Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2 Leaked in Two Sizes Without Rotating Bezel
The Galaxy Watch Active only hit the market around four months ago alongside the Galaxy S10. It appears that Samsung is already working on a sequel. Contrary to its name, the device is not a fitness product and can be classified as more of a generic smartwatch. Sammobile managed to get their hands on exclusive footage of what appears to be the Galaxy Watch Active 2. Here's a video of the alleged Galaxy Watch 2 in action.
The Galaxy Watch Active 2 will come in two sizes: 40mm and 44mm and none of the variants will feature a rotating bezel. The feature has been highly requested (because it makes life a lot easier) but Samsung has—for reasons known best to them—chosen to ignore users. The Galaxy Watch Active 2 will still resemble its predecessor in many ways. The home/power button is round and the back button has a rectangular shape, and there’s also a red circle around the home/power button. There is even a microphone hole between the home and back keys and what look like speaker grills on the other side
The Galaxy Watch Active 2 will come in two variants; namely LTE and Wi-Fi. The LTE version will have a 340 mAh battery inside and the Wi-Fi model will have a 237 mAh battery. Both devices will come with version 1.5 of One UI. Samsung already updated all their existing smartwatches with OneUI and the Galaxy Watch 2 will ship with the software out of the box.
There is no word about the pricing for the Galaxy Watch Active 2 just yet, but we can expect it to be around the ~$200 to $250 mark like its predecessor. We can expect to make its grand appearance alongside the Galaxy Note 10, which is supposedly releasing on August 7th this year.
