The new Wear OS 3 is still only available on Samsung smartwatches, which were developed in collaboration with Google. A fresh source claims that Samsung is getting ready to build on that with the Galaxy Watch 5 series, which will ditch the Classic look and include a new Wear OS overlay.
Samsung is preparing the Galaxy Watch 5 series sans the Classic design that included the lineup’s famous revolving bezel, according to a report from SamMobile .
Samsung introduced the rotating bezel in the Gear series years ago to much acclaim and has continued to offer it ever since. The brand’s initial attempt at a smartwatch without the feature was the Galaxy Watch Active, which was followed by the Watch Active 2. With the Galaxy Watch 4, Samsung advanced the bezel-less design even further by moving the spinning bezel to the Classic design.
At this moment, it’s unclear if Samsung intends to completely do away with the rotating bezel from this forthcoming series. There’s a significant likelihood that the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro, which has been speculated for a while, will still include the feature.
Regardless, this rumor makes it obvious that Samsung will only have the Galaxy Watch 5 and Galaxy Watch 5 Pro variants available later this year. The basic Watch 5 will come in two sizes, according to the rumor, while the Pro might only provide one, most likely a large version considering recent battery leaks.
In addition, this rumor indicates that Samsung would be updating One UI Watch, its Wear OS 3 overlay, with this new generation. That isn’t too surprising, but it’s probably safe to conclude that this won’t be a complete overhaul. According to prior trends, Samsung only regularly updates the software on its smartwatches, usually following an upgrade to its Android skin.
