Samsung’s Wear OS 3.0 launch device, the Galaxy Watch 4, is almost a year old now, so it’s time for a new version. Evan Blass at 91Mobiles has scored a huge amount of imagery of Samsung’s upcoming smartwatch, including official 3D rotation animations that show the two models from every angle.
Samsung is also going with a bit of a model number change. The Galaxy Watch 5 “Pro” will replace the Watch 4 “Classic” as the high-end model, while the Watch 5 replaces the Watch 4.
The big news this year is that Samsung is doing away with the unique rotating bezel that was a staple of the high-end model. The lower-end version’s capacitive touch bezel is now the standard across all models, allowing you to run your finger around the watch face perimeter to scroll.
