Samsung is said to be working on a Gear Sport successor that is codenamed Pulse and is expected to be called the Galaxy Watch Active smartwatch. This watch is said to come without the bezel ring and the company has also reduced the display size of the watch.
The Galaxy Watch Active will come with a 1.1 inch AMOLED display along with a resolution of 360×360 pixels, no bezel ring and small display. Given the smaller display, the phone is expected to come with a smaller battery of 236mAh compared to Gear Sport that comes with a 300mAh battery.
In terms of battery, the Galaxy Watch Active will come with a redesigned Charger which happens to be a small pad that suggests that the watch would sit on it horizontally instead of a 90-degree angle. This will make it more convenient as the watch will be placed on the flat surface that will utilize the reverse wireless charging feature.
The upcoming Galaxy Watch Active will come with a dual-core Exynos 9110 chipset with 4GB of storage and water-resistance of up to 50 meters. In terms of connectivity, the phone will come with Bluetooth 4.2, NFC, and Wi-Fi. It will be running on Tizen v184.108.40.206, with Bixby Reminders support to Samsung’s smartwatch lineup.
Note that these are just rumours. The Galaxy Watch Active is expected to launch with the Galaxy S10 on 20th February which leaves with just a few days.
