After previous branding, price, size, and color leaks, we now have our first look at Samsung’s Galaxy Watch 5 and Watch 5 Pro thanks to what should be official renders.
Evan Blass on 91mobiles this evening leaked the next-generation Galaxy Watch devices as “high-resolution, 3D ‘turntable’ renders.” It starts with the Galaxy Watch 5 – which is codenamed “Heart” – and mostly unchanged from the smaller Watch 4 released last year.
We see that it’s 44mm from the ring of text on the underside, but Blass says a similar size – presumably 40mm – will also be available. It’s going to be offered in a “more expansive color palette than the Pro lineup” and we have a look at standard Graphite and Silver, as well as pale blue Sapphire. Pink Gold in the smaller size should also be offered, according to one previous Galaxy Watch 5 leak.
Both models are using “Sapphire Crystal” instead of Gorilla Glass DX and will be available in LTE variants. Other shared specs include GPS and 5ATM water resistance. Today’s report says they run One UI Watch 4.5 based on wearOS 3.5, though it remains to be seen whether that update will hit existing devices first.

While the regular Watch 5 looks identical to last year’s model, the Watch 5 Pro – as rumored – drops the Rotating Bezel for what Samsung currently calls a “Digital Bezel.” However, the bezel is not flat but rather curved inward. This will hopefully aid finger placement and accuracy.
Codenamed “Project X,” it will be available in black or gray titanium with only a 45mm size compared to the Watch 4 Classic’s 46mm (and 44mm). It’s definitely thicker than 2022’s smaller size and looks to be using a different clasp system instead of the usual pin buckle (as seen on Watch 4/5).
