Samsung Galaxy Watch 7 Ultra

Samsung Galaxy Watch Ultra could be equipped with anti-reflective screen technology. The smartwatch is rumored to use anti-reflective coating, an identical feature to the Galaxy S24 Ultra. Ahead of the launch, crucial information about the wearable has been tipped.

According to the info, Samsung might pack the Galaxy Watch Ultra with anti-reflective coating on the screen. It would result in a greatly enhanced user experience over rivals. Apple’s iPhone is already defeated by the S24 Ultra in terms of screen visibility and color vibrance.

For the S24 Ultra, Samsung collaborated with Corning to develop an exclusive Gorilla Armor glass. It significantly reduces reflection and features extra durability. The lower the outside reflection, the better the display will screen colors and hues to the user.

Well, the Galaxy Watch Ultra could feature an anti-reflective coating. Whether it will be a Corning glass or coating material developed by Samsung remains to be known. However, it would be a major upgrade to the Ultra smartwatch, making it stand apart.

Samsung will hold the Galaxy Unpacked event on July 10. The Galaxy Watch Ultra will launch alongside the Galaxy Z Flip 6, Galaxy Z Fold 6, Galaxy Watch 7 series, Galaxy Ring and Buds 3 series. These products are rumored to hit market shelves in the third week of the next month.
