Samsung is cooking up a small but potentially meaningful Galaxy Watch 6 battery upgrade
How big of a difference can 5 percent make?
That sounds like a pretty big gap making the 44mm non-Pro Watch 6 a potentially far better overall option for someone (with a large wrist) who wants to squeeze as much life as possible out of an intelligent timepiece.
More importantly, of course, those two figures are larger than the 284 and 410mAh battery sizes of the 40 and 44mm non-Pro Galaxy Watch 5 respectively. The actual bumps are far from drastic, mind you, at roughly 5 and 3 percent, but Samsung already massively increased the cell capacity of the Galaxy Watch 4, so it’s definitely impressive that the company is getting ready for yet another (smaller) improvement.
What else do we know about the Galaxy Watch 6?
The direct sequel to the premium Galaxy Watch 5 Pro (pictured here) remains completely shrouded in secrecy.
Given that there’s obviously more than one way to curve a circular touchscreen, that doesn’t really tell us much about exactly how the Galaxy Watch 6 and Watch 6 Pro might look, but if Samsung is indeed planning a radical redesign of sorts, internal upgrades and revisions could be kept to a minimum.
