Samsung fans are eagerly waiting for the next generation of smartwatches from the Korean giant. The Galaxy Watch 6 and Watch 6 Classic are expected to be unveiled at the July 27 Unpacked event, along with the new foldable phones. But before that, we have some leaked images of the upcoming devices that give us a glimpse of their design and features.
Galaxy Watch 6
The Galaxy Watch 6 is the successor to the Galaxy Watch 5, which was launched last year. The new model looks similar to its predecessor, but with some subtle changes. The bezels seem to be slimmer and the case appears to be thinner. The watch also has a regular pin buckle strap, unlike the magnetic clasp of the Watch 5.
The Galaxy Watch 6 will reportedly come in two sizes: 40mm and 44mm. It will also feature a sapphire crystal display for durability. The watch will run on Samsung’s One UI 5 Watch, which will bring several new health and fitness features, such as improved sleep tracking, body composition analysis, and personalized heart rate zones. It will also be compatible with Google’s Wear OS 4, which is expected to launch later this year.
The Galaxy Watch 6 may also sport a new Exynos W930 chip, which could improve its performance and battery life. However, a recent report suggested that the wireless charging speed of the watch will remain at 10W, the same as the Galaxy Watch 5.

Galaxy Watch 6 Classic
The Galaxy Watch 6 Classic is the more premium variant of the series. It will bring back the physical rotating bezel that many Samsung fans love and miss. The bezel allows for easy navigation of the watch’s interface and adds a distinctive touch to its design.
The Galaxy Watch 6 Classic will be slightly bigger than the regular model, with two sizes: 43mm and 47mm. The larger size could also mean a larger battery capacity, which would be welcome given the poor battery life of the previous models. The watch will have a metal case and a silicone wristband, with a magnetic clasp.
The Galaxy Watch 6 Classic will share most of the features and specifications of the Galaxy Watch 6, including the display, processor, software, and health functions. It will also support wireless charging at 10W.
The Galaxy Watch 6 and Watch 6 Classic are shaping up to be impressive smartwatches that will offer a lot of functionality and style. Samsung is clearly trying to compete with Google’s Pixel Watch, which has overtaken it in the smartwatch market. The return of the physical rotating bezel is a smart move that will appeal to many loyal Samsung customers.
We will have to wait until July 27 to see the official announcement and pricing of these devices.
