- At least one report says there will be no Classic variation of the Galaxy Watch 5.
- It is unclear if the Galaxy Watch Pro will pick up the Classic’s features.
Fans of the Classic Galaxy Watch variation may be in for a disappointment, with reports indicating Samsung may ditch it with the Galaxy Watch 5 series.
The Classic model traditionally featured a slightly larger design and included high-end materials. The Classic also had a larger rotating bezel around the glass face, giving it a more traditional look than the sleeker base model. On the inside, the two models were mostly identical, meaning there were minimal performance or battery-life benefits included with the upgraded variation.
While SamMobile‘s report is light on details, hopefully, the anticipated Pro model will incorporate some of the Classic’s visual characteristics, providing a viable option for customers who still want that classic watch look.
