3D renders of Samsung’s upcoming smartwatches, the Galaxy Watch 5 and Galaxy Watch 5 Pro, have appeared online thanks to Reader Evan Blass and 91Mobiles, a month before their expected launch in August. The renders show the two watches from every angle and match other leaked details about the two devices.

First up is the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro, the premium of the two and the rumored successor to last year’s Galaxy Watch 4 Classic. The bad news is that the rumors of the watch no longer having a physical rotating bezel appear to be true – there’s no sign of the favored mechanism in these renderings. There’s also only one model size, 45mm, instead of the two sizes we saw last year (46mm and 44mm).

Then there’s the standard Galaxy Watch 5, which has a simpler design. It will reportedly be available in two sizes; 44mm and an unspecified smaller size. Both it and the Watch 5 Pro will reportedly have a pair of physical buttons on the right side of their screens, the option of LTE connectivity, GPS support and 5ATM water resistance – meaning they can survive at depths of 50 meters for maximum up to 10 minutes at a time.

As for software, Blass reports that both watches will run Google’s WearOS 3.5, skinned with Samsung’s One UI Watch 4.5. An earlier report suggested that they support faster 10W fast charging, rather than the 5W charging of their predecessors.

According to Blass, both watches could be announced next month as part of Samsung’s annual summer Unpacked event. They will reportedly be joined by a new set of Galaxy Pro earbuds, as well as new Flip and Fold foldable devices.
