Some photos leaked recently showed the ZenWatch 3’s circular form factor, three physical buttons on the right side, and two small connectors at the bottom likely to connect to the charger. While there hasn t been much disclosed about the ZenWatch 3, a recent FCC listing reveals a few features, including Bluetooth 4.2, Wi-Fi 802.11 and 5V 2A (10 watt) charger.

If Asus does launch the ZenWatch 3 on August 31, then it will go head-to-head with Samsung, which too is widely believed to be launching its Gear S3 and Gear S3 Classic smartwatches on the same day at IFA 2016.
