Some suggest that Samsung might upgrade the batteries of the entire lineup altogether. While others predict other battery-saving features, including a MicroLED display.

This time, a new leak hints that the Galaxy Watch 6 lineup is debuting with a bigger battery capacity.

According to a report by GSM Arena, the Samsung Galaxy Watch 6 is still a few months away from its much-awaited debut. The next-generation wearable is likely seeing the light of day alongside the new foldable of the giant phone maker, such as the Galaxy Z Fold 5 and the Galaxy Z Flip 5. These upcoming devices are most likely releasing sometime in August.

By then, Samsung would have revealed what we could expect from its next-generation foldable and smartwatch. But for now, we could only rely only on early leaks and rumors to know what is coming our way.

Thankfully, the listing of the Galaxy Watch 6 in a regulator in China has recently leaked, giving us a glimpse at the potential battery sizes of the upcoming device.

It turns out that the entry-level variant of the Galaxy Watch 6 lineup offers a 300mAh battery, according to the leak. Meanwhile, the 44m standard variant carries a 425mAh battery.
