Leak confirms Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 series SKUs and unusually high pricing
The Galaxy Watch 3 is launching soon, with Samsung's latest smartwatch series possibly arriving as soon as July 22. According to past leaks and certifications, Samsung is planning to release the Galaxy Watch 3 in two sizes and with optional LTE. Evan Blass leaked images of the Galaxy Watch 3 in three styles too, including a "Bronze" colour that matches the "Mystic Bronze" versions of the Galaxy Z Flip 5G and Note20 Ultra on which we have already reported.
Now, Blass has published details on Samsung's full Galaxy Watch 3 product stack, including rough price estimates. As we have outlined in a table below, the Bronze edition will only be available on the 41 mm version, with Samsung reserving the Black model for the 45 mm edition. Silver will be available in both sizes, though. There will also be a Titanium model, but this will only come as a 45 mm watch and without LTE.
Additionally, Blass stated that the Galaxy Watch 3 will cost between US$400 and US$600. While this would make the Galaxy Watch 3 price competitive with the Apple Watch Series 5, it would make it considerably more expensive than the Galaxy Watch Active2. The latter can currently be picked up for a discount of around 10% from retailers like Amazon and BestBuy, but even the LTE models did not exceed US$450. However, Samsung tends to swiftly cut the prices of its devices shortly after launch, which may make the Galaxy Watch 3 a tad more competitive.
