Samsung is reportedly in the works to launch a new Galaxy Watch series, dubbed the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 series, soon in the market. The Galaxy Watch 5 has recently been spotted on the FCC certification website.
The FCC documents have listed three Samsung smartwatches bearing model numbers SM-R900, SM-R910, and SM-R920. The first two are the 40mm and 44mm versions of the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5, while the third is supposedly the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro.
Furthermore, the accessory information listed in the FCC docs suggests that the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 series will drive juice from chargers rated at 10W (5V, 2A), thereby hinting that the upcoming models will charge faster than their predecessors.

The Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 and its predecessors featured 5W charging. As spotted on FCC, the wireless charger that has been tested in the lab for the upcoming Galaxy Watch 5 series is rated at 10W, suggesting faster charging for the new watch models.
This is notably the input rating, and the charger may still be limited to 5W output. However, it is confirmed that the smartwatches will feature larger batteries—the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 will have 276mAh and 397mAh batteries in the 40mm and 44mm models, respectively. The Samsung Watch 5 Pro will have an even larger 572mAh battery.
As for the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 Pro, it is reported to skip a rotating bezel to replace it with a small bezel around the display, which will be visible as it features a completely different colour than the active area of the display.
Other features of the Galaxy Watch 5 series include Bluetooth, Wi-Fi (2.4 and 5GHz, b/g/n), and NFC. We can expect the brand to launch the LTE versions of the wearables as well.
