The Galaxy Watch 5 Pro will have a premium build and a premium price tag – if new rumors are to be believed.

Twitter leakster Ice Universe, who has been all over Samsung wearables leaks, has tweeted about the build materials for the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro.

Ice Universe believes the Watch 5 Pro will use a titanium build, which would keep weight down and offer a premium look and feel.

We’ve seen titanium used on other premium smartwatches, such as the Huawei GT 3 Pro.

The tipster also alleges that the Watch 5 Pro will use super-strong and scratch-resistant sapphire glass. Again, we’ve seen this used on devices such as the Tag Heuer Connected and premium Garmin Fenix range.

To recap, the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 Pro is expected to be an all-new addition to the Galaxy watch range this Fall – when it will go head-to-head with the Google Pixel Watch.

It seems as if Samsung will drop the Classic version of its smartwatch – which has been part of the Watch 3 and Watch 4 range – and offer a larger and more premium device.

Previous leaks by Ice Universe have pointed to an enormous 572mAh battery, although there’s no information about that here.

Separate leaks also seem to confirm the existence of a Galaxy Watch 5 Pro version.

Earlier this month GalaxyClub spotted three codenames for Samsung smartwatches: Heart-S (SM-R90X), Heart-L (SM-R91X) and Heart-Pro (SM-R92X).

That would (logically) correlate to two sizes of the standard Galaxy Watch 5, as we’ve seen on the GW4, and a new singe-sized Pro version.

If that GW5 Pro was to include a 572mAh battery, that size could be quite large. We could see a 46mm+ case size.

All this is speculation, however. We’ll have to wait until this Fall to see what Samsung has been cooking up.
