Samsung’s highly anticipated smartwatches, the Galaxy Watch 6 and Galaxy Watch 6 Classic, are set to be launched later this year, along with the Galaxy Z Flip 5 and the Galaxy Z Fold 5. The latest information regarding the Galaxy Watch 6 reveals a significant boost in performance due to its newer Exynos W980 processor.
Samsung Galaxy Watch 6 Series: Rumored Specifications
Sources suggest that the new chipset will be more than 10% faster than its predecessor, the Exynos W920, which was used in the Galaxy Watch 4 and Galaxy Watch 5 series. While specific information regarding the CPU and GPU configuration is not yet available, there are rumors that Samsung may fabricate it using their newer 5nm process, which could lead to improved battery life.
The Samsung Galaxy Watch 6 will also feature a larger and higher resolution screen than its predecessors, and the Galaxy Watch 6 Classic will see the return of the iconic rotating bezel. Both models will feature thinner bezels and slightly higher-capacity batteries.
In terms of features, we can expect the Galaxy Watch 6 to include all the existing features of the Galaxy Watch 5, such as a circular OLED touchscreen, ECG, GPS, heart-rate sensor, health and fitness tracking, sleep tracking, and body composition analysis along with Wi-Fi, NFC, wireless charging, cellular connectivity and Wear OS-based One UI Watch software.

Galaxy Ring not supported with iPhones – Officially Confirmed
Recently, at the MWC 2024 event, which was held in Barcelona, Samsung’s VP, Hon Pak confirmed that the upcoming Galaxy Ring will not be supported by iPhones. Pak also said that their products are as good as the Apple ones.
There are also very good reasons to switch to Samsung’s ecosystem. Samsung is also working on making their devices compatible with other Android devices as well, not only with their own.
As we already know, Galaxy Ring comes in various sizes. Among them, the smallest one is powered with a battery of 14 mAh, and the largest one comes with a bigger battery of 21.5 mAh which will provide a battery backup of 5-9 days.
Until now, the launch of Galaxy Ring has not been revealed but some rumors suggested that it will launch in the Unpacked Event, which is going to be held in July along with Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Z Fold 6 and Z Flip 6.

Google and Samsung Secure Exclusive Long-Term Deal for Circle to Search Feature
With the new Samsung Galaxy S24 Series, i.e. Samsung Galaxy S24, Samsung Galaxy S24+, and Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra, Samsung has introduced its new Galaxy AI which has many AI features. One among them was Circle to Search which was created in partnership with Google. The same feature was also introduced by Google for its Google Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro a day later.
How Circle to Search is different from the ordinary Search?
As we know, if you want to search for something in the Google lens. Then, you have to choose the photo from the gallery and select the object from the photo. But with this Circle to Search, you just have to circle the object from the photo that you want to search.
If you want to know more about the Samsung Galaxy S24 Series and its new Galaxy AI, then we already have a dedicated post for that.
Note: Some of the Galaxy AI features will also come in the first half of 2024, i.e. January to June, in the Samsung devices listed below:
- Samsung Galaxy S23
- Samsung Galaxy S23+
- Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra
- Samsung Galaxy S23 FE (Fan Edition)
- Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5
- Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5
- Samsung Galaxy Tab S9
- Samsung Galaxy Tab S9+
- Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 Ultra
Can we expect Circle to Search feature on other Smartphone devices?
Sadly, according to a statement by Samsung Netherlands, it is clear that the Circle to Search feature will be exclusive to Samsung and Google devices until October 2024.
Circle to Search may become available on Android devices from other brands from 5 October 2024, but there are no active developments underway for this.
Google and Samsung think that these exclusive features can attract people to prefer their devices, but it can hurt users as well as other Android manufacturers. Eventually, this is not the first time, Samsung and Google have given the latest version of WearOS on their wearables.
Because of this, users as well as other smartphone manufacturers are upset with both Samsung and Google. It is like Apple’s ecosystem, which was previously opened, but now, it is more closed with these exclusive features for exclusive devices. What Samsung and Google are thinking, is just because of these exclusive features, users will consider a Pixel or a Samsung Phone.
What do you guys think? Are Samsung and Google doing right to give exclusive features? Do let us know in the comment box. Also, do tell us whether you like this post or not.
