Galaxy Watch 7 Pro Outstrips Rivals With Massive Battery

Samsung is expected to offer the Galaxy Watch 7 series in three variants. While the trio will remain unnamed, one of the entries could see the return of the Pro model. It has been rumored the Pro model could feature a massive battery cell that will dwarf even the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro (review), which is Samsung’s Galaxy smartwatch with the largest battery capacity to date.

It seems the Galaxy Watch 7, the successor to the Galaxy Watch 6 (review), is touted to feature the internal numbers SM-L30, SM-L31, and SM-L70. The first two are believed to be associated with the standard and classic models while the last is speculated to be the Pro.

In line with that, more details are surfacing with the latest hailing from an official certification body in South Korea (via GalaxyClub), revealing a battery cell labeled EB-BL705ABY. The most obvious connection would be this as the Galaxy Watch 7 Pro’s battery sporting the SM-L70 model number.

As detailed in the filing, the battery has a rated capacity of 578 mAh, which is a mite larger than what we’ve seen in the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro that sports a 573 mAh rating. Even so, the advertised typical capacity might be listed in the specifications as 600 mAh when compared against the latter’s smartwatch at 590 mAh.

Further comparison places the alleged Galaxy Watch 7 Pro’s battery as lasting longer than the likes of the recently launched OnePlus Watch 2 (review) with a 500 mAh battery and the Xiaomi Watch 2 Pro with its 495 mAh battery. However, the battery capacity is still lower when compared to the Mobvoi’s TicWatch 5 Pro (review) equipped with a 629 mAh battery.

Subsequently, the gain in battery capacity suggests the Galaxy Watch 7 Pro should deliver a significantly longer battery life than the Galaxy Watch 6 and possibly the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro as well. Of course, real-life performance would still depend on the smartwatch’s processor and software optimization.

Although battery details for the standard Galaxy Watch 7 are still unknown, it appears the entire lineup will benefit from a more efficient and faster Exynos chipset. Furthermore, the new hybrid Wear OS 4 platform that first debuted on the OnePlus Watch 2 will likely help stretch the smartwatch’s battery life. 

Samsung has not announced anything about the launch of the Galaxy Watch 7, but the company is rumored to host its Unpacked event in early July. The new smartwatch catalog should be unveiled then alongside the Galaxy Z Fold 6 and Galaxy Z Flip 6 foldable smartphones.
