Display

The display has received a major boost. In comparison to the previous Galaxy Watch Series, the display is 20% larger and the bezels are 30% smaller. Both the 40mm and 44mm models use Super AMOLED panels that are 1.3 inches and 1.5 inches, respectively.

The Super AMOLED display technology on the Galaxy Watch not only impresses with its larger size and smaller bezels, but it also delivers colorful graphics and clear details. Whether checking messages, seeing fitness stats, or navigating apps, the improved display ensures a wonderful and engaging user experience on both the 40mm and 44mm variants.

Chipset

The Samsung Galaxy Watch 6 is equipped with the innovative Exynos W930 processor. The Exynos W930 is the latest addition to Samsung’s outstanding processor lineup.
