Galaxy Watch and Gear S3 could soon be overtaken by a new Samsung smartwatch


Galaxy Watch and the Gear S3 are two of Samsung’s wearables that debuted in 2016 and 2018 respectively.

The duo attempt to provide users with a wealth of fitness functionality while also handing them the ability to view and interact with notifications.

To be expected from a newer device, the Galaxy Watch comes with a number of improvements when compared to the Gear S3.

These include longer battery life and the ability to track a greater amount of fitness movements.

Samsung’s smartwatches run the firm’s own Tizen software as opposed to Google’s Wear OS.

While the Galaxy Watch and Gear S3 remain appealing options for anyone in the market for a smartwatch, it appears the South Korean OEM is working on a successor to both, according to a new report from SamMobile.

Citing sources familiar with the matter, the outlet stated the alleged hardware will come in two models and speculated at least one could arrive with 5G capabilities.

Unlike the Galaxy Watch Active that was unwrapped alongside the Galaxy S10 earlier this year, the new hardware was suggested to be a fully fledged smartwatch and not a device designed specifically for fitness.

Unfortunately, the case sizes for each version of the claimed product was not discussed.

The supposed wearable was stated to come in black, silver and gold colours.

It was also noted the device would tout 4GB of internal storage.

One of the biggest topics of discussion in SamMobile’s article surrounded whether or not the new wearable would come with Samsung’s signature rotating bezel.

Both the Galaxy Watch and Gear S3 offer the feature that allows for an intuitive method of navigation.

However, the firm’s newest smartwatch, the Galaxy Watch Active, ditched the tool and instead prompted the user to use its physical buttons and touchscreen to operate Samsung’s software.

Unfortunately, SamMobile did not provide any information as to whether or not the new Samsung product would take advantage of a rotating bezel.

Finally, it was speculated the new device could debut alongside the presumably titled Galaxy Note 10 later this year.

Pricing for the alleged smartwatch was not discussed.

While SamMobile’s report will surely have many Samsung fans excited about the prospect of a new wearable, it is worth noting nothing about such a product has been officially discussed by the South Korean OEM.
