It means the Galaxy Watch 5 non-pro model is also coming with the sapphire glass. It was rumored that the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro will be the only wearable to adopt sapphire glass.
What’s the big deal with sapphire glass? It is stronger, and more resistant to scratches and other damages. Apple uses sapphire glass for the premium stainless steel and titanium watch models.
The Galaxy Watch 5 is rumored to be a bit more expensive than the last year’s models.
