Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 Pro will get premium case materials
Galaxy Watch 5 Pro will offer titanium and sapphire
Renowned leaker @UniverseIce has shared more details on the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro, which promises to be not only the best Samsung smartwatch for 2022, but also in the Android wearable market. According to rumors, the "firmware" will be released simultaneously with the Galaxy Watch 5, but the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro is expected to appear in only one size. Previously, the "basic" smart watch model was seen in the database of one of the certification agencies with case sizes between 44 and 46 mm.
According to @UniverseIce, the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro will feature a titanium case, as opposed to the aluminum and stainless steel used on the Galaxy Watch 4 and Galaxy Watch 4 Classic, respectively. By the way, Apple is already offering a titanium version of the Watch Series 7 starting at $799.
The leaker claims that Samsung will protect the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro with sapphire glass following the Apple Watch. For reference, sapphire glass is not as scratch resistant as marketers promise, and this was previously proven by well-known blogger JerryRigEverything. However, the sapphire crystal should offer more scratch resistance than the Gorilla Glass DX that Samsung is equipping the Galaxy Watch 4 series with.
Separately, @UniverseIce notes that the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro will not offer narrow bezels. Instead, the insider claims the bezels are "even a bit wider." Unfortunately, the leaker didn't provide any further details about the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro.
