It now appears that the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro will also include some tougher materials. The Galaxy Watch 5 Pro is shaping up to be a fairly interesting Wear OS version. A dependable tipper claims that Samsung will use sapphire glass and titanium for the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro.
Ice Universe says that the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro will be equipped, at least in part, with sapphire glass and a titanium body. Although it is uncommon for most smartwatches, a titanium body would undoubtedly have a luxury appearance.
The possibility that the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro will use sapphire glass, though, is perhaps even more intriguing. This has been observed on a few ultra-expensive Wear OS watches in recent years, including those from Tag Heuer. The Huawei Watch from 2015 was the latest Wear OS watch to be available to the general public.
With sapphire glass, smartwatches have remarkable longevity since the material is virtually scratch-proof.
The negative? This suggests that the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro will be extremely expensive. The Huawei Watch starts at $350, compared to the Galaxy Watch 4 Classic’s pricing of roughly $300. Although there may not appear to be much of a difference on paper, it is vital to keep in mind that nearly seven years have passed since then, and costs have increased due to inflation and chip shortages.
Ice claims stated in another tweet that the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro’s bezels won’t be incredibly tiny. This isn’t a major surprise given the suggestions of a rotating bezel and the stronger titanium frame, so we’ll just have to wait and see how the design turns out.
