There are quite a few products that Samsung needs to refresh for the new year and smartwatches are one of them. The new Samsung Galaxy Watch models for 2021 have now been revealed. There will be at least two different models on offer this year.
The last smartwatch that Samsung released was the Galaxy Watch 3. It came out last year after the previous two “Active” watches. Now it appears that the company has new smartwatches up its sleeve.
New Galaxy Watch models incoming
The folks at GalaxyClub are reporting that Samsung has two new smartwatches in the pipeline. They bear model numbers SM-R86x and SM-R87x. Since recent Galaxy Watch models were a part of the SM-R8xx series, it’s quite evident that these two models correspond to new Galaxy Watch devices.
This suggests that the new Galaxy Watch is going to be available in two sizes. This is something that Samsung normally does so it’s not going to be anything out of the ordinary. They will also be available in Bluetooth and cellular variants.
There’s not a lot of information available about the new Galaxy Watch models that Samsung has in store for us. It goes without saying that we can expect more information to trickle in through leaks and rumors in the coming weeks.
As for when they may be announced, it’s quite likely that Samsung will unveil them in the second half of this year. That’s it’s preferred timeline for new smartwatches. They may arrive around the same time as the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and the Galaxy Z Flip 2.
