Samsung has released five generations of smartwatches in the Galaxy Watch series, and it seems like it is already time for another one, the Galaxy Watch 6. Samsung fans are excited to see what the next iteration of the Watch has in store for them. In this article, we will take a look at just that. We will discuss everything we know about the Galaxy Watch 6.
When can we expect Galaxy Watch 6 to be released?
- The Samsung Galaxy Watch 6 might be released in August 2023.
There is no official information on when the Galaxy Watch 6 will be released. However, we can surely make predictions based on Samsung’s record.
Samsung has been known to release new smartwatches every year in August, except for the Galaxy Watch Active, which was announced in February 2019 and released in March of the same year. Therefore, the Galaxy Watch 6 is expected to be announced in August 2023, following the company’s release pattern.
Galaxy Watch 6 Expected Specifications
Regarding design and specs, the latest generation of the Galaxy Watch series did not bring a significant change in design. Samsung will likely deliver similar aesthetics and impressive specifications in the Galaxy Watch 6. We can expect the Galaxy Watch 6 in multiple sizes with the same circular case and interchangeable quick-release bands.
Moreover, there have been rumours that Samsung may bring microLED displays to the Galaxy Watch 6 lineup. However, the technology is not expected to be ready for an August launch so it may debut with the Galaxy Watch 7 instead.
As for the battery, the Galaxy Watch 6 could get a larger battery this time. According to a report by GalaxyClub, the Galaxy Watch 6 series is getting a boost in battery size. The smartwatch will be available in 40mm and 44mm sizes.
The 40mm variant of the Galaxy Watch 6 is expected to have a 300mAh battery which is a decent upgrade over the 284mAh battery on the 40mm Galaxy Watch 5. The larger 44mm variant is expected to have a much bigger 425mAh battery which is a significant upgrade over the 340mAh on the 44mm Galaxy Watch 5.
Regarding health and fitness features, we can expect all the existing features available on the Galaxy Watch 5, plus some additional features. We can also expect to see some exclusive Pro model features make their way to the standard Galaxy Watch 6.
Galaxy Watch 6 Price Speculation
- The Galaxy Watch 6 might be priced at $279.
As expected, there is no official information regarding the price of the Galaxy Watch 6. However, we can make some assumptions based on the pricing of the previous generations of the Galaxy Watch.
If we look at just last year, the Galaxy Watch 5 was launched at $279 for the base 40mm variant. This was already $30 more expensive than its predecessor, the Galaxy Watch 4. Since Samsung already bumped the price last year, they will unlikely bump it again. Therefore, we can expect the price to remain the same, i.e., $279.
Overall, the Galaxy Watch 6 is a decent upgrade to its predecessor. Its sleek design, advanced features, and impressive specs should make it an excellent smartwatch for tech enthusiasts and fitness enthusiasts alike. We can’t wait to see what Samsung has in store for us with this incredible device. What do you think of the Galaxy Watch 6? Let us know in the comments section below.
