Apart from the two new foldable smartphones, Samsung also launched the Samsung Galaxy Watch4 Classic, along with the base model Watch4. We got our hands on the former and we will be reviewing the smartwatch but before that, let us give you a taste of it with our first impressions of this new wearable.

The Samsung Galaxy Watch4 Classic is one of the two new wearables introduced by the Korean giant recently at the latest Galaxy Unpacked event. For our review unit, it came with a 42mm Ridge Sports Band, which is a fluoroelastomer material that is durable and can withstand sweat, making it ideal for workouts.

It comes with a 1.4-inch Super AMOLED Display with Gorilla Glass DX. The resolution has seen an improvement over last year’s model as it went from 360 x 360 to 450 x 450. It has retained its IP68 resistance rating, so you can easily use it for workouts or bring it to the pool with you if you wish.

It’s now powered by the Exynos W920, which is notable for being the first 5nm processor to power wearables. It’s slightly stronger than the Exynos 9110 but it’s said to be noticeably more energy-efficient. Memory has also seen an upgrade as the RAM has increase by 500MB while the storage has doubled, effectively putting it at 1.5GB RAM and 16GB storage.
