According to a new leak, the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Watch 6 Classic will have a slightly larger screen than its predecessor.
The buzz surrounding Samsung’s next smartwatch is starting to heat up. A recent tweets from renowned leaker Ice Universe (@UniverseIce) has raised expectations, implying that the device will have a larger display and higher resolution.
The Galaxy Watch 3, Galaxy Watch 4 Classic, and Galaxy Watch 5 Pro all have circular 1.4-inch displays. But the Galaxy Watch 6 Classic is expected to have a 1.47-inch screen. An increase of 0.7-inches would potentially provide users with a more immersive and engaging experience.
A larger display allows for easier app and setting navigation, as well as better visibility of notifications and messages. This is especially useful for fitness enthusiasts, who can more easily monitor their stats and progress during workouts.
Furthermore, the larger screen size can accommodate more watch face customization options. It would allow users to more effectively express their personal style and preferences. This could also lead to an increase in the number of third-party apps and widgets designed specifically to take advantage of the increased screen real estate.
The Galaxy Watch 6 Classic’s resolution is also said to have been improved, though exact specifications have not been confirmed. This enhancement may result in crisper, more vibrant visuals, further enhancing the overall user experience.
As far as other expectations for the upcoming generation, the Galaxy Watch 6 Pro is expected to reintroduce the physical rotating bezel. This is a feature many users have been clamoring for on social media.
Users will be able to interact with their smartwatch once again by rotating the bezel in either direction to zoom in or out, select apps, navigate menus, change settings, and more. Furthermore, the physical bezel provides tactile feedback and acts as a buffer to protect the sides of the display.
While the Galaxy Watch 4 and Galaxy Watch 4 Classic have a touch bezel and a solid bezel. The Galaxy Watch 5 Pro does not have one although the non-Pro version has a touch bezel. Samsung appears to be listening to its customers’ preferences for a more “traditional” physical bezel. It is thought to be easier to use, more reliable, and satisfying to interact with.
