The Galaxy Watch FE is listed on Amazon, with pricing and release dates ahead of the official launch

Published

Samsung is close to debuting the latest Fan Edition smartwatch edition, the Galaxy Watch FE, at the Galaxy Unpacked event in July. Finally, the pricing of the watch leaked via an Amazon listing. 

Even before any official announcement or launch, leaks and rumors have already revealed the next-generation smartwatch’s specs, features, and design. The new leaks reveal the price of the upcoming Galaxy Watch FE based on an Amazon listing. If the new reports are to be believed, the Galaxy Watch FE will be available in three color options, as it has been listed in three color options on Amazon. The color options are mentioned below: 

  • Black, silver, and pink gold

Reportedly, by analyzing the listing on different pages, it seems that the forthcoming Galaxy Watch FE will cost €199, which is approximately $215. However, this time also, the pricing in the US will be lower as compared to the conversion rate, as has always been the case. By this prospect, it would cost $199 in the US, or maybe even lower. The watch will only be available in one measurement variant, which is 40mm. 

The pricing looks convincing since the 40mm model of the non-FE model was priced at $300, which could boost the forthcoming Galaxy Watch 7. It is expected that the brand could introduce some initial offers that will make the pricing more affordable. The reason behind this seems to be that the Galaxy Watch 6 just costs €189, so obviously customers will buy the FE when they can grab a fresh variant at an even more affordable price than the FE variant.

It’s already been reported that the Galaxy Watch FE is the rebranded version of the Galaxy Watch 4 with wider bezels. The current listing doesn’t reveal the specs apart from the watch size, dimensions, and in-box content. As per the listing, the watch will weigh 26.6 grams and come in 40 x 10 x 39 mm dimensions. 

Reportedly, the Galaxy Watch FE could feature a 1.2-inch Super AMOLED 40mm display and be powered by the Exynos W920 Dual Core 1.18 GHz. The memory package could count as 1.5GB of RAM and 16GB of ROM and will run on the Wear OS 4 One UI Watch 5. It could have a 247 mAh battery. The giant could offer some convenient features such as magnetic wireless charging, water resistance up to 50 meters, an aluminum body, water certification up to 5 ATMs, and IP68/MMIL-STD-810H.
