Previous rumors about the Samsung Galaxy Watch 6 Classic have indicated the likelihood of the device featuring Samsung’s own Exynos W980 chipset. This is a relatively new smartwatch-focused chipset that promises excellent efficiency gains on account of its 5nm manufacturing process. Besides this new chipset, the next generation of Galaxy Watches will be based on Google’s Wear OS 4 and will run a custom, Samsung-specific UI called One UI 5 Watch if we are to believe a recent Sammobile report. These software and hardware enhancements could translate to an improved UI experience in addition to aiding improved health tracking. While we do not know if Samsung intends to change the naming scheme in 2023, chances are high that the company will stick with the Galaxy Watch 6 Classic moniker this time around too.
For the past several years, Samsung has refreshed its smartwatch lineup at its second major Galaxy Unpacked event, which typically happens in July/August. 2023 is likely to be no different, and the launch of the company’s refreshed watch lineup could be just a few months away. Other devices likely to be announced alongside the Galaxy Watch 6 Classic include the company’s refreshed foldable lineup (the Galaxy Z Fold 5 and the Flip 5) and a refreshed lineup of flagship-grade tablets.
