Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 Rumors: What to Expect

Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 Rumors

When it comes to smartwatches, the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 is one of the most popular on the market. And for a good reason – it’s packed with features and has a sleek, stylish design.

We have been a great fan of Galaxy Watches since it released the Watch 3 in August 2018. These devices come with a great design, features, and always-on display, which is very helpful for everyone.

The Galaxy Watch 4 comes with a new Wear OS Software by replacing the Tizen OS, and it has given a lot of improvement to the performance and security of the watch.

However, some areas were still lacking, so we hope that the Galaxy Watch 5 will address these issues.

Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 Rumors: What to Expect

Here are some of the rumors we have heard so far and what we want to see in the next Galaxy Watch. Coming days, more rumors about the Galaxy Watch 5 will be available. So ensure to bookmark and check back to this post for more updates.

1. Design

When it comes to the design of the Galaxy Watch 5, we’re not expecting any significant changes. The watch will likely have a similar look and feel to the previous models, with a few minor tweaks here and there.

Samsung may keep the well-known rotating bezels for the new watch, one of our favorite features. We’re also hoping for a slimmer design, as the Galaxy Watch 4 was a bit on the thick side.

The Galaxy Watch 4 Classic is available in 42 and 46mm sizes, but we expected to have a smaller size to cater to those with smaller wrists.

2. Display

The biggest change is expected to happen with the display. A Samsung patent filing has suggested that the company is exploring the possibility of a rollable display for the Galaxy Watch 5.

A patent filing, which LetsGoDigital spotted, shows a design for a watch with a flexible display that can be rolled up. The patent also describes how the watch could be equipped with a camera, which would be used to capture images and videos.

This would allow users to take photos and videos without removing the watch from their wrist. The patent filing indicates that Samsung is expected to implement this technology in smartwatches, but it is unclear if or when Samsung plans to implement it.

3. Improved Battery Life

The Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 offers 40 hours of battery life on a single charge, and this is a better battery life than the Apple Watches, which provides 18 hours on a single charge.

According to Sammobile, the Galaxy Watch 5 will come with a 276mAh battery by replacing the 247mAh battery. This smartwatch has a rollable display and camera, so a bigger battery is needed to provide power for those new features.

4. Temperature Sensor

Temperature sensors are not new to smartwatches, but they are not very common. The Galaxy Watch 5 is rumored to come with a temperature sensor, a first for a Samsung smartwatch.

The sensor would be used to measure the temperature of your skin and could be used to track your health or provide information about the weather.

Currently, the Fitbit Sense has a temperature sensor, and it is handy for fitness tracking and detecting flue-like symptoms at the earliest.

According to the Apple Watch Series 8 rumors, the next Apple Watch will also come with a temperature sensor. So, the Galaxy Watch 5 needs to have a temperature sensor to compete with the new Apple Watch.

5. New Activity Profiles

Flagship smartwatches often come with new activity profiles! This makes us believe that the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 will also include new activity profiles to track various outdoor and indoor activities.

6. Improved Blood Pressure Monitoring

Currently, there is no news about an improvement in the blood pressure monitoring feature of the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5. The Galaxy Watch 4 blood pressure monitoring requires calibration every four weeks, which is a bit of a bummer.

Additionally, the Fitbit also works on a blood pressure monitoring feature on smartwatches that does not require calibration.

This makes us believe that the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 will have improved blood pressure monitoring that might not require calibration.

7. Blood Sugar Monitoring Feature

In the new Samsung Galaxy Watch 5, we would like to see the blood sugar monitoring feature that is currently unavailable on the top smartwatches.

According to the reports, Fitbit and Apple are working on the blood sugar monitoring feature. It is expected to be available on the new Fitbit smartwatches and the Apple Watch Series 8.

If the smartwatch makers succeed in adding this feature, it would be a big plus point for diabetes patients who have to monitor their blood sugar levels constantly.


These are all just rumors for now! However, if even half of them turn out to be accurate, the Galaxy Watch 5 will be a fantastic smartwatch! We will have to wait and see what Samsung has in store for us.
