Samsung will introduce the Galaxy Watch 5 in several versions in a few weeks. There will also be a new Pro version of the smartwatch. Actually, it was expected that this will appear in addition to the already known models. But nothing will come of it, as Samsung itself confirms in an app.

Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 Classic no longer exists

Actually, we expected Samsung to launch three smartwatches this year with the Galaxy Watch 5, 5 Classic and 5 Pro. The Pro model is expected with a much larger battery and higher quality materials. But now the surprise: the Galaxy Watch 5 Classic is no longer available. In the current beta version of the official Samsung Health app, the smartwatch is not listed. The company only mentions the normal Galaxy Watch 5 and the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro there (source: 9to5Google).

This may not seem like a problem at first, because you will still be offered two smartwatches, but there is another rumor that has only recently surfaced. The Galaxy Watch 5 Pro will no longer have a rotating bezel. Which the classic look of the smartwatch would be history and you have to expect that the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro will only be a larger version of the normal Galaxy Watch 5. If the edges around the screen turn out to be as wide as it is the case with the Galaxy Watch 4, that would be a bit of a disappointment.

In the video you can clearly see the difference in the design of the two Samsung watches:

When will the new Samsung smartwatches be presented

We no longer have to wait long for the presentation of the new Samsung smartwatches. Already in August, the Galaxy Watch 5 is expected along with the new folding phones from Samsung. At the latest then it will become clear whether the rumors are true. But Samsung has now basically confirmed with the Health app that something will change there.
