Samsung has already confirmed that the Galaxy Note 9 will be unveiled on August 9th. Some recent reports have claimed that the upcoming Galaxy Watch, the rebranded successor to the Gear S3 smartwatch, will also be launched alongside the new flagship smartphone.

That now appears to be the case as the new “Wireless Charger Duo” has leaked online. This accessory will be capable of charging the Galaxy Note 9 and the Galaxy Watch at the same time.

Samsung isn’t just expected to unveil the Galaxy Watch alongside the Galaxy Note 9 on August 9th. A report earlier this week also claimed that the smartwatch is going to be released on August 24th, the very same day that Samsung is said to release the Galaxy Note 9.

An image of the Wireless Charger Duo’s box has been leaked online which confirms that it will support dual fast wireless charging. The two pads will be able to charge either two smartphones at the same time or a smartphone and the Galaxy Watch.

The box has consequently confirmed the existence of the Galaxy Watch as well. It even confirms that the smartwatch won’t be called the Gear S4. According to a report, this accessory is going to cost around $70.

It will likely be available immediately after the Galaxy Note 9 goes on sale. Samsung hasn’t confirmed when that will happen but reports peg the Galaxy Note 9 release date at August 24.

A couple of renders of the Galaxy Tab S4 have appeared online in recent weeks. Some of you may have noticed that Samsung’s upcoming flagship tablet doesn’t have a physical home button. So there’s no fingerprint sensor on the front but the renders also show that there isn’t one at the back as well. This meant that the tablet may not have the sensor and that does appear to be the case as the Galaxy Tab S4 firmware files that are already out confirm that the tablet will have an iris scanner.
