A Galaxy Watch 3 plugin for the Galaxy Wearable app recently revealed a few key features of Samsung's upcoming smartwatch, including fall detection and support for hand gestures. A hands-on video showing the 41mm version of the Galaxy Watch 3 has now leaked, courtesy of YouTuber TechTalkTV.

The upcoming smartwatch will have 5ATM water resistance, Corning Gorilla Glass DX protection, 8GB of internal storage, and an ECG sensor.

Samsung is set to unveil a total of five new devices at its virtual Unpacked event on August 5, including the Galaxy Watch 3 and the Galaxy Note 20 series. The other three devices that are expected to debut at the event include the Galaxy Tab S7 series tablets, Galaxy Buds Live true wireless earbuds, and the Galaxy Z Fold 2.
