Earlier in the week, Samsung gave us a glimpse of what’s to come with One UI Watch. This will be the software powering the next Galaxy Watch, which we surmised would be the Galaxy Watch 4 and Galaxy Watch Active 4. However, new information has appeared with no mention of the “Active” version in sight. Instead, we could be seeing the Galaxy Watch 4 Classic.
Two new smartwatch models passed through the NBTC (via MySmartPrice), which is the Thai equivalent of the FCC here in the U.S. The Galaxy Watch 4 will carry a model number of SM-R875F, while the Galaxy Watch 4 Classic will use SM-R885F and SM-R895F for its model numbers.
The two model numbers for the Watch 4 Classic either point to just coming in different sizes, or there will also be an LTE model released. Considering that just about every Samsung Galaxy Watch arrives in multiple sizes, this could be the case, but it’s odd to see only one model number listed for the standard Watch 4.
Unfortunately, these NBTC listings didn’t reveal much else about Samsung’s upcoming wearables. What we know from previous leaks and reports are that the Watch 4 will feature in up to four different colors, while being available in either 40mm or 44mm sizes. The Watch 4 Classic could be the model sporting larger 42mm and 46mm sizes, harkening back to the last Galaxy Watch Classic release.
Considering that these new smartwatches are passing through different regulatory agencies across multiple countries points to an imminent launch. Samsung is rumored to be holding an Unpacked event in early August, with some suggesting an August 3rd announcement, while others have pushed that back to the second week of the month.
