Samsung Galaxy Watch 3, Samsung’s upcoming wearable, has been making the rounds on the internet for quite a while now. Not too long ago, we spotted the Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 on the NTBC certification and the Indonesian telecom certification authority websites, which gave us its moniker and hinted that the launch date was imminent. Alongside that, the support page for the Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 also went live on the company’s official website a little while ago. That being said, we were unaware of the looks of the watch so far. As it turns out, that has not stayed to be the case, as we have spotted a bunch of live images of the Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 on the Korean NRRA certification website. Take a look at the live images and find out what the Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 looks like.
Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 live images spotted: Here’s what we know so far
As seen in the certification images, the Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 (SM-R9850 and SM-R840) will feature a circular dial (2 sizes) and have two buttons on the right side of its crown. The watch appears to have a rotatable crown, which is reminiscent of the earlier Samsung Galaxy smartwatches. Furthermore, if an exclusive leak by SamMobile has to be believed, the Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 will launch in two screen sizes.
We already know that there will be a 41mm variant and a 45mm variant, but the latest leak suggests that the display sizes will be 1.2-inch and 1.4-inch. Plus, both sizes will have stainless steel and titanium variants. The displays will be protected by a Corning Gorilla Glass DX. The two variants will of course have different measurements – 45 x 46.2 x 11.1 mm and 41 x 42.5 x 11.3 mm.
The Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 will feature 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage, and will boot Tizen OS 5.5 out of the box. As far as the batteries of the two variants of the Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 are concerned, the 41mm variant is said to feature a 247mAh battery, while the 45mm variant is likely to sport a larger 340mAh battery.
As of now, we are not entirely sure as to when the Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 will hit the commercial shelves, but we will keep an eye on the same and keep you posted the moment we receive any more intel on Samsung’s upcoming smartwatch.
