A couple of reports regarding Samsung’s next-generation smartwatch show that it will launch two versions. The two versions will be the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 Pro and Galaxy Watch 5. For this series. The latest report from @iceuniverse claims that the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 Pro will come with a sapphire glass and a titanium alloy case. This should significantly increase the scratch resistance of the smartwatch.
The Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 Pro is a premium smartwatch and it comes with higher specs. Thus, this device may also increase its price. According to reports, the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 Pro with model number SM-R925, will have a large 572 mAh battery. This device has already passed the Korean certification. A 572 mAh battery would be a huge upgrade over the current latest Galaxy Watch. The Galaxy Watch 5 may come in two sizes, while the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro may only come in one.
Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 and Galaxy Watch 4 Classic are the world’s first smartwatches running Wear OS 3.0. Later this year, Samsung will unveil its next-generation Galaxy Watch 5. According to information obtained by SamMobile, the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 will not have a Classic model.
Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 supports body temperature detection
According to ETNews, Samsung will add a body temperature detection function to the Galaxy Watch 5 series. This will help detect early signs of COVID-19, fever, etc., as well as track ovulation cycles. At present, there are some smartwatches on the market that support body temperature detection, but this function sometimes has errors. The skin temperature of the wrist can be strongly influenced by external factors such as sunlight. This eventually makes accurate readings from sensors difficult.
ETNews reports that Samsung has fixed the issue. In fact, body temperature detection could be a theme for Samsung’s wearables this year, as sources say the company is also testing a prototype Galaxy Buds earphones that support body temperature. The prototype will use infrared sensors to track the temperature of the eardrum.
The Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 series will be unveiled in August, about a year away from the Galaxy Watch 4 series. As of now, there is not much information regarding the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 series. We can not tell the upgrades that these smartwatches will bring. However, it appears that the Pro version will pack all the interesting features. In a few month’s, this device will be official and we can get official details. Before then, we have to make do with the available unconfirmed leaks.
