Samsung has a new wearable in the works according to both the rumors and a recent FCC filing, but in terms of design, that was still pretty much anyone’s guess until now where it appears that Samsung might have accidentally revealed the upcoming device on their very own website.
In a screenshot saved by Scott Stein at CNET, it shows the upcoming device pictured alongside the Gear S2. It also confirms that Samsung will be dropping the Gear branding in favor of the Galaxy branding, but whether or not this change of branding has deeper implications, such as whether or not it could abandon Tizen OS in favor of Google’s Wear OS remains to be seen.
As for the design, it seems that Samsung hasn’t really made that many changes on that front which is good or bad depending on whether or not you liked the older design to begin with. Note that the listing on the website only shows the 42mm variant. Some of you might recall that the FCC filing revealed that the watch could be offered in more than one size.
Either way we should find out soon enough in the coming weeks as Samsung has confirmed that the Galaxy Note 9 will be unveiled on the 9th of August, and many speculate that the Galaxy Watch will be announced alongside it.
