Alleged photos and specs of the Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2 leak

Alleged photos and specs of the Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2 leak
A couple of days ago, we told you that the Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2 is in the process of being developed by the manufacturer. But with the original generation timepiece only four months old, Sammy will most likely continue to work on it for a while before introducing the sequel to the public. Today, SamMobile (which broke the original story) posted alleged images of the watch that it received from a source. While it has essentially the same design as the original, there are some changes.

For example, on the right side of the watch you will find that the power/home button is now round with a red circle around it, and the back button is shaped like a rectangle. On the other side of the case are the speaker grilles and the microphone, and the back of the device (where the heart rate monitor resides) has a fresh new look. As expected, there is no rotating bezel.

According to the source, the Galaxy Watch Active 2 will be available in two different variants, one using Wi-Fi only for connectivity. The other model will connect to a 4G LTE network. The latter carries a 340mAh battery while the power source for the Wi-Fi version weighs in at 237mAh. The device is said to be equipped with 1.5GB of memory and 4GB of storage. Version 1.5 of the One UI interface will be on the timepiece while current models are running on version 1.0, so we could see some added functionality on the Galaxy Watch Active 2. The case sizes will be 40mm and 44mm.

Once again, the Tizen operating system is expected to drive the timepiece and the color options for the new wearable will be silver, black and gold. As we get closer to the unveiling of the Galaxy Watch Active 2, we're sure to find out some more information about the watch. For now, you can check out the alleged images of the device in the slideshow.

Good job copying apple’s watch as always Samsung. Anyway this will be bundled with their galaxies and note line so it doesn’t matter.

Yeah, apple didn’t copy because apple is the number 1 in smartwatch. Look at your galaxy gear, so outdated just to have a smartwatch line like apple.

Just because it sells more doesn't make it original or better. iPods sold millions and they were a rip-off and the biggest crap in music players.

How does it copy the Apple Watch? There are so many words I wanna use to describe you. But then the site will say I'm attacking you. I pray to God that you are a child that doesn't know any better. Because if you are over the stage of 18 and you talk like this, then you should seriously consider medical treatment.

For once, and I hate to admit it, I agree with Peaceboy, it looks like Samsung took the Apple Watch and made it rounder. That red button, and the flat one, are taken straight out of the Apple watch. If Apple were to make a rounded version of their watch, it would've looked exactly like this.

Agreed, it would look like the active. I wanna see what Samsung does with the Galaxy Watch this year. I think they need to work on optimization. It’s git great battery life, looks good, features galore, but the two units I had, had battery drain, and lag. I’ve been using the Galaxy buds, and so far they are great.

How can you agree with something that isn't true? It doesnt look like an Aplle Watch only round. It does look like some of those really cool round smart watches from others. Like this onehttps://www.withings.com/us/en/steel-hr/36rgw/shop?screen=desc&gclid=CjwKCAjw9dboBRBUEiwA7Vrrzcv1hhSVZ3ADZ29zSVnWgTPiqnjXnf73eiQznK9z0ApfZRjhNfUS6xoCMGQQAvD_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds

Techie, you despise Apple and blindly defend Samsung, of course you won't admit that it takes lots of design cues from the Apple Watch.

Do you have the 3g version? I never had any issues with any of my Gear watches before I sold them, no bugs whatsoever.

Mine was the bluetooth only. I think it may have been the update causing it. I'm gonna try the GW2 when it comes out.

What? The Apple Watch looks like a frikkin toy tou win in one of those. Rane games. In fact I've seen Apple products in those crane games. Like this one.https://youtu.be/1ay8vdmyf9Y With exception of the original Gear, which I felt was not done well but had cool features like a camera on the strap, something Apple is trying to do now which you all said was gimmicky then...will love it now. The Gear S had cellular capability on the very first model. The Apple Watch was released after that and it didn't even have cellular calability. This doesn't look like an Apple Watch but only round. You all claim square watches are better. When facts shows, neither is better than the other at anything. GS3 work for mobile payments both NFC and MST which is awesome. The Apple Watch is a overpriced toy compared to the Gear. And this is coming from me, a person who thinks all smartwatches are just pointless money grabs and I own one and that is my opinion. They are useful, but pointless if you still have your phone on your person, which you will most of the time. This watch looks great and it could drive up sales. This is why the Galaxy Watch is crippled on iOS. Because Apple knows the Gear is better period and if the Gear did everything on IOS as it dows on Samsung phones, the Apple Watch would stop selling.

Sales? You mean samsung sales where they had been bundling this ugly watch and galaxy buds into your galaxy just to sell phones.

Nice job Samsung. Looks like a round Apple Watch right down to the red ring on the crown. Obviously that is the LTE model. Now Samsung will have to wait for Apple to bring out their foldable phone........

It looks like a round Apple watch. I think it's actually a good thing and mean it as a compliment. It looks nice.
