Galaxy Watch Ultra Name Confirmed Via new Certification

Published

Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Watch 7 series is a hot topic among fans since the back-to-back leaks reveal something different from the previous ones. A new report says Samsung would call its most premium smartwatch the Galaxy Watch X

Previously, it was reported that Samsung was setting up for the next generation, the Galaxy Watch 7 Ultra, which could compete with the Apple Watch Ultra series. At the next moment, the report claimed that the giant would call it the most premium smartwatch, the Galaxy Watch X. However, the leak appears wrong, and Samsung may use the Ultra branding for its upcoming premium smartwatch. 

If the TDRA certification database (via MySmartPrice) is to be believed, Samsung will call the forthcoming premium smartwatch by the name Galaxy Watch Ultra, without the numerical number ‘7’. Somehow, these leaks are directly hinting that the Korean brand is dedicated to following Apple’s naming scheme for premium smartwatches. 

The TDRA certification document showcases a model number for the Galaxy Watch Ultra: SM-L705F. This aligns with several previous reports, and it is increasingly visible that the Korean brand is looking forward to using the Ultra branding for its next-generation wearable. The device’s FCC certification reveals model numbers for the global variant SM-L705F and SM-L705U for the USA variant. 

Although it features Wi-Fi b/g/n, which is quite disappointing since it doesn’t support a more modern Wi-Fi 5 standard, The FCC certification database reveals that the Galaxy Watch Ultra was tested with a wireless charger with model number EP-0L300. It was attached to a 10W (5V and 2A) power source. This seems lower than the wattage found for the Galaxy Watch 7’s 15W charger. Both smartwatches only support 10W wireless charging, but the giant used a 15W power brick with the vanilla Galaxy Watch 7. 

The upcoming Galaxy smartwatch is expected to feature Samsung’s first 3nm chipset, and it is rumored to be named the Exynos W1000. It will also have 32GB of internal storage and a much bigger loudspeaker.

Galaxy Watch 7 Ultra Could be called ‘Galaxy Watch X’ Increased water resistance and improved battery

The Samsung Galaxy Watch 7 series is close to taking the floor at the Galaxy Unpacked event in July, which is expected to bring three variants, including a premium called “Ultra,” but it may not be Samsung’s final name chosen; potentially, it will be called “Samsung Galaxy Watch X.” 

Samsung Galaxy Watch X’ Likely New Name for Galaxy Watch 7 Ultra with Key Upgrades

Initially, it was reported that the forthcoming Galaxy Watch 7 series could bring three variants, including standard, classic, and pro, but now the new report is unfolding a different story. If the report is to be believed, the premium model ‘Ultra’ within the Galaxy Watch 7 series may not be Samsung’s final name chosen; however, most probably it will be called ‘Samsung Galaxy Watch X.’ 

This upcoming Samsung Watch is designed to compete in a direct challenge to the Apple Watch Ultra series; exactly for this reason, the Korean giant may have decided to dispense with the word “Ultra” dedicatedly to avoid confusion and, above all, to further differentiate itself from its rivals. The competition will be particularly fierce, with Samsung looking forward to offering increasingly advanced features and superior performance. 

For the next-generation Galaxy Watch 7, diving will be a key factor. Rumors suggest that the new Galaxy Watch X will be water resistant up to 100 meters, with the same water resistance ratings as the Apple Watch Ultra. 

Water resistance is referred to as pressure classification, measured in atmospheres (ATM), so the actual depth that can be reached without lowering is 40 meters in the case of the Apple Watch and most probably also for Samsung’s Watch. The upcoming Watch X is also supposed to have an improved battery life. On the comparison side, the Galaxy Watch 6 Classic claims up to 40 hours of battery life, the Watch 5 Pro up to 80 hours, and the Apple Watch Ultra runs up to 36 hours. 

The battery life improvement is expected due to the Exynos W1000 chips, the first 3 nm chip from Samsung. Water resistance The Galaxy Watch X is also supposed to have a better life than its inline counterpart, the Watch 5 Pro, for at least 80 hours. This watch will be Samsung’s first watch to be built based on a 3nm chip, but it appears, at least compared to the Classic model, that the 578mAh batteries have increased in size. 

The rumors indicate that both the name and other details of the Galaxy Watch X will be presented on June 24 instead of the previously reported July 10. However, the watch will not be alone, since the report is hinting that the Galaxy Ring and the next-generation foldable phones could also join the watch for the official launch.
