Samsung Accidentally Leaks Its New Galaxy Watch And More

Most companies like to announce their new products and then have them instantly available on their website after the big reveal. But Samsung likes to do things a little differently. The company has revealed their new Galaxy Watch, as well as a few other tidbits, by popping them onto their public-facing website overnight. Samsung had a full product page for the new smartwatch up and running although the the party-poopers have 404-ed that for now. So, what do we know about the Samsung Galaxy Watch range.

Droidlife has been tracking things on the Samsung Galaxy Watch front for a while now and says they spotted an LTE-ready model in FCC filings a few days ago. But the cock-up on Samsung’s site reveals a smaller, and presumably LTE-free, version will be coming as well. The leak was detailed enough to provide a model number for the 42mm Rose Gold watch, SM-R810NZDAXAR. That model number matches the FCC filings so we can be pretty confident this is the real deal.

The new Galaxy Watch will have buttons and it looks a lot like the rotating bezel is back. These are a departure from previous rumours, which suggested a button-free design.

Along with the Galaxy Watch, Samsung let the world know about new wireless earbud tech, the Gear Icon X, and a wireless charging dock. Along with everything that we know about the Galaxy Note 9, it seems we’ll be able to create a nice set of bingo cards to check off whether the leaks have been accurate at the next Samsung product launch.

The Galaxy Note 9 is expected to be announced in a couple of weeks, on August 9.
