Galaxy Watch 6 Is Reportedly Approved By the FCC

With August right around the corner, Samsung is set to reveal its next generation of Galaxy smart watches (or so we can expect). There has been a lot of rumors regarding the next Galaxy Watch (GW), but nothing too solid, or exciting. However, it has just been reported that the GW6 has been given the green signal by the FCC.

The Federal Communications Commision‘s listing confirms a lot of stuff. For one, the Watch 6 will come in two sizes, 40mm and 44mm. The smaller 40mm variant has the model number SM-R930, while the larger 44mm version is identified as SM-R940.

Also, you can expect the usual from the connectivity side of things: Bluetooth, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n/a, NFC, and GNSS. Also, the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 series, the Watch 6 will support wireless charging (comes as no surprise). The wireless charger for the Watch 6, with the model number ER-OR900, is expected to be the same one used for the Watch 5 series.

In addition to the Samsung Galaxy Watch 6, there are rumors of the Galaxy Watch 6 Classic. Recently leaked renders of this model indicate that it will feature rotating bezels, same as of the Watch 4 Classic. The Watch 6 Classic is said to have a 1.47-inch Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 470 × 470 pixels.

Here’s what we know so far with regards to the specifications for the watch:

SpecsGalaxy Watch 6 Classic
Models (Size, Weight, Prices)43mm / 47mm, Bluetooth/Bluetooth+cellular versions
Processor, RAM, StorageExynos W930 chip
SoftwareOne UI 5 Watch / Wear OS
Battery and Charging425mAh battery, 9W wireless charging
SensorsHR, Afib tracking, blood oxygen, altimeter, etc
New featuresRotating hardware bezels

From the looks of it, the Galaxy Watch 6 Classic is shaping up to be the successor to the Galaxy Watch 4 Classic, not the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro.

The Pro version of the Galaxy Watch lacks some core features of the Classic models. For example, the Pro version does not have a rotating bezel, which is a popular feature of the Classic watches. The Galaxy Watch 6 Classic is also expected to have a longer battery life than the Pro version.

The battery will surely be an important component to look out for since this has for long, been an issue for the Galaxy Watches, that undermines it, when put in direct competition with the Apple Watch.

While the FCC listing doesn’t spill all the beans on detailed specifications, we can expect more information to emerge from other certification platforms in the coming weeks. So, keep your eyes open for updates as we will make sure to keep you updated on all developments as new information becomes available.
