Just over a week before its expected arrival, images/renders of the Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2 have surfaced online. While there have been a couple of unofficial renders, the Active 2 smartwatch this time has been spotted on the FCC database, complete with images.
The wearable has the SM-R830 model number, and is classified as a “Smart Wearable”. The listing confirms the Galaxy Watch active 2 will come in two variant – one made of aluminum, the other of stainless steel. Both are encased in a circular 40mm watch body. Though there are indications it could also come in a larger 44mm variant and perhaps another with LTE support.
The listing further reveals the Galaxy Watch Active 2 will come with Samsung’s One UI laid over Samsung’s own Tizen OS. On the interface, we can see 4GB of storage listed there, and on the reverse side, the image says the Galaxy watch active 2 supports GPS, 5ATM water resistance, Gorilla Glass DX+ glass, and a military toughness rating of MIL-STD-810.
While we can not immediately confirm from the leaked images, Samsung is rumored to be bringing back the rotating touch bezel around the watch face that will effectively replace the rotating bezels on last year’s watch.
