Samsung's own app confirms details of the upcoming Galaxy wearables
Recently, we heard rumors of a Galaxy smartwatch and Galaxy Buds expected to be launched alongside the Galaxy S10 flagships on February 20. Those rumors now seem more credible than ever. Why? Well, an update to Samsung's Galaxy Wearable App for Android has accidentally (or intentionally) leaked details about the upcoming wireless earbuds, a smartwatch, and a fitness band. Here is everything we know.
In the entire lineup of new Samsung wearables, the first one on the list is the Galaxy Watch Active. As per the app listing, the upcoming smartwatch will have a 40mm case and it'll feature a rounded display with slim bezels. Moreover, previous rumors claimed that the Galaxy Watch Active will sport a 1.1-inch AMOLED display, a 236mAh battery and support wireless charging.
The app also mentions new Galaxy Buds, wireless earbuds that'll take on Apple's AirPods. And though we are short on details, we know they will come in at least two colors (white and black). Further, we expect Galaxy Buds to support voice commands, gesture inputs as well as wireless charging to make them compatible with the 2-way wireless charging reported on Galaxy S10 flagships.
Alongside the Galaxy Watch Active and Galaxy Buds, the Wearables App has also revealed two fitness bands. Dubbed as Galaxy Fit and Galaxy Fit e, both bands are expected to feature rubber straps and AMOLED displays. And while the differences between the "Fit" and "Fit e" are not evident, the latter might come with e-SIM support. However, we'll know it all on February 20.
While Samsung may be planning to introduce a bunch of new wearables, the main highlight of the Unpacked event will be the Galaxy S10 flagships. On February 20, in San Francisco, the Korean tech giant will launch the premium Galaxy S10+ and Galaxy S10 smartphones and a lower-cost Galaxy S10e model. Moreover, Samsung is also likely to showcase its foldable phone at the event.
