Update, July 28, 2020 (4AM ET): The Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 has been showcased in yet another pre-launch video. This time, YouTube channel The Mobile Central is responsible for a full unboxing, including a detailed look at the watch itself, its setup procedure, and size comparisons with other devices.
The nearly 10-minute video is probably our best look at the Mystic Bronze 41mm Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 to date. Aesthetically, the Watch 3â€™s design cues match those spotted in previous first-looks, renders, and leaks.
Included in the box is the usual magnetic charging cradle, but there doesnâ€™t seem to be a second strap. This could be fairly annoying for those with wider wrists who want to wear the smaller 41mm model. A larger 45mm is also in the works, according to previous rumors, which should be a better replacement for the Gear S3 Frontier Editionâ€™s 46mm face.
For more info, and those size comparisons, watch the full clip below.
Samsungâ€™s watch is one of several devices expected to arrive next week, alongside the Galaxy Note 20 series. So we donâ€™t have long to wait for availability and pricing information.
Original article, July 27, 2020 (10:11AM ET): Yet another Samsung device has leaked ahead of the companyâ€™s August 5 event. The purported Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 is the subject of a video published by YouTube channel TechTalkTV. The video was reportedly created by one of the channelâ€™s subscribers.
We donâ€™t get a lengthy look at the watch in the vertical video, but we can glean a fair amount from it nonetheless. For one, the clip showcases the purported 41mm model which features a 1.2-inch round display with two buttons on its right-hand side. The rotating bezel makes a welcome return too for glossing through menus and apps. Samsungâ€™s wearable UI seemingly hasnâ€™t changed much, still sporting rounded icons with additional and familiar swipe controls to boot. The device handled in the video also suggests that earlier renders published by Evan Blass and a live photo from a Taiwanese regulator may be accurate.

According to the YouTube channel, the smartwatch will also be offered in a larger 45mm guise with a 1.4-inch display, echoing earlier rumors. Both sizes will allegedly sport an IP68 rating with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of storage. Built-in GPS is also allegedly included along with an ECG and a heart rate monitor. Also mentioned in the video is the presence of Gorilla Glass DX and MIL-STD-810G durability. Both features appeared in previous leaks too.
