A new Samsung Galaxy Watch is on the way - passes through FCC

Unless details on other models suddenly show up, these are likely the ones that will have the physical rotating bezels. Samsung's recent Watch Active models only have a digital bezel, where swiping along the edges of the screen scrolls the interface.

Previous year the Galaxy Active watches were revealed by Samsung just a few days after they appeared at the FCC so we expect them to arrive in the not-to-distant future.


South Korean tech giant Samsung is planning to launch a new Galaxy Watch soon.

According to DroidLife the Galaxy Watch the smartwatch will arrive in both Wi-Fi and LTE models with all models featuring Bluetooth and Wi-Fi (fancy that). This new watch will be a successor to the Galaxy Watch, not the Active series.


The FCC documents, spotted by Droid-Life, also revealed that the watches will have Gorilla Glass DX protection, 5ATM water resistance, GPS, and LTE.

One major feature that went missing from Samsung's fitness-centric smartwatches of 2019 could however make a spectacular comeback on the company's as-yet-unnamed 2020 expansion of the Galaxy Watch family, which brings us one step closer to solving the branding puzzle. The first two are LTE variants, the 45mm SM-R845U, and the 41mm SM-R855U. Samsung recently announced a blood pressure monitoring app for the Galaxy Watch Active 2, so it's no surprise the upcoming Galaxy Watch will have it. ECG monitoring, on the other hand, is something Samsung has been working on for a while.


With all of the FCC listings and information making its way to the internet and Samsung themselves mentioning "upcoming Galaxy Watch device (s)", it seems an announcement of the upcoming Galaxy Watch is not far off.
