We have been hearing a lot of news about the imminent launch of Samsung’s next-generation Galaxy Watch 3 models of late. Various models belonging to the Galaxy Watch 3 lineup have made their appearances on major certifications platforms ranging from NRRA, NBTC to Indonesia Telecom. The product also made an appearance on the Korean support page of Samsung’s own website a little less than a month ago. Today, two models of the Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 lineup made their first-ever appearance on Samsung’s India support page indicating that both these products would be launched in India. The products that seem to be India-bound bear the model numbers SM-R845F and SM-R850. Thanks to previous leaks, we know that the 845F is the 45mm LTE variant while the 850 is the 41mm Wi-Fi only variant of the Samsung Galaxy Watch 3.
The appearance of these Galaxy Watch 3 models come shortly after popular leakster Evan Blass revealed that there would be as many as nine different configurations for the lineup. The entire list is detailed below:
- 45mm Black Titanium Bluetooth
- 45mm Black Stainless Steel BT
- 45mm Black SS LTE
- 45mm Silver SS BT
- 45mm Silver SS LTE
- 41mm Silver SS BT
- 41mm Silver SS LTE
- 41mm Bronze/Gold SS BT
- 41mm Bronze/Gold SS LTE
Previous reports have also indicated that the new Galaxy Watch 3 lineup might receive a substantial increase in the prices with even the entry-level models starting at $400 going up to $600 for the more expensive options. This essentially means that even the entry-level variant could see a $70 increase in its price and It would be almost 50% more expensive compared to the Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2 that the company launched earlier this year.
Meanwhile, current expectations are that the entire lineup of Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 products would be launched on July 22 — followed by the now confirmed India launch. We would need to wait a while before the India prices are revealed as well.
