Samsung Galaxy Watch6 family to come with bigger batteries than the Watch5 devices
Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Watch6 family is expected to be unveiled alongside the company’s next-generation foldable devices, likely at an event in August. While we wait for summer to arrive, we’ll get some more details on the devices that will make up the Watch6 family, except for the Pro.
The Galaxy Watch6 will be offered in two sizes, just like the Galaxy Watch6 Classic. Thanks to a certification listing from a regulator in China, we now know that these will share battery capacity for the smaller and larger sizes that follow.

Both the Galaxy Watch6 40mm and the Galaxy Watch6 Classic 42mm will have a 300 mAh battery. Both the Galaxy Watch6 44mm and the Galaxy Watch6 Classic 46mm will have a 425 mAh battery.
By the way, both of these capacities are higher than what we saw last year, when the Galaxy Watch5 had to make do with 284 mAh for the 40 mm size and 410 mAh for the 44 mm size.
A recent rumor claimed that Samsung would bring back the rotating bezel this year, speculating that it would happen for the Galaxy Watch6 Pro, but it could very well be in the Classic series too, hence the thicker bezel probably what explains the 2mm jump. size compared to the vanilla models.
