We are still a couple of months away from the release of the Galaxy Watch5 series, but SamMobile has a spicy rumor to share. According to the publication’s sources, Samsung is killing the “Classic” watch and replacing it with Pro. The standard option remains with the Watch5.
It’s still unclear what caused the naming change. It could mean that Samsung is ditching the rotating bezel, or it could also be just a simple rebradning for some marketing reasons. Either way, the report gives away some other relevant information.

For instance, the regular Watch5 will come in two sizes, while the Pro will likely be sold in just one size. Previous rumors also suggest that the latter will incorporate a big 572 mAh battery.
Lastly, to no one’s surprise, the new round of watches will keep the circular design and will run on the One UI Watch platform based on Wear OS 3.
