We've already seen several renders of the new Samsung smartwatch but until now, its specifications were unknown. The new name appeared thanks to a tip from an "XDA Recognised Developer", while the XDA Developer site also got its hands on some firmware files detailing some hardware specs.
According to the files, the Samsung Galaxy Active will come with a 1.3-inch display sporting a 360 x 360 resolution for a pixel density of 318ppi. The Gear Sport has a 1.2-inch display so the new model is ever so slightly larger.
It is also said to be coming with a 230mAh battery, GPS, a heart rate monitor and NFC for Samsung Pay. The battery appears to be smaller than the Gear Sport which has a 300mAh capacity, though bear in mind these specifications could be for a smaller model of the Galaxy Active - the Galaxy Watch has two sizes after all.
The Galaxy Active is claimed to run on an Exynos 9110 chip and it will operate on Tizen 18.104.22.168. It is also reported there will be an LTE model.
We expect to find out more on 20 February. In the meantime, you can read our Galaxy Sport / Galaxy Active feature round up.
