Earlier today we heard that Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Watch4 family would have a Classic variant, to join the eponymous Watch4 and the Watch4 Active. Turns out that the device previously known as Watch4 Active could simply be called Watch4 – and we’ve already seen what it looks like courtesy of some leaked renders.
And now it’s time for the Galaxy Watch4 Classic to get the same treatment. So here it is in all its “Classic” glory, complete with rotating bezel and two huge buttons on the right.
Samsung introduced its skin (because yes, Wear devices will have skins just like Android phones have) a few days ago at MWC, and the Watch4 family is expected to be made official at the next Unpacked event, which may take place at some point in August.
As you can see, the leaked renders of the Watch4 Classic have 28 as the date, which may be the day of the announcement or the day of the release or neither. There will be three sizes for the Watch4 Classic, up one from what we’re used to.
Allegedly it will be offered in 42mm, 44mm, and 46mm options, in three colors – white, gray, and black. Those are far fewer hues than for the Watch4/Active but hey, that’s what you get with a “Classic”, right?
The casing for the Watch4 Classic will be either stainless steel or aluminum, and you’ll be able to pick either material for all three sizes. Any 20mm watch band will work with the Watch4 Classic, while in the box you’ll get two sizes – S/M and M/L (a la Fitbit). The screen will be protected by Gorilla Glass DX or DX+, the former on the stainless steel version, the latter on the aluminum watches.
DX+ is softer and thus “fits” better with aluminum apparently, and it has better scratch resistance. The Watch4 Classic is rated at 5ATM water resistance, and will also be MIL-STD-810G certified.
