Galaxy Watch 6 rumored to adopt curved glass design

According to a new report, Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Watch 6 will revert to a design with curved glass, just like Google’s Pixel Watch.

ice universe said that Samsung is planning to re-adopt a curved glass design on the Galaxy Watch 6, which is due out later this year. That would be in stark contrast to Samsung’s latest smartwatch releases, which have largely stuck with only flat screens. The Galaxy Watch 5 and the Watch 4 before it both came with completely flat glass on the display, with the newer model adopting sapphire crystal.

Not too long ago, however, Samsung was using curved glass on smartwatches. THE GeorgiaIaxy Active 2 watch and its predecessor both used curved glass along the edges, but not to a particularly dramatic degree.

How Samsung decides to implement curved glass on the Galaxy Watch 6 remains to be seen, but chances are it won’t be to the same extent as Google’s Pixel Watch. Where Google’s Watch uses curved glass to create a “dome” shape, it’s a reasonably safe bet to assume that Samsung is using the design to hide the bezel on its smartwatch, much like it did on smartphones in the past. Apple, notably, also uses curved glass on the Apple Watch, which is undoubtedly also an inspiration for the move.

We don’t know much else about the Galaxy Watch 6 at this point, but the smartwatch is expected to debut later this year, possibly alongside the Galaxy Z Flip 5 and Fold 5.
