We had exclusively reported earlier this month that Samsung could launch the Galaxy Watch 3 and the bean-shaped Galaxy Buds Live in July, ahead of the launch of the Galaxy Note 20 and the Galaxy Fold 2 in August. We also exclusively leaked the specifications of the company’s upcoming smartwatch. Over the past week, press renders of the Galaxy Watch 3 have been leaked, teasing the launch date of the wearable.
The leaked press render image of the Galaxy Watch 3 teases ’22’ and ‘Wed’ on its watch face. In fact, July 22 is indeed on a Wednesday, leading us to believe that the smartwatch will officially debut on July 22. Samsung might not hold a press conference for the announcement of the Galaxy Watch 3 and the Galaxy Buds Live due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation.
The Galaxy Watch 3 will come in two sizes (41mm and 45mm), two case options (stainless steel and titanium), and three colors (black, bronze, and silver). The 41mm version of the smartwatch will have a 1.2-inch screen, while the 45mm version will sport a 1.4-inch display. The smartwatch will have a circular Super AMOLED screen with Gorilla Glass DX protection, two physical buttons on the right side, and standard-sized replaceable watch straps.
The upcoming smartwatch succeeds the Galaxy Watch and features a rotating bezel and an IP67 certification with 5 ATM water resistance. It will be equipped with 1GB RAM, 8GB storage, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi. The Galaxy Watch 3 will also feature GPS, heart-rate monitor, blood pressure monitoring, ECG, and sleep tracking. The 41mm version will be powered by a 247mAh battery, while the 45mm version will have a 340mAh battery.
