Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 may receive a solar panel

Published

on

Samsung has been producing smartwatches since 2013. The most recent novelties are now the Galaxy Watch 4 and Galaxy Watch 4 Classic (review). And the company continues to work in this direction.

A new smartwatch patent was obtained by Samsung from the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) and describes “An electronic device containing multiple types of solar cells.”

the patent describes a Samsung Galaxy Watch with a strap that has solar panels embedded on both sides of the watch case. Such a watch will be able to recharge its battery from the sun. Placing solar cells on either side of the watch case allows for ample amount of sunlight to be collected, no matter how the watch is worn.

The Korean manufacturer describes the use of various types of solar cells that can provide relatively high efficiency.

As noted by LetsGoDigital, such a watch may come out under the name Galaxy Watch 5 or Galaxy Watch Solar, but no specifics are yet known. Brands like Garmin and Casio have already shown that such solutions are possible. This allows us to hope for a relatively early release of such Samsung watches.

There are no characteristics of the device, but, presumably, the Redmi Watch 2 will turn out to be an analogue of the Xiaomi Mi Band 6, from which it will differ in a larger and more rectangular screen. The straps of the product can be easily detached and replaced if necessary, for charging there are two contacts on the back of the case. The cost is not reported, but it is unlikely that the Redmi Smart Band Pro will be much more expensive than the Xiaomi Mi Band 6.
