On August 10, Samsung will officially lift the veil on two new foldable smartphones; but especially on two models of connected watches, the Galaxy Watch 5 and 5 Pro. These have almost no more secrets, since we were able to discover their design a few days ago; and we now know more about the autonomy of the most expensive model.
On Twitter, the insider Ice Universe shared great news about the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro’s massive 572mAh battery, which is 60% bigger than current models’ batteries. According to his information, the new connected watch that will replace the Galaxy Watch 4 Classic will offer autonomy never seen before under Wear OS.
The battery life of the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro can reach at least 3 days
Many smartwatch models from Samsung and Fossil, among other brands, hardly reach a full day on a single charge with Wear OS. Mobvoi’s TicWatch Pro 3 and Suunto 7 are exceptions to the rule, offering two days of battery life without charging. Now we know that the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro should do a little better.
Ice Universe announces that the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro would offer 3 days of autonomy, much more than its competitors. The device will even be more autonomous than the Apple Watch; even if it is far from reaching the 14-day autonomy offered by several connected watches that do not use Wear OS. The Watch 5 Pro will arrive with Wear OS 3.5 and One UI Watch 4.5; which have likely received a lot of optimizations aimed at making the watches more durable.
The Watch 5 Pro shouldn’t be the only connected watch of 2022 to offer such impressive autonomy. Qualcomm recently unveiled a revolutionary new Snapdragon W5+ Gen 1 SoC; which promises to significantly increase the battery life of watches that use it. It will also arrive on the next Oppo Watch 3, which will be available in August.
