Samsung’s Galaxy Watch is one of the few smartwatches that comes closest to Apple Watch Series in terms of design and performance. It now appears a new Galaxy Watch is coming sooner than expected. Already, the smartwatch has made multiple unofficial appearances on the web and now it has been spotted on the US’ FCC certification site. The FCC listing also reveals what the next iteration of Galaxy Watch may look like.

According to Sammobile, as many as four variants of Galaxy Watch have been listed on the FCC website. The first two variants come with LTE connectivity and sport 45mm SM-R845U and 41mm SM-R855U model numbers. Other two variants are Wi-Fi variants and sport 45mm SM-840 and 41mm SM-R850 model numbers.

Sammobile points out that the larger model of the upcoming Galaxy Watch is smaller than the Galaxy Watch (46mm) and bigger than the Galaxy Watch Active 2 (44mm). The company is also expected to launch a titanium variant which is likely to be priced much higher than the aluminium and stainless steel models.

According to the schematics on the FCC website, Samsung’s one of the upcoming Galaxy Watches will sport Gorilla Glass DX display. It is also seen with 5ATM water resistance. The company is likely to retain the rotating bezel functionality on the upcoming smartwatch.

The latest leak comes days after Samsung announced it has received a clearance from South Korea’s Ministry of Food and Drug Safety to roll out Electrocardiogram (ECG) monitoring feature to Galaxy Watch Active 2. The company is likely to add this functionality in its upcoming smartwatches as well.
