Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Watch said to bring back physical rotating bezel

One of the more satisfying ways of interacting with a smartwatch was the physical rotating bezel that was found on the original Samsung Galaxy Watch. While Samsung used a digital rotating bezel for the Galaxy Watch Active that was released after, an FCC certification has revealed that Samsung will be going back to the physical rotating bezel for its upcoming Galaxy Watch.

From the FCC certification, quite a few details were revealed in an image of the back of the device. It will supposedly feature Gorilla Glass DX, 5 ATM water resistance, MIL-STD01-8190G standard, Bluetooth Low Energy, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, GPS and LTE connectivity. On the back it is also mentioned that it will come in a 45mm size which is right in between the 42mm Galaxy Watch Active 2 and the 46mm Galaxy Watch.

Most interestingly though is the fact that Samsung is bringing back the physical rotating bezel from the original Galaxy Watch for the upcoming model. Samsung used a digital bezel for the Galaxy Watch Active series that used haptic feedback when using the bezel but it just wasn’t as satisfying.

The upcoming watch is expected to be released along with the Note 20 series and Galaxy Fold 2 during an online event sometime in August.
