A new leak has offered a big clue about the forthcoming Galaxy Watch 5 and what we can expect.

The new Galaxy Watch 5 is expected this autumn, with Samsung generally adhering to an annual update schedule.

But now we have some concrete information about what we’re expecting to be released, courtesy of a new leak.

GalaxyClub has spotted three codenames: Heart-S (SM-R90X), Heart-L (SM-R91X) and Heart-Pro (SM-R92X).

Samsung watchers have taken that to mean that there will be two sizes of the standard Galaxy Watch 5 (small and large), and confirmation of a Watch 5 Pro edition which was leaked back in April.

At present, the standard Galaxy Watch 4 comes in 40mm and 44mm sizes. And the Galaxy Watch Classic comes in 42mm and 46mm.

The leak reveals that the Heart-S and Heart-L codenames will have a 40-42mm and 44-46mm sizes respectively. But, frustratingly, there's no word of size for the Pro version.

So this could mean a simplification of the range, with the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro version replacing the Classic, offering the large 572mAh battery touted in the April rumor.

What that means for the case size is anyone’s guess, but we’d expect it to be at least 46mm – if not larger.

The Galaxy Watch 4 has been a roaring success since Samsung switched back to Google’s Wear OS in 2021.

It boosted Samsung’s smartwatch shipments 16% YOY at the end of 2021, boosting Wear OS’s market share from 3% to 17% at the same time. Impressive stuff.

The launch of the Galaxy Watch 5 has the potential to build on that platform. However, this time around it’s likely Samsung will have to do battle with the Google Pixel Watch. And whether that grows the entire Android smartwatch pie, or causes a serious split, remains to be seen.
