According to a report from SamMobile, the wearable will be available in two different sizes. These include the 41mm dial with a 1.2-inch display and 45mm dial with a 1.4-inch display. The display will be 0.1 inches larger than the screen size on the Galaxy Watch regardless of the smaller physical dimensions. This likely means that the rotating bezel on the Galaxy Watch 3 will be thinner than the predecessor. We already know that both of the size variants will come in the stainless steel and titanium material variants. Also Read - Samsung Galaxy S20, Google Pixel phones get July security update
In addition, Samsung also plans to add 8GB storage in the wearable along with LTE and GPS for connectivity. We can also anticipate 1GB RAM on both the variants along with Tizen OS 5.5 out of the box. Beyond this, the images of both the variants surfaced online providing us with a little glimpse of the real-world design. Both appear to feature small design variations along with two physical buttons on the right side. Similar to past Samsung Galaxy Watch products, the unannounced successor will also feature an IP68 rating for dust and water resistance. The report also mentioned a MIL-STD-810G compliant design for ruggedness and durability.
The upcoming Galaxy Watch will also feature Corning Gorilla Glass DX for more robust durability. Talking about other features, the device will likely sport heart rate monitor along with 8-pulse reading photodiodes. The device will also feature support for blood pressure monitoring along with an electrocardiogram (ECG) sensor. We are unclear if the company will roll out the ECG feature to markets across the globe. As per the report, the 41mm model will sport a 247mAh battery, and the 45mm a 340mAh battery.
