The Galaxy Watch 5 and the Watch 5 Pro are my favorite smartwatches in terms of the overall design language. A large part of it has to do with the fact that I am a watch enthusiast and rarely prefer watches that are different from the norm. Sure, even in tradition watch industry, you have various case designs but the round case design is perhaps the most iconic and that is what gravitates me towards the Galaxy Watch 5. Well, it might be changing with the Galaxy Watch 6 as we have some new information about Samsung's plans for this year's smartwatch.
According to the latest information from Ice Universe, the Galaxy Watch 6 will debut a curved display rather than the flat display that we saw on the Galaxy Watch 5.
Samsung Galaxy Watch 6 has returned to the curved glass design. From now on, it is known that the glass is not flat and there is not much other information.

As to why Samsung decided to go with the curved display rather than the flat display for the Galaxy Watch 6, we are not sure but there is no denying that it looks coolr and more futuristic. What I am more excited about is looking at just how the compnay implements the rotating bezel with a curved glass, because that will be something to look forward to.
Now, the curved glass might worry some people because it does not have the same protection against drops but if you remember, the Galaxy Watch 5 series featured a sapphire crystal instead of a standard glass, and sapphire has excellent toughness. Many of the luxury watches you see also use sapphire crystal in shapes such as completley flat or even curved or domed as we call them. Knowing this, I am more than confident that the Galaxy Watch 6 will not be failing anyone in terms of durablity.
Sadly, at the time of writing, we don't know anything else about the Galaxy Watch 6. However, for those wondering when it will be coming out, we are hoping that Samsung would announce it somewhere during August 2023 as that is the time when the new generation of foldable phones are going to launch.
You can expect to hear a lot more about the upcoming Galaxy Watch 6, we will be sure to keep you posted about all the information that comes our way. Until then, stay tuned and let us know what you would like to see in Samsung's upcoming smartwatch.Continue Reading
