Lavender variant Galaxy Watch Active 2 leaked ahead of alleged launch
We are just hours away from the Samsung Unpacked event, but we are getting more leaks from a new device that we heard previously being announced alongside the Galaxy S21 series. Official press releases of the previously released lavender variant of the Galaxy Watch Active 2 have been leaked on a German website, which appears to be some kind of confirmation that we will see this new version. Although the smartwatch was launched in 2019, it seems that the new color will match one of the variants of the Galaxy S21.
German WinFuture website posted on the official press renders that give us a closer look at the rumored lavender variant of the Galaxy Watch Active 2. It seems strange to release a new version of an almost 2-year-old smartwatch, but it’s almost officially confirmed that we are. to get one. This is most likely because one of the soon-to-be-announced new flagship color variants is something called “Phantom Violet,” which will likely be purple or lavender.
It appears to be a smartwatch with a diameter of 40mm or 44mm and a 1.19-inch Super AMOLED screen with a resolution of 360 x 360 pixels, quite similar to the Galaxy Watch Active 2. It appears to have a Gorilla Glass DX cover + to protect the screen. of bumps and scratches. It will come with support for Bluetooth and WLAN but no support for LTE, sadly. It is made of aluminum and will reportedly be water resistant to 5 ATM.
As for the hardware, nothing has changed either. It still runs on the Samsung Exynos 9110 dual-core SOC with two 1.5GHz cores. It comes with 4GB of flash memory and has support for GPS, WiFi and NFC. It has a 247 mAh battery that should last up to 43 hours in regular use and up to 95 hours in economy mode and 10 hours in GPS mode. It also has the same software features as the Galaxy Watch Active 2, including offline compatibility with Samsung Health and Spotify.
The lavender Galaxy Watch Active 2 is expected to be priced the same at $ 279.99 for the 40mm model and $ 299.99 for the 44mm model. We will find out very soon if all these leaks are real, as the Samsung Unpacked event will take place in a few hours.
