We’ve seen the 360-degree images and read the leaked specs list for Samsung’s Galaxy Watch 4 Classic, now it’s time for the Watch 4 to shine ahead of the Unpacked event on August 11th as a new report suggests it will manage up to seven days of usage on a single charge. Yup, you read that correctly, and we are talking about a smartwatch running on Google’s (and Samsung’s) Wear OS platform.
If someone had suggested that a Wear OS smartwatch was capable of lasting out a whole week on a single charge before the unified platform was announced during Google I/O in May we would have almost certainly called them crazy. But, with the Galaxy Watch 4 range using Samsung’s 5nm Exynos W920 chipset combined with the new Wear OS 3.0, who are we to mock? Especially when the report comes via WinFuture, a reliable source of so much information over the years.
If the seven days’ worth of battery life is accurate, that would mean that Samsung managed that on a battery unit with 361mAh capacity for the larger models, which is ludicrous when the TicWatch Pro 3 with its fancy Snapdragon Wear 4100 processor has a 577mAh unit.
Besides the claim of seven day’s worth of battery life, WinFuture also posted the following tidbits about Samsung’s Galaxy Watch 4 and Watch 4 Classic:
