The smartwatch may be revealed alongside the new Note 9 during Samsungâ€™s annual event in New York on August 9
Samsung accidentally confirmed that the name of its next smartwatch will be the Samsung Galaxy Watch, when the device unexpectedly turned up on the companyâ€™s US website.
According to a report by The Verge, the website featured a 42mm rose gold smartwatch, resembling the Gear S3 Classic, with Bluetooth connectivity. Other information such as pricing and release date were not given and it showed the model number SM-R810NZDAXAR, which matched earlier reports that Samsungâ€™s new smartwatch would be the SM-R800.
As per CNET, the name was initially assumed to be the Gear S4 but, as the listing showed, the name was revealed to be Samsung Galaxy Watch, fitting into the companyâ€™s Galaxy product line.
Earlier reports suggested that the watch would run Google Wear OS but latest reports show that it will run Tizen OS but in a new version 4.0. In the past, Samsung made Gear Live, one of the first watches to feature Android Wear, and the Samsung Gear 2, which ran a separate Tizen OS.
The company will be debuting a multidevice-charging option similar to Appleâ€™s AirPower technology. It is called the Samsung Wireless Charger Duo and it will charge the Galaxy Watch and the new Note 9 at the same time.
Samsungâ€™s AI Bixby will also feature as the watchâ€™s standard voice assistant; it is unclear whether or not Google Assistant will be an option.
The watch will also have a better battery life compared to its predecessor â€“ Gear S3 â€“ which could go days with a full charge; it is claimed that the watchâ€™s new battery will be 470mAh.
Its OLED display will be 1.2 inches big, sleeker and curved with a possible rotating bezel allowing for more modes or features.
As the leaked watch had a rose gold colour, there could be at least two more â€“ black and silver. It could also have design variants such as the Classic and Sport.
The Galaxy Watch will also have more complex sensors; the device could be used to track blood pressure, heart rate and even sleep apnea.
The price was not leaked along with the design on Samsungâ€™s website. But reports suggest that it could be around $350 price range.
