Samsung Galaxy Watch 6 Classic Astro Edition: What’s new

Published

on


The limited edition Galaxy Watch model that Samsung unveiled this time, however, is pretty distinctive, and it can only be purchased in selected nations. The first ever limited-edition Galaxy Watch created by Samsung specifically for the MENA (Middle East and North Africa) area is the Galaxy Watch 6 Classic Astro Edition. A compass on the dial pays homage to the antiquated instrument while also evoking an astrolabe through its design and software features. The astrolabe was chosen as a symbol of the area’s history of innovative and scientific accomplishments, particularly in the fields of time, astronomy, and mathematics.

An astrolabe is an astronomical tool for measuring the altitude of the sun or stars as well as addressing other astronomical and navigational issues. The solar tracker honors the sun’s key place in the astrolabe’s observations of astronomy by stimulating the sun’s daily journey starting from sunrise to sunset. The movements of the sun and moon can be monitored by the users from their wrists. The Galaxy Watch 6 Classic Astro Edition is only offered in a 47 mm size, which includes a black Astro bezel, an extra fabric strap, and Astro Edition collectibles. Also, access to Samsung’s VIP promotional store is granted.

The watch intensifies inspiration from the ancient tool while fusing historical accuracy and contemporary elegance with the integration of cutting-edge technology that shows time, direction, and solar and lunar phases. The United Arab Emirates, Kuwait, Qatar, Bahrain, Oman, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Egypt, Jordan, Turkey, and Morocco are some of the MENA territories where the special edition of the smartwatch will be sold. Interested people can order the gadget from the Samsung online shop, and the company states that local branches will announce the price and availability.

Omar Saheb, Regional Marketing Director at Samsung MENA, shared, Samsung’s Galaxy Watch 6 Classic Astro Edition is a testament and tribute to the Middle East’s innovators and their historical prominence in the fields of mathematics, science, and innovation, while simultaneously setting the stage for the region’s future pioneers.”

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.

One UI 6 Watch Beta Update Could Be Just Around the Corner

Published

Samsung started stepping towards its next major software update for its Galaxy wearables and brought efficiency and health-tracking improvements, as it is now gearing up to release the One UI 6 Watch Beta update based on the latest version, Wear OS 5. 

It’s not so long since Google unveiled its Wear OS 5 for smartwatches, and now, within a few days, Samsung has started working on the next update to enhance the smartwatch experience. Meanwhile, for the South Korean market, the Korean giant has listed One UI 6 Watch Beta on its website, which hints at its fast approach to release. 

Samsung Begins Preparations for One UI 6 Watch Beta Update

The forthcoming update is most probably expected to be based on Wear OS 5, and it could be released sometime in the next few weeks. The Korean brand started internal development of the One UI 6 Watch a couple of days ago. This is being speculated by a post on X shared by a tipster who hinted that the One UI 6 Watch beta is incoming. 

One UI 6 Watch Beta Update

Revising the previous release, the Korean giant released the Wear OS 4-based One UI 5 Watch Beta update in early June 2023. Based on these metrics, it is expected that this time it could release the One UI 6 Watch Beta update to eligible Galaxy Watches in early June 2024. Wear OS 5 is based on Android 14, and the One UI 5 Watch will also be based on Android 14. This new version of Wear OS is expected to improve battery life through process optimization in Doze Mode. 

One UI 6 Watch Beta Update

Smartwatches with Wear OS 5 offer 20% longer battery life while running a marathon, as Google revealed. It also makes the Watch Face Format, developed by Samsung, the default format, which means most third-party watch faces should now help smartwatches get longer battery life. Some other features are also expected from One UI 6 Watch, such as support for passkeys, the ability to restore passkeys from the cloud, a simpler login experience, and many more.

Galaxy Watch 7 Ultra’s Hint at Major Design Changes

Published

By


Samsung is close to adding a new lineup to its wearable smartwatch family soon, with the title Galaxy Watch 7 Series. Now the renders of the upcoming Galaxy Watch 7 Ultra hint that the watch will appear in a squarish design with more details. 

At the next Galaxy Unpacked event in July 2024, the Galaxy Watch 7 Ultra will make its debut. Now Smartprix with the collaboration with OnLeaks reported the exclusive 5K renders of the Galaxy Watch 7 Ultra. Let’s take a closer look at what new novelties are in line for the upcoming movie.

The Galaxy Watch 7 Ultra is reported to bring some interesting design changes, including the most prominent one: a squarish look, a third physical button, larger speakers, and a few expected watch band charges. A glance at the Galaxy Watch 7 Ultra renders unveiled a squarish outer frame around the circular display, along with a shiny rotating bezel that doesn’t appear to blend very well with the matte frame. However, even after this change, the watch will stand on a rounded, circulatory display, ensuring that the core visual appeal remains known to long-time users and that the UI doesn’t have to be rebuilt for a square display. 

It’s reported that the Galaxy Watch 7 will feature a 1.5-inch display with slightly larger dimensions of 47 x 47.4 x 16.4 mm. However, the reason behind this design choice remains unclear, but it does make the Watch 7 Ultra bulkier. The bezel of the watch is marked with subtle lines and minimalistic indicators, a departure from the numeric indicators found on the Watch 6 Classic bezel. 

A noticeable change is also reported, which is a third circular button housed in the middle on the right side of the watch. This new button, which lies close to the traditional two, could offer new functionalities to the Galaxy Watch, the same as the Action Button placed on the Apple Watch Ultra. 

A new alignment of health sensors will appear in a circular array of individual circles and squares, opposite to the seamless ring of sensors found on the Galaxy Watch 6 Classic. Notably, the Galaxy Watch 7 Ultra retains the temperature sensor, but it has been placed a bit upwards towards the center. The watch bands also appear to integrate more seamlessly with the watch body, offering a cleaner look. Also alongside the sensor array, two button-like elements are placed at the top and the bottom. 

These could be disconnecting the watch bands, a design shift from the predecessor Galaxy Watch 6 Classic, where the buttons were on the watch bands themselves. The upcoming watch will also have a larger speaker grill, which is positioned to the left of the watch and is noticeably larger than those on the current Galaxy Watch models. 

Tiny ‘holes’ on the Galaxy Watch 7 Ultra seem like microphones. Samsung also seems to be going full-on with the mic and audio experience on the Galaxy Watch 7 Ultra. The previous reports already suggested that the Galaxy Watch 7 series will have a new chipset, charge 50% faster than its predecessor, and finally bring blood sugar monitoring
