The successor to one of Apple Watch’s main rivals, Samsung’s Galaxy Watch, was announced today by the Federal Communications Commission ( FCC),media reported. The new watch looks very similar to the original, but it has a brand new stainless steel shell and a brand new Gorilla Glass DX upper protective glass pane.

The Samsung Galaxy Watch (2020) will have a 45mm size option — it could be one of two sizes — and will have multiple versions to choose from. Versions of the FCC’s records released this week suggest that the Galaxy Watch may have a built-in connection and do not require a connected smartphone. The connection is estimated to be LTE and unlikely to be 5G, mainly because there is currently no data in the smartwatch that is faster than 4G LTE.
This watch will be certified with 5 ATM waterproofing. This means it can be waterproof for 10 minutes at a depth of 50 meters. The wearer can perform low-speed, shallow-water motion.
In addition, the Samsung Galaxy Watch will support Bluetooth connectivity (EDR and BLE), so Bluetooth 4.0 or later may be supported. Wireless connections that do not support mobile data versions will have Wi-Fi a/b/g/n. The watch will be equipped with a wireless charging interface that will charge the device at a 5W wireless charging speed.
I’m sure you’ll see the new device soon, estimated to be in a few weeks. It’s unclear whether the devices will be released at a separate event alongside the Samsung Galaxy Note 20.
