Oops! Samsung Galaxy Watch4 and Watch4 Classic listed prematurely by Amazon Canada
Not yet, Amazon Canada, Samsung hasn’t officially announced the Galaxy Watch4 and Watch4 Classic. The retail giant jumped the gun and published both models (first spotted by Snoopy) and left a note saying that the watches “will be released on August 27”.
The fancier Galaxy Watch4 Classic with a hardware bezel is priced at CAD 428 for the 42 mm model and CAD 464 for the 46 mm one. That translates to USD 343/EUR 290 and USD 370/EUR 315, respectively. That is a lot less than the rumored prices, though the pages may have gone live before Amazon updated the listings. Both sizes have stainless steel bodies.
The 42 mm watch will have a 1.19” display, while the larger model is listed with a 1.36” display.
The Galaxy Watch4 is coming in 40 mm and 44 mm versions, both aluminum, and costing CAD 310 and CAD 347, respectively. Glancing at the currency converter again, these numbers work out to USD 250/EUR 210 and USD 280/EUR 235, respectively.
Despite being a couple of millimeters smaller, both vanilla Watch4 models have the same display sizes (1.19” on the small one, 1.36” on the larger one). Note that the vanilla watches don’t have a physical rotating bezels like the Classic duo.
