Dubious images of the Gear S3 leaked


Last updated: June 19th, 2016 at 21:18 UTC+02:00

The Gear S2 smartwatch was very well received and now we’re looking forward to seeing what the company has in store for us next. There have been a few rumors and leaks about the Gear S3 but the latest seems rather dubious. A couple of images have leaked online claiming to offer us our first glimpse of the Gear S3 smartwatch.

The images show a smartwatch fashioned out of metal and in my view it looks a bit too similar to the 36mm Rolex Datejust 2. It appears to have the same fluted bezel and oyster bracelet that are iconic to the Rolex and I don’t think Samsung will come out with a device that looks so similar to the real deal and not expect the Swiss watchmaker’s lawyers to come down on it hard. It looks like we may have to wait a while before we get to see some images of the Gear S3 that have some aura of legitimacy to them.

We exclusively reported a couple of days ago that Samsung’s next smartwatch is codenamed Solis and that it runs Tizen. It’s the successor to the Gear S2 and is very likely going to have a circular display. While many would appreciate having a larger display on the Gear S3 there’s no evidence as yet to show that Samsung will move away from the 1.2-inch display size of the Gear S2. Samsung may unveil the Gear S3 smartwatch later this year in the fall.
