  • A report claims that Samsung is working on a “Galaxy Watch Ultra” model, similar to the Apple Watch Ultra. 
  • Allegedly, it will use MicroLED display materials found in Samsung TVs and will cost “an arm and a leg.”
  • We’ve previously heard rumors that both Samsung and Apple are developing MicroLED watch displays. 

After leaving behind the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro for the Watch 6 Classic, we’ve long suspected that Samsung might switch back to a Pro design next generation. But if this latest rumor is to be believed, Samsung may release a Galaxy Watch Ultra, either in addition to or in place of the Watch 7 Pro.

Gizmochina claims via an unsourced “rumor” that Samsung is developing a Galaxy Watch Ultra that will use a MicroLED panel produced by Samsung Display. This display wouldn’t come to the standard Galaxy Watch 7 due to how expensive it’ll be to produce.
