    There's a week left to go before Samsung takes the virtual stage to unveil new phones, tablets, and wearables for the second half of 2020, but we have seen some of them through leaked images and videos already. Today, someone has published a video showing us the Galaxy Watch 3 in the flesh, confirming many of the features that have been rumored (some of them through our very own exclusives).

    The video shows the 41mm version of the Galaxy Watch 3, which has a 1.2-inch display like the 40mm Galaxy Watch Active 2 but with a physical bezel around it. The bezel has been slimmed down, and the buttons have also been redesigned, making the Watch 3 look more like a regular watch than any previous smartwatch from Samsung. There is also going to be a 45mm version of the Watch 3 with a 1.4-inch display, but that version doesn't make an appearance in this video.

    The Galaxy Watch 3 is shaping up to be a Galaxy Watch Active 2 with a physical bezel, and this leak doesn't do anything to change that notion. Features like ECG, IP68 5ATM water and dust resistance, Gorilla Glass DX protection, and 8GB of internal storage are confirmed in the video, which you can check out for yourself down below. Once you're done, do let us know if you're planning to pick up a Galaxy Watch 3 once it goes on sale.
