Samsung’s upcoming Unpacked event is really running out of secrets. All the products have gone on sale because the retailers are sloppy, and now, we are starting to learn more, like what experiences might be with some of them. For him Galaxy Watch 4 Y Galaxy Watch 4 ClassicOne such experience has to do with the battery life of early Wear OS 3 watches, and the word on the street sounds almost unbelievable.
According to Winfuture, which has heard from “various sources”, the battery life of the Galaxy Watch 4 could be extended up to 7 days. Seven. SEV. IN. That?
We know that the battery size is expected to be 361 mAh and 247 mAh for the large and small models of each watch, neither of which is out of the ordinary. I mention that only because the Mobvoi TicWatch Pro 3 has a ridiculous battery life of 2-3 days, but that’s mainly because it has a massive 577 mAh battery, almost twice the largest capacity of the Galaxy Watch 4. How the hell is Samsung getting up to 7 days of battery life with such a small cell?
This report does not delve into exactly what “up to seven days” means. Is it some kind of low power mode without any intelligence turned on or did Google and Samsung do some magic with Wear OS 3 and the new Exynos W920 chip on board? I suppose it will take fewer functions to have that kind of life, but they have certainly caught my attention.
As for other benefits outside of battery life, we have more specs to absorb for both watches:
- Galaxy Watch 4 (40mm, 44mm)
- Galaxy Watch 4 Classic (42mm, 46mm)
