Both devices will run wearOS 3.5, with a One UI Watch 4.5 skin. They are expected to be revealed at Samsung’s Unpacked event next month, alongside the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4.
Platinum-hosting site 91mobiles said the standard Galaxy Watch 5 will be more fitness-oriented than the Pro model and will come in two sizes with a wide range of color options.
The Galaxy Watch 5 Pro will ship in titanium black or gray and feature LTE and Wi-Fi only models. The renders also confirm rumors that the Watch 5 Pro will jump on the full rotating bezel from the previous generation.
Samsung is also expected to launch new flagship foldables at Samsung Unpacked, marking their bid to catch up with Apple in sales of high-end models, banking on the growth of foldables.
The company has lowered its sales targets for its flagship S22 and A-series, and will instead focus on selling the Galaxy Z Fold and Flip devices.
In 2021, Samsung sold four times more foldable phones than in 2020 with the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3.
The move to prioritize high-end phones, a market Apple dominates with the iPhone, is likely to battle increases in inflation, where users of high-end phones are more likely to invest in the latest devices.
Samsung is also expected to develop foldable phones for the affordable market in the future.
