Samsung is projected to launch the Galaxy Watch Active 4 alongside the flagship Watch 4 soon. This smartwatch is rumored to arrive in 2 sizes, which correspond to the 40 and 42 millimeter (mm) variants of the existing model. Now, one of these, most likely the former, has popped up in a new leak purporting to reveal its battery details.
This tip reportedly consists of documentation on the Samsung SM-R860 and SM-R865F issued by SGS Fimko ahead of their launch. It declares that the watches have the same new battery with a rated capacity of 240mAh, although its typical capacity (the one most likely destined for official spec sheets) is 247mAh.
The new certification also indicates that this SM-R860 and R865F (which have also been certifed by the Wi-Fi Alliance alongside the rest of its 4-series kin, and are believed to refer to the Wi-Fi only and 4G/LTE ~40mm Watch Active 4 respectively) will ship with a charging cradle capable of powering them at 5W (5V/1A).
Should this be the case, it seems the new wearables will have a little more battery life than the base-model, non-LTE Watch Active 2 (at 230mAh), or be equal to that of the same variant with eSIM support in these terms.
Then again, Samsung might insist that this near absence of generational spec bump will not matter all that much, thanks to new optimizations in the heavily Tizen-informed version of the Wear OS the Watch Active 4 is slated to run out of the box.
