Samsung Galaxy Watch6 lineup set to feature larger batteries than Watch5 series
Since the Galaxy Watch 4 came out in 2021, Samsung’s Galaxy Watch line has been the best of Wear OS. Now, rumors are starting to spread about the company’s next generation. A previous rumor said that the Galaxy Watch 6 might have a bigger battery, and now a new leak shows precisely what you can expect to be better.
This year, the Galaxy Watch 6 series will likely have four models, which is one more than the Galaxy Watch 5 series last year. The “Classic” style, which has a rotating bezel and is slightly bigger than Samsung’s standard smartwatch, is rumored to return.
SamMobile says that a Chinese regulatory board has leaked Galaxy Watch 6 and Galaxy Watch 6 Classic listings. Both watches come in two sizes: the Watch 6 in 40mm and 44mm and the Classic model in 42mm and 46mm. There are sizes of batteries listed for each size, and these are their typical capacities:
- Galaxy Watch 6 40mm: 300mAh
- 300mAh Galaxy Watch 6 Classic 42mm
- Galaxy Watch 6 44mm: 425mAh
- 425mAh for the Galaxy Watch 6 Classic 46mm
Compared to the Galaxy Watch 5, this is about a 5% improvement on each model. On the other hand, those who upgrade from the Galaxy Watch 4 to the Watch 6 will get a 20% improvement, which will significantly affect battery life.
On the other hand, the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro had a 590mAh battery, so this would be a step-down. It has yet to be determined if a Galaxy Watch 6 Pro with the same battery capacity is in the works or if Samsung will even use that name.
