As is traditional, the Galaxy Watch 6 has leaked ahead of its big reveal at Unpacked at the end of July.

Full images of the Galaxy Watch 6 and Classic have leaked courtesy of WinFuture, showing a largely unchanged design from the Watch5.

And there are a handful of details from the leak, including the case sizes of each model.

The Watch 6 will ship in the same 40mm and 44mm case sizes as its predecessor.

But bucking the trend of smartwatch naming conventions, the bigger Watch 6 Classic will revert back to its traditional moniker, and gain a new, more unisex size.

The Watch 6 Classic will come in 43mm and 47mm versions, with all indications pointing to the presence of the rotating bezel control, which was previously rumored.

It’s also claimed that every model in the line-up will boast an improved screen-to-body ratio, so each AMOLED display will be larger than previous generations.

Bar that, the design is largely unchanged, with a slightly redesigned sensor array and new quick-release straps.

It appears as if the Galaxy Watch 6 will use an updated Exynos W930 chipset, which the leaks claim will boast a faster clock speed but the same manufacturing processes so is unlikely to yield game-changing levels of efficiency.

Previous rumors have pointed to a small increase in battery size, but it doesn’t look like there will be significant boosts in battery life.

Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 was a leader in battery life in the Wear OS smartwatch space, but that longevity has been challenged by the TicWatch Pro 5, which uses a dual-layer display and the latest generation Snapdragon W5 processor.

The big reveal is set for the end of July, but we can guarantee there will be more leaks in the coming weeks, with zero ambiguity come launch day.
