Samsung will unveil its new Galaxy Watch 5 series smartwatches in a week and we’ve already taken a close look at what the watch will look like, as well as technical features such as fast charging.
On August 10, Samsung will unveil several high-end devices, including the Galaxy Z Flip 4 and Galaxy Z Fold 4, the foldable smartphones we already know all about, the Galaxy Buds Pro 2, its range of high-end headphones, but especially a new generation of connected watches Galaxy Watch 5 and Galaxy Watch 5 Pro, whose design leaked a few days ago.
Thanks to the well-known leaker SnoopyTech, we now know what the next Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 is entitled to in terms of fast charging. We already knew that the new smartwatch will benefit from an updated chargerbut we didn’t know much about the charging speed of the Galaxy Watch 5.
The Galaxy Watch 5 charges at full speed
The leaker tells us that, Galaxy Watch 5 can be charged with 10W which is twice as fast as the charging speed of the Galaxy Watch 4. The leaker indicates that the charger will be able to fill your battery up to 45% in just 30 minutes, which is pretty fast for a smartwatch to say the least. Requires the charging cable to be connected to a compatible power adapter of at least 10W, then magnetically attached to the back of the smartwatch.
On the cable, we also notice the presence of a USB-C connection, which replaces the outdated USB-A connection of previous models. For its part, the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro, the most expensive model, could also be entitled to a fast charge of at least 10 W to fill its large battery of 572 mAh. As a reminder, it is much more than the previous generation, which only benefited from a 361 mAh battery. It is mainly thanks to this huge new battery that the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro would offer 3 days of autonomy. On the OS side, the watches will benefit from Wear OS 3.5 with a Samsung One UI Watch 4.5 overlay.
