Stunning Galaxy Watch 5 and 5 Pro renders revealed: Check out Samsung’s next watches
Let’s start with the…
Galaxy Watch 5 Pro
The Galaxy Watch 5 Pro will be the more premium upcoming Samsung smartwatch, positioning itself as a direct descendant of the Galaxy Watch 4 Classic. There’s a pretty distinct difference, though – the new wearable is seemingly ditching the signature rotating bezel that was used on a multitude of Samsung smartwatches throughout the years. It’s sad to see it go as it allowed for some novel interface interaction solutions: rotating the bezel left and right enables you to quickly interact with the watch without having to resort to the touch screen itself, useful during workouts and other use cases.
In its place, Samsung is reportedly going to utilize a so-called “digital bezel”. This one will be an indented capacitive bezel around the display that reportedly emulates the hardware rotating bezel. There’s speculation that this indentation is utilized for better finger accuracy, but it remains to be seen if hardcore Galaxy Watch fans will be hyped about this drastic design change.
Galaxy Watch 5
As mentioned, we should expect the Galaxy Watch 5 Series in early August, possibly on August 10. Prices would probably start at around $250 for the Galaxy Watch 5 and around $350 for the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro, provided that Samsung keeps its pricing strategy from last year. Of course, the reality of the inflation in 2022 and the expected price hikes across the industry are hinting that we should probably expect a slight price hike.
