The leaked images (by TechTalkTV) of the Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 show the new model’s design and UI. It seems like the device won’t have a major change in the user interface. However, the watch will use rotating bezels as a basis for users to navigate through the available functions. The design is similar to that of the Samsung Galaxy Watch 2, except for the two physical buttons on the right side. The smartwatch is likely to run the company’s Tizen 5.5 operating system.
