Samsung Galaxy Watch 2’s secret weapon against Apple Watch 6 leaked

The Samsung Galaxy Watch 2 may revive one of the most beloved features of the original Galaxy Watch, according to the source behind most of the Galaxy Watch 2 leaks we’ve seen so far. And that could be bad news for the Apple Watch 6.

SamMobile reports that sources confirmed the Galaxy Watch 2 will have a physical bezel, which we believed Samsung ditched after debuting the slender Galaxy Watch Active and Galaxy Watch Active 2.

In the time since the first Galaxy Watch arrived and landed our list of the best smartwatches in 2018, Samsung released two generations of its fitness-oriented Active wearables without rotating bezels. Although we’ve seen little more than a FCC filing for a new lifestyle Galaxy Watch, it seems likely that this wearable is on the way (and bringing back the defining feature) based on the recent uptick in leaks.

When we reviewed the first Galaxy Watch, we found the rotating bezel clever and useful. Spinning the dial proved a great alternative to swiping or trying to poke at something on Samsung’s Tizen OS with our finger. For example, we could rotate the dial, which has a satisfying clicking mechanism, to navigate between menu screens.

According to an FCC certificate, the Galaxy Watch 2 will also come in a 45-millimeter stainless steel case, Gorilla Glass DX display, 5ATM rating water resistance, military standard durability and on-board GPS. It’s possible there is a larger variant, and a titanium one, too.

We know that both rumored Galaxy Watch 2 models will offer LTE, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity as well. There will probably be less costly configurations available to purchase without  LTE support, though.

As for a release date, it appears a summer debut alongside the Galaxy Fold 2 and Galaxy Note 20 lineup makes the most sense. It would help steal some thunder from the Apple Watch 6 , which is expected to introduce a more competitive battery life and SpO2 monitor in the fall. With MacRumors reporting that the next Apple Watch may miss its much-anticipated microLED upgrade this year, 2020 could be Samsung’s year to shine in the wearable arena.

Wow, ¡qué gran experiencia tuve con ustedes! Pedí un iPhone de Brasil y estoy muy impresionado con el envío rápido, el producto en sí y el regalo Apple Watch que vino con él. Fue muy agradable ver un toque tan personalizado.

Not sure why there rating is so low on here. They always go above and beyond if there is an issue and I would say they are the best company to deal with online 5 star

I use Fone Zone for years now and never had any issues, I always found customer service very good. However this time everything changed. I ordered a little Samsung for my sons birthday specifically. Was waiting for over a week for it to be dispatched but noticed nothing was happening. I contacted Fone Zone to check up on it the day before it was due to arrive and they email me that my order was cancelled due to stock availability.
