The Galaxy Watch 6 is set to have a slight battery boost


Samsung’s Galaxy Watch series has been the best of Wear OS since it debuted with the Galaxy Watch 4 in 2021, and rumors are starting to emerge about the company’s next generation. A previous rumor hinted at larger battery sizes on the Galaxy Watch 6, and now another leak shows exactly what upgrade to expect.

The Galaxy Watch 6 series is expected to consist of four models this year, one more than last year’s Galaxy Watch 5 series. This is due to the rumored revival of the “classic” style, which has a rotating bezel and is slightly larger in comparison with the standard Samsung smartwatch.

SamMobile reports that a Chinese regulatory board has leaked listings for the Galaxy Watch 6 and Galaxy Watch 6 Classic, both in two sizes, 40mm and 44mm for the Watch 6 and 42mm and 46mm for the Classic model. The listings offer battery sizes for each size that have the following typical capacities:

  • Galaxy Watch 6 40mm: 300mAh
  • Galaxy Watch 6 Classic 42mm: 300mAh
  • Galaxy Watch 6 44mm: 425mAh
  • Galaxy Watch 6 Classic 46mm: 425mAh

Comparing this to the Galaxy Watch 5, that’s roughly a 5% upgrade for each model. For those upgrading from the Galaxy Watch 4 to the Watch 6, however, that’s an upgrade of around 20%, which will have a significant impact on battery life.

However, this would be a downgrade from the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro, which had a 590mAh battery. There is no word yet on whether a Galaxy Watch 6 Pro with the same battery capacity is in the works, or whether Samsung will use this branding at all.
