Forget the ‘Active’, here’s the Galaxy Watch 4 Classic


Earlier yesterday, we saw two new smartwatch models pass through the NBTC, confirming the Galaxy Watch 4. But the other model actually was named the Galaxy Watch 4 Classic, which goes against previous rumors and leaks for Samsung’s next lineup of smartwatches.

Courtesy of Android Headlines, it seems that Samsung will indeed bring back the ‘Classic’ moniker with the Galaxy Watch 4 Classic. Not only did AH confirm this through its sources, but we now have a series of hi-res renders to gawk at ahead of Samsung’s next Unpacked event.

The Galaxy Watch 4 Classic will be the first Samsung watch to sport this name since the Gear S3 Classic from almost five years ago. In previously leaked renders, there were concerns that Samsung would be getting rid of the rotating bezel which makes it extremely easy to navigate through the operating system.

These renders also reveal that the side buttons will also be a bit larger than what we’ve seen for the Galaxy Watch 4. According to this leak, the Watch 4 Classic will arrive in three different sizes – 42mm, 44mm, and 46mm. Color options won’t be as vibrant as you might expect, as Samsung is opting for a more reserved design with the Classic. This means we’ll only have three colors to choose from in white, gray, and black, while the case will be made from either stainless steel or aluminum.

Some of the other specs that were confirmed include Gorilla Glass DX and DX+ which is said to provide better scratch resistance. Swimmers will also be able to take advantage of the Watch 4 Classic as it will feature a 5ATM rating while also being MIL-STD-810G certified.

Unfortunately, Android Headlines could not confirm when this smartwatch will make its debut. There’s a date of “28” on the watch faces shown, which could point to an August 28th release. Or the 28 could just be a placeholder altogether with no real rhyme or reason.

All we know is that we’re getting more and more excited, and honestly just wish Samsung would show everything off at this point.
