After pictures of the Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Galaxy Z Flip 5 surfaced last week, it appears leakers are far from finished with new, confidential materials surrounding Samsung's upcoming devices. This time, alleged promotional photos of the Galaxy Tab S9 and Galaxy Watch 6 were published, revealing new clues on how the tablets will be water-resistant while the watches receive thinner bezels.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 with waterproofing

Earlier this year, it was reported that Samsung's Galaxy Tab S9 could feature a water resistance rating. This has been indirectly confirmed in the image shared by tipster @snoppytech, depicting Galaxy Tab S9 models that have water splashes behind. The hint is further extended by the animated wave wallpaper for all three tablets.

More than the new ingress protection, it is also evident that these slabs will be compatible with the S Pen. This is not surprising considering how this has been a basic feature for the Tab S series. In addition, the Galaxy Tab S9 Ultra will retain its notch display, and this might translate to having the same dual selfie camera setup from the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra that our colleague Carsten Drees reviewed.

It is speculated that the entire Galaxy Tab S9 range will be fitted with an AMOLED panel. If so, this will be different from last year's vanilla Tab S8 which only sported a LCD panel while the more advanced display was reserved for the Plus and Ultra models. In addition, Qualcomm's overclocked Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 is expected to power all three tablets.

Samsung Galaxy Watch 6 Classic gets a mechanical rotating bezel

Apart from the tablets that Samsung will announce at the end of July in South Korea, renders of the Galaxy Watch 6 smartwatches also made their way to the World Wide Web. WinFuture depicted the same round form factor albeit with flat displays and thinner bezels for the two Galaxy Watch variants.

Interestingly, the bigger Galaxy Watch 6 will be known as the Classic and not Pro, was spotted with a rotating bezel. This change has been heavily rumored before, so this finally gives a better look at how it will be implemented. Lastly, the aforementioned model was seen with a slightly revamped two-button layout.

Apart from the look, Samsung's Galaxy Watch 6 series could enlist a new Exynos W930 chipset with a slightly faster processor and better graphics performance. The new chip might deliver a longer battery life to the smartwatch pair as well. There is no information on whether the BioActive sensor and other tracking features of the watches will receive notable upgrades this year.

Samsung already announced that it will hold its Unpacked next month, although they haven't specified the exact date. It is believed this could kick off on July 26 while a separate launch in the US is also in the pipeline.

I still remember how amazed I was when I first got hold of the Nokia 3210 back when I was a kid, and it was during that time I developed my love for technology, particularly for mobile phones. I started sharing my knowledge through writing in different blogs and forums back in Nokia Nseries era. I even make videos before where I put different phones side-by-side. Today, I'm still an avid enthusiast of smartphones, but my interests have evolved into smart devices and electric vehicles.
