Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 gets MAJOR new software update

The upcoming iteration of Samsung’s smartwatches is due to be unveiled on August 5 alongside the Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy Z Flip 5G, and while we’ve heard a few whispers of what’s in store with the Galaxy Watch 3, today’s leak has filled in a few of the blanks. 

According to an inside source – the same one who tipped off the media on the date of the Unpacked event, as well as the Galaxy Beans – the Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 is set to come with gesture controls, a slew of new features, and it may not even be getting a new moniker in a re-branding move – similar to the treatment the Galaxy S20 series received.     

The biggest new feature is the addition of Bixby gesture control, with ‘confirm’ and ‘mute’ gestures being shown in the internal documents, as well as waking up Bixby with a gesture rather than a verbal prompt. You can see these demonstrated in the slides obtained by Gizmodo UK below:
