exynos chip, according to other reports, and the company is also expected to revive the spinning ring on the Classic model.
Several things have become clear with the passage of the Galaxy Watch 6 to the FCC list. For better or worse, one of them is that the new watch won’t charge any faster than the Galaxy Watch 5. Several serial numbers have also been made public, but it’s still too early to tell. to which model will correspond such or such number.
However, SM-R930 and SM-R940 will likely be the Classic and standard models, while SM-R935 and SM-R945 may be the LTE versions of the Watch 6. The listing also mentions Bluetooth 5.3 , support for NFC and, of course, Wi-Fi.
According to rumours, upcoming smartwatches will be a solid upgrade over the Galaxy Watch 5 series. We don’t know how much yet. What we do know for now is that the Watch 6 will feature a wireless charger with a maximum output of 9W. The rotating ring, a much-missed feature, will also make a return to the classic model.
Other expected improvements
So far, Samsung has consistently pushed the boundaries of innovation with its “wearables“. Last year’s Watch 5 and Watch 5 Pro offered consumers a handful of impressive features in a sleek design.
With few dramatic differences between the models, mostly in terms of battery life, the Classic and Pro versions both proved to be a hit. Following the release of these two wearables, the company saw an increase in sales that may not be as flattering as Apple’s, but still worth mentioning.
