Galaxy Watch 5 Pro with rotating bezel? Those who appreciate may be disappointed

Galaxy Watch 5 Pro it will be the third and most luxurious variant of the South Korean manufacturer’s next range of smartwatches. This is at least the picture drawn by the rumors that concern him and that go in the direction of a product that will make materials (sapphire glass and titanium) its strong point, as well as the main element of differentiation compared to the other models in the line – Watch 5 40 and 42 mm and Watch 5 44 and 46 mm.

There is no lack of those who ask themselves if Watch 5 Pro will return to propose a feature much appreciated by users loyal to Samsung smartwatches, that is the rotating ring also used with Galaxy Watch 4 Classic (model shown in the opening image).

Unfortunately, the answer given by a source that is often well informed on the Company’s events leaves no room for doubts. The Ice Universe leaker does not mince words and, commenting on Twitter on the wish of a user who hoped to see the coveted input tool return to the Watch 5 Pro equipment, said: unfortunately the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro will let you down.

The rotating physical bezel could then be replaced by a touch-sensitive bezel (as in non-Classic Galaxy Watch 4). Alternatively, the control of the UI can only take place via touch screen and physical buttons. In addition to the absence of the bezel, aspiring Watch 5 Pro buyers will have to take into account not exactly thin edges – probably due to the materials or aesthetic requirements. Finally, according to previous rumors, Galaxy Watch 5 Pro will have a large battery (572 mAh).

The launch window is always set for the summer, probably in August on the occasion of the announcement of the new Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Z Flip 4 folding.
