Finally, Samsung has officially disclosed that its smartwatches are actively preparing to enter the new era of AI via the forthcoming latest One UI 6 Watch update. Here is a list of eligible Galaxy Watches for the One UI 6 Watch beta update.

By the end of this year, Samsung will make the One UI 6 Watch available, with the beta program for select Galaxy Watch users starting in June. The brand stated that only a limited number of users will have access to the beta program. It seems that the AI-enabled One UI Watch update should debut with the Galaxy Watch 7 series.

However, older-generation smartwatches are expected to get a sneak preview in June thanks to this upcoming beta program. Samsung stated the One UI 6 Watch beta program will be available for a limited number of users in South Korea and the United States. If jumping on last year’s One UI 5 Watch beta program, it appears that the beta firmware would not come to any other markets throughout the testing period.

It will likely remain exclusive to the USA and Korea. The Galaxy smartwatch owners are eagerly waiting for the next One UI 6 Watch beta, which will be available for all Wear OS smartwatches, including the Galaxy Watch 4, 5, and 6 lineups. The brand unveils that One UI 6 Watch beta firmware will be available for the smartwatches mentioned below:

  • Galaxy Watch 4 Classic BT/LTE
  • Galaxy Watch 5 BT/LTE
  • Galaxy Watch 5 Pro BT/LTE
  • Galaxy Watch 6 BT/LTE

However, a few features might not be available for older models, and they might not boast each Galaxy AI tool. Samsung has yet to officially confirm what AI novelties will arrive with the One UI 6 Watch, but it will be interesting to see.

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.
