New support pages for the Samsung Galaxy Watch3 have gone live – one for the 41mm model and one for the larger 45mm watch. Both are listed twice, once with a stainless steel body and once with no mention of material.
Note that these are SM-R840 and SM-R850 while earlier this month we saw support pages for the SM-R845. The “5” at the end indicates and LTE model, “0” means only local connectivity.
There are two more, the R840X and R850X. However, the “X” usually stands for a demo unit, so you’re unlikely to see these available for purchase (though it seems that Walmart is trying to get rid of old Galaxy Watch demo units, SM-R810X).
Anyway, previous leaks have offered good looks at the 45 mm Galaxy Watch3 as well as the 41 mm one. There will be leather and metal wrist bands as well as several color options, including “Mystic Bronze”.
The Watch3 will be IP and MIL-STD rated and feature ATM5 water resistance and Gorilla Glass DX over the display (1.4” in the case of the 45mm model, 1.2” for the smaller one). They will run the latest Tizen 5.5, of course, and should feature a GPS receiver and an ECG sensor.
According to @evleaks, the new watches will cost between $400 and $600. There’s talk of titanium versions too, those will be on the higher end of the price scale.
The Samsung Galaxy Watch3 will be officially announced at the Unpacked event scheduled for August 5. The stars of the show will be the Galaxy Note20 duo and the Z Fold 2, the Z Flip 5G couldn’t wait and was unveiled yesterday.
