Samsung’s Galaxy Watch 4 Classic has turned up online earlier than expected


Okay, now we know that there’s a Samsung Unpacked event in the very near future. The company’s unannounced Galaxy Watch 4 Classic has turned up in official-looking renders online, showing off pretty much every aspect of the coming wearable’s design.

As the name suggests, the design is more or less what we’ve been expecting from the range. It looks a little bulkier than the Active variant seen last week, along with a large rotating bezel and a much busier design.

Supersizing your Galaxy Watch 4 Classic?

Like the Active, though, there are two physical buttons visible on the device but the major change seems to be that Samsung’s introducing a third size for the Classic. There are set to be 42mm and 44mm versions, but a 46mm edition is rumoured to launch alongside the two smaller sizes. Usually Samsung opts for a 40mm/44m combination, or a 42mm/46mm pair. If we get a third size, it’ll be a sign of Samsung’s confidence in its new One UI Watch ecosystem.

Elsewhere, Samsung’s reportedly launching the Classic in three colours — Black, White and Silver — and in stainless steel or aluminium finishes. The stainless steel devices will use Gorilla Glass DX, while the aluminium Watch 4 will spring for Gorilla Glass DX+. Screen sizes and internals aren’t really known (yet) but we’d expect to see OLED doing duty on the panel front. The device’s waterproof rating has also been revealed (5ATM — so you won’t kill it in a pool), as is its toughness rating (MIL-STD-810G — so it can join the Marines when it grows up).

Samsung’s got an Unpacked event on the horizon, where we’ll see the Galaxy Watch 4 Classic, the Active, likely the new folding devices from Samsung’s stable and possibly a surprise or two. Possibly.
