The ultimate puzzle piece, pertaining to the batteries powering the soon-to-be-unleashed Galaxy Watch 6 series, has been unearthed. Courtesy of a listing available on an online platform, belonging to a regulatory body located in China, the battery capacities for both the standard Galaxy Watch 6 and Watch 6 Classic, in all of their sizes, have now been revealed.
This recently-acquired information indicates that the two largest models within the Galaxy Watch 6 lineup, namely, the 44mm Galaxy Watch 6 (SM-R940/SM-R945) and the 46mm Galaxy Watch 6 Classic (SM-R960/SM-R965), will be equipped with the same battery configuration. Specifically, the battery has a rated capacity of 417 mAh, alongside a typical capacity of 425 mAh. With the exception of the hypothetical Watch 6 Pro, the entire series has an identical battery configuration.
There is presently no additional data on the rumored Galaxy Watch 6 Pro or its battery capacity – assuming this device is indeed in the works. It’s possible that earlier reports referring to the Watch 6 Pro were in fact describing the Classic variant, meaning that there may not be a Pro version released this year. Of all the rumors surrounding the upcoming Galaxy Watch 6 series, the potential reappearance of the physical rotating bezel is perhaps the most fascinating. Supposedly, the release of the Galaxy Watch 6 Classic will mark the return of this feature that was absent from last year’s lineup after Samsung introduced the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro.
Although information regarding a release date is currently unavailable, an informed prediction would suggest that Samsung is planning to unveil the Galaxy Watch 6 series in the August-September timeframe at the Unpacked event, alongside the Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Z Flip 5, as well as the Galaxy Tab S9 tablet lineup. There is no information yet on whether the Korean technology giant plans to announce a new set of wireless earbuds later this year, but we will keep you informed of any developments.
