Samsung Galaxy Watch 7 Pro Tipped to Get Bigger Battery Than Galaxy Watch 5 Pro

Samsung Galaxy Watch 7 series is expected to launch later this year alongside the purported Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 6 and Galaxy Z Flip 6 foldables. The company has yet to confirm the launch of any of the products but there have been several rumours about them over the past few weeks. The Galaxy Watch 7 lineup has been tipped to launch with three possible variants, each with varying connectivity options. Now a report has leaked the battery details of the Galaxy Watch 7 Pro.

A GalaxyClub report spotted the battery details of an upcoming smartwatch on the Safety Korea certification site. The battery with the model number EB-BL705ABY was listed with a rated capacity of 578mAh. This is larger than the rated capacity of the 573mAh rated battery which was used in the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro and marketed as 590mAh.

Therefore, a smartwatch carrying a larger battery than the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro could be the Galaxy Watch 7 Pro. Earlier reports claimed that the Galaxy Watch 7 series is expected to come with three variants – out of which, one is likely a Pro model. Notably, the Galaxy Watch 6 series launched in July 2023 with a base Samsung Galaxy Watch 6 and a Samsung Galaxy Watch 6 Classic.

Samsung’s Galaxy Watch 7 lineup is said to come with Wi-Fi-only and eSIM-supported variants. The former is expected to come with model numbers SM-L300 and SM-L305, while the latter is said to carry model numbers SM-L310 and SM-L315. The rumoured top-of-the-line third variant, expected to be the Galaxy Watch 7 Pro, is likely to carry model numbers SM-L700 and SM-L705. All the model numbers ending with the number five are said to support cellular and eSIM connectivity, while the other models are likely to support only Wi-Fi.

The Galaxy Watch 7 models are also tipped to get 32GB of onboard storage, which is a considerable upgrade over the 16GB on the Galaxy Watch 6 models. The purported smartwatches are expected to run on a new version of Wear OS and One UI Watch and come with an upgraded 3nm chipset which is likely to be 50 percent more power efficient than the current ones.
