Most tech experts thought the company is planning to launch the new watch at Samsung Unpacked 2020 in August. Now, some reports have indicated that the Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 3 will be launched next week. A number of things have been leaked and rumored about the Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 3. The following information is based on current leaks and it sounds like the Galaxy Watch Active 3 could be visibly similar to its predecessor. But, it will be presented with some significantly upgraded internals, which could be enough to make it one of the most exciting smartwatches of the year. The Galaxy Watch Active 2 was launched with a minor upgrade on its predecessor. It was announced in August 2019. The next event is the Samsung Galaxy S21 launch on 14th January 2021.
We could see a new smartwatch during mid-January. There is evidence that a new Samsung smartwatch is coming soon, as wearables with model numbers associated with such a device have recently been certified by China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT). Such a certification basically confirms the presence of a new wearable device. Point to be noted that previous models of Samsung Galaxy Watch Active were SM-R830, SM-R840, and SM-R850. Similar model numbers of SM-R845 and SM-R855 have also now been certified by the FCC in the US, along with the text ‘Samsung Galaxy Watch’. There aren’t any rumors about the price of the new device yet, but the Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2 had a starting price of $279.99, so we’d expect the Watch Active 3 will be near to it.
A leak pointed to a 45mm stainless steel case, LTE, GPS, a 5 ATM water resistance rating, military-grade durability, and Gorilla Glass DX protection. The Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 is expected in both aluminum and stainless steel versions. The new device will be available in black, silver, and gold color options but the stainless steel model only available in silver and gold. Leaks also pointed at 2 different screen sizes including 40mm and 44mm, but with a bigger 330mAh battery in the smaller model. The Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2 has a respectable 2 days of battery life. The Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 3 will have 8GB of storage. It will have an ECG and a physical rotating bezel or crown can be a great alternative to swiping across the screen to navigate the interface.
