Samsung ditched its iconic physical rotating bezel in favor of a digital one on last year’s Galaxy Watch 5 series. But the latest rumors of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Watch 6 lineup suggest the company might bring back the beloved physical rotating bezel on the “Pro” model. To recall, 2021’s Galaxy Watch 4 Classic was the last Samsung watch to feature this kind of bezel.
Samsung Galaxy Watch 6 Pro Rumors:
Design and Display
This piece of good news comes from a Korean leaker, SuperRoader. He says the Galaxy Watch 6 Pro will regain the physical rotating bezel, although the regular Galaxy Watch 6 will have the same digital rotating bezel as its predecessor. Likewise, the Watch 6 Pro might also be available in two dial sizes—contrary to how the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro came in a single 45mm option only.

Other than this, Samsung Galaxy Watch 6 Pro may arrive with a 1.4-inch Super AMOLED display with Sapphire crystal glass protection on top. Whereas the Watch 6 will be protected by Gorilla Glass instead. The Watch 6 series will also feature IP68 and 5 ATM water resistance.
Moving on, the Galaxy Watch 6 was spotted with a 300mAh battery by GalaxyClub which is 5% more than the 284mAh battery of Watch 5. The Pro model is also expected to get a bigger battery this time. In terms of charging, both Watches may support 10W fast charging like last year.

Rest of the specs
Software-wise, we can expect to see these smartwatches boot on WearOS with Samsung’s One UI skin on top. As usual. This time too, iOS support is unlikely. There’s no leak about any new health and fitness tracking features yet.
Samsung Galaxy Watch 6 Series Price and Availability
The Watch 6 series is expected to debut in the second half of this year (presumably alongside Samsung’s new foldables). As for pricing, the Watch 6 and 6 Pro are rumored to cost USD 279 and USD 499, respectively.
