According to GalaxyClub – a source that has been right about Samsung leaks within the past – the corporate features a product in development under the model number SM-R840.
The original Samsung Galaxy Watch was mentioned because of the SM-R800 before launch, so this could be a replacement device therein series of top-end smartwatches.
But, last year we saw the SM-R820, SM-R830, SM-R825, and SM-R835 launch, but these were products within the Galaxy Watch Active 2 series once they reached shops.
That makes it a touch unclear what this new device is going to be called when it’s officially unveiled – it might be the Galaxy Watch 2, the Galaxy Watch Active 3, or something else altogether.
The model number also appears on its own during this leak, when within the past Samsung has often introduced multiple variants of its smartwatches at an equivalent time, with different sizes and LTE options.
The only spec included during this leak is that it’ll apparently have a 330mAh battery.
That’s a middling battery size for a smartwatch, and it’s almost like the 340mAh cell that was inside the Galaxy Watch Active 2.
There’s no guarantee we’ll hear from Samsung soon a few new smartwatches considering it launched the Galaxy Watch Active 2 back in September, but a leaked model number could also be a touch that a replacement product is nearing release.
Samsung is about to unveil the Galaxy S11 series on February 11 at an occasion in San Francisco, so it’s going to be we hear a few new wearables alongside those new phones.
If not, Samsung may wait until Mobile World Congress in February to unveil a replacement device, or it’s going to come later within the year instead.
