With the Galaxy Watch 5, Samsung wants to continue conquering the smartwatch market. The Galaxy Watch 4 and Watch 4 Classic laid the foundation, because Samsung switched to the Google operating system Wear OS 3.0. Now the hardware is also said to be significantly better, but an insider dampens the anticipation.

Insider: Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 will be a visual disappointment

We recently learned that Samsung will no longer re-launch the Galaxy Watch 4 Classic as the Galaxy Watch 5 Classic. The most important feature of this smartwatch was a rotating bezel. Both the Galaxy Watch 5 and the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro will do without it. The Pro model in particular is not supposed to look particularly nicesays a well-known insider who has probably already seen the watch:

According to him, the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 should become “uglier”. It could even become the “ugliest smartwatch by a smartphone manufacturer”. According to him, the gap between the Galaxy Watch 5 and Apple Watch will continue to grow. In a second tweet he explains his statements. Accordingly, the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro will be leaked soon, so you can see for yourself how wide the frame around the screen has become. Without a rotating bezel, the watch is said to be “not aesthetically pleasing”..

The comparison with the Apple Watch 7 in particular should not flatter the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro. Apple has recently made the frames around the screen much smaller, giving you almost a full-surface display. Samsung is said not to have done that well with the new smartwatch.

The Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 gives a preview of the Galaxy Watch 5:

When will we see the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 Pro?

On August 10, 2022, Samsung is scheduled to hold an unpacked event where both the Galaxy Watch 5 and the new folding phones Galaxy Z Flip 4 and Fold 4 will be officially presented. However, as the insider claims, the smartwatch will be revealed beforehand by a leak. So the next few weeks will be exciting.
