FCC Documents Reveal Specs For Next Generation of Galaxy Watch: Military Grade Protection, Two Sizes & Rotating Dial

The Samsung Galaxy Watch series is by far one of the best Android Smartwatches out there. The build quality and the style of the watch is actually quite compelling. While the Apple Watch is quite the complete smartwatch, it is simply restricted to iPhones. Therefore, Android users are left to a bunch of brands, out of which, only some are “complete” products. There is a new version coming soon too. According to an article from 9to5Google, Samsung has gone through the FCC for a smartwatch which includes certain images and angles of the upcoming device.

The article contains a lot of information about the device. According to them, Droid-Life confirmed that they had gone through documents from the FCC which contained two watch designs. A 45mm one and a 41mm model. These would come in both an LTE version and a GPS only version. The article states:

These documents show off the LTE variants of these new watches, carrying the model numbers SM-R845 and SM-R855.

The model numbers really add up as from the previous form of models which confirms that we may see these variants. The watch would be a sturdy one, giving military-grade protection, gorilla glass on the front and water resistance up to 5ATM.

The article adds that additionally, SamMobile offered a feature leak from their side. According to them, the device would have a rotating bezel to, obviously, navigate through the menu for Wear OS. People at 9to5Google are unsure whether this watch would be launched this year or not but the signs may point towards an August announcement. This would be in tandem with the Note 20 series launch, which seems like the appropriate time.
