Samsung Galaxy Watch5 to be more expensive than the Watch4

Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Watch5 family of wearables will be more expensive than the Watch4 devices launched last year, at least upon release. That is, if a new rumor about the case strikes through. However, it comes from normally reliable Roland Quandt (of OnLeaks fame), so there is a greater than normal probability of accuracy here.

Let’s see. The Galaxy Watch5 40mm Bluetooth will only sell for € 300, while the LTE model will go for € 350. The Galaxy Watch5 44mm Bluetooth-only model will be priced at € 350, while its LTE-compatible siblings will sell for € 400.

Finally, the Galaxy Watch5 Pro comes in one size: 45 mm. In its Bluetooth-only iteration, it will go for € 490, while if you add LTE, you will have to pay € 540. The Pro will be available in black and titanium. The 40mm Watch5 will be offered in pink gold, gray and silver, while the 44mm Watch5 color versions are blue, gray and silver.

Note for comparison that 40 mm Galaxy Watch 4The price was € 270 with Bluetooth only and € 320 with LTE, so we are looking at a price increase of € 30 here. That 44 mm Galaxy Watch 4 costs € 300 MSRP only with Bluetooth and € 350 with LTE, so this will undergo a € 50 price increase.

That 46 mm Galaxy Watch4 Classic, which will be replaced by the Galaxy Watch5 Pro, is available for € 400 (Bluetooth) or € 450 (LTE). This means that the upcoming model will be 90 € more expensive than its predecessor.

These price increases are some of it if you calculate them in percentage points and they certainly will not make potential customers happy. It is still unknown how many people will be willing to pay extra for the rumored improvements in battery life.
