Huawei Watch 4 and Watch 4 Pro now official with Snapdragon W5 Gen 1 chipsets
Huawei has officially confirmed full specifications for the Watch 4 and Watch 4 Pro, as well as a European release date. To recap, the company introduced the Watch 4 series last month and recently released the pair's first major software update. Now, it has revealed that both smartwatches rely on the Qualcomm Snapdragon W5 Gen 1 platform, as well as 2 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage.
Additionally, an integrated LTE modem with a built-in eSIM come as standard, as do ECG capabilities, skin temperature monitoring and a depth sensor for diving. The Watch4 series also features a 1.5-inch AMOLED display that resolves at 466 x 466 pixels with a 310 PPI. Similarly, Huawei claims that the pair are water resistant to 5 ATM and can be taken diving to a depth of 30 metres.
However, the Watch 4 Pro has a larger case that measures 48 mm in diameter and 12.9 mm in depth, likely for its bigger battery. Specifically, the Watch 4 Pro has a 780 mAh battery, compared to the 530 mAh cell in the Watch 4's 46 mm x 10.9 mm case. Moreover, the Watch 4 has a stainless steel, composite fibre and '3D glass' construction; Huawei reserves titanium, ceramic and sapphire crystal for the Watch 4 Pro.
The Watch 4 and Watch 4 Pro will be available in Europe on June 13 for €449 and €549, respectively. For reference, Watch 4 series orders placed between June 13 and June 27 will receive a complimentary pair of FreeBuds 5i earbuds. Also, new Huawei newsletter subscribers stand a chance of winning a Watch 4 Pro if they subscribe before June 30.
