The second smartwatch from Samsung should be soon officially unveiled since renders of the device have already been leaked online. What did we find out from this leak? There’s a feature that might not be added to the upcoming smartwatch.
The Samsung Galaxy Sport
Codenamed “Pulse,” the Samsung Galaxy Sport will be a new wearable from Samsung, one that will expand their line-up this year.
The prolific leaker Steve H., aka @OnLeaks has published the “Pulse” renders on Twitter after hinting it for more than a week. In his post, @OnLeaks thinks that the name of the next smartwatch will remain Galaxy Sport, adding the following description:
“And here comes your very first look at the upcoming new #Samsung Watch (renders based upon factory data), codenamed “Pulse” and rumored to be launched as the #GalaxySport… Coming in Black, Silver, Green and Pink Gold color options.”
First of all: Yay! More colors! As for the renders, as the leaker mentioned, they are based on factory data, which means that this is how the final model should look, but it is not all etched in stone.
Will It Get the Rotating Navigation Feature?
Looking at the render, we cannot stop but wonder if Samsung will introduce the popular rotating navigation feature.
The name could very well be Galaxy Sport, as Samsung already used the Sport name before for the Gear Sport smartwatch to appeal to users who want a fitness tracker and also see apps and connectivity on the wrists.
Today many smartwatches offer that, so the Galaxy Sport should be a choice of design and let’s hope it will have a nice price tag. The price shouldn’t be high, considering the OS might be Tizen instead of Wear OS.
There is no other hint we can glean just by looking at the render. Unfortunately, there’s also no rumor about when the Galaxy Sport gets released and no one knows if it will even get this name.
