The month of August has arrived, and with it comes the countdown of the upcoming Samsung Unpacked event, where new foldables, earbuds, and the company’s first Wear OS smartwatches in years will be unveiled. The first live photographs of the Galaxy Watch 4 Classic surfaced this weekend, revealing both colours and a glimpse of the Wear OS UI.
Max Weinbach and 91Mobiles both obtained and uploaded live shots of several Galaxy Watch 4 Classic models, with the former having more to share. The first is a black model, and the second is a polished silver model. Both look to be made of the same stainless steel as previous Galaxy Watch rotating bezel models.
Two physical buttons may also be seen, as well as white and black bands that appear to be leather, but are most likely fake. There is a real bezel around the watch with numbers around the face to simulate the look of a classic analogue clock, as past leaks have revealed. The touchscreen in the middle, on the other hand, appears to have essentially no additional bezel beyond those numbers.
The screen is turned on in both photographs, but there isn’t much to learn from what’s on show. There’s a lot of design inspiration from Samsung One UI on smartphones, but not much from Google’s Wear OS. Weinbach also shared two screenshots, one of which showed the app drawer for One UI Watch and the other of which showed one of Samsung built-in watchfaces. On August 11, Samsung will officially introduce the Galaxy Watch 4 Classic and Galaxy Watch 4 in less than two weeks. Wear OS 3 will be available on both smartwatches.
