Samsung is reportedly planning to introduce a premium smartwatch called the Galaxy Watch X under its Galaxy Watch lineup. According to a report, this new model might offer a longer battery life compared to the upcoming Galaxy Watch 7 series, which is expected to launch in June. If the rumours are accurate, the Galaxy Watch X could be Samsung's flagship smartwatch for the year.

The speculation originates from the German website Techmaniacs, suggesting that the Galaxy Watch X could provide up to 100 hours of battery life.
