The Samsung Galaxy Watch 6 and Watch 6 Classic would incorporate a new chip. Enough to hope for improvements in terms of performance and autonomy.
While the Galaxy Z Flip 5 and Galaxy Z Fold 5 have already been cheerfully treated by numerous leaks, while the Galaxy Tab S9 are starting to run out of secrets before Samsung’s big conference, the watches, namely the Galaxy Watch 6 and 6 Classic, were still very discreet.
Never mind, we make up for it with a complete specifications sheet published by Snoopy Techa leaker on Twitter who has been reliable on Samsung products in the past.
A difference in weight under the hood
In the middle of this somewhat indigestible list, the element that immediately jumps to the eye is undoubtedly the arrival of a new chip. The Exynos W930 would therefore take over from the Exynos W920, used since the Galaxy Watch 4, which would confirm previous leaks. It would be accompanied by 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of storage.
Switching to a new chip is always an important moment for smartwatches, especially those running Wear OS which suffer from battery life issues. Will this new chip allow Samsung to offer a better balance on this point? On the contrary, will the arrival of a new chip unbalance the optimization of the Korean manufacturer? We ignore it for the moment.
Another novelty of weight, it is the case to say it, we learn that the Galaxy Watch 6 would be lighter by 28% compared to the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro and more than 40% lighter than the Galaxy Watch 6 Classic. This would give a weight of 20.6g for the Galaxy Watch 6 and 28.8g for the Galaxy Watch 6 Classic.
The Classic version seems to move away from the basic version to take on the contours of a Pro version. For example, it would include the largest size in the range with a 47 mm model in addition to a 43 mm.
