After launching a brand new smartwatch alongside the Galaxy Note 20 series a few months ago, Samsung appears to be readying a new color variant of the Galaxy Watch Active 2. This new color variant will reportedly be unveiled early next month during the announcement of the Galaxy S21 series.
According to trusted leakster Evan Blass, Samsung will launch the Rose Gold variant of the Galaxy Watch Active 2 on January 14. He also published the first press renders of the upcoming smartwatch. The upcoming color variant of the Galaxy Watch Active 2 appears to feature a purple-colored band paired with a rose gold-colored metal case. It matches the Phantom Violet color variant of the Galaxy S21+ that was leaked a few days ago.
