The latest leak released by a reliable tipster Evan Blass reveals images of Wear OS 3.5 and One UI Watch 4.5 that we should see on the next iteration of Samsung’s range of smartwatches. Among the features included in the tweet is a new QWERTY keyboard. Users will be able to adjust left/right sound balance, apply color filters, and use a double-tap to open an accessibility shortcut, return to a recently used app, open Bixby, and more.
In addition to using the QWERTY keyboard for typing, users can double tap the action button to activate voice typing on any screen. Between the QWERTY keyboard and voice typing, creating and sending messages should be much easier. The images also show that Dual SIM capabilities will be supported as users will be able to select on their watch screen which line to select for certain calls and messages.
Wear OS 3.5 and One UI Watch 4.5 should come pre-installed on Galaxy Watch 5 models that will be released soon. Samsung may launch three new watches, including the Galaxy Watch 5, Galaxy Watch 5 Classic, and a new Galaxy Watch 5 Pro. The battery capacities are rumored to be 276mAh, 397mAh, and 572mAh respectively.
The watch faces featured in Blass’ tweet aren’t hugely eye-catching, with one showing a compass at the bottom of the screen. Another watch face looks the same, except it replaces the compass with icons showing weather conditions. You can check out the leaked images by tapping on the slideshow below.
