Is this Samsung's Gear S3 smartwatch?

Is this Samsung's Gear S3 smartwatch?
Even though the Galaxy Note 7 is now very much official, Samsung still looks poised to play a role at this week's IFA trade show in Berlin. The South Korean firm has, for example, already revealed that its Gear S3 smartwatch line will be unveiled during the big tech gathering alongside the Galaxy Tab S3. Thanks to a leak, we may have a glimpse at one of up to three potential models. 

Shared by the folks at SamMobile, the images seen below depict a Walmart listing for a Gear S3 screen protector. As you can see, the watch has a very traditional look and feel, though it's seemingly doubtful that we're looking at the real deal here. It's more than likely that the watch illustrated is simply a placeholder, so we'll reserve our judgements until something a little more concrete arrives. 

It is expected that Samsung will reel off three new smartwatch models in the near future; the Gear S3 Classic, Gear S3 Frontier and Gear S3 Explorer. Apparently, the Frontier and Explorer models will be aimed towards active consumers, while the Gear S3 Classic will be reminiscent of the current Gear S2. 

If these images are representative of Samsung's next wrist computer, are you impressed? Have your say in the comments!

I'm sure they will be giving multiple color options. It will look great in dark gray and black. Samsung is pretty good when it comes to giving people multiple color option on devices.

The watch could have been designed by rolex to attract more customers. Things like that has been done before, but it wouldn't surprise me if it wasn't the gear s3

God, I hope not. Go back to the gear s style, and I'll gladly sell my gear s2.

Same here, this small dial will look good on girls, I need something like Gear S with better software and newer hardware to replace my gear S.

Yep, the rotating bezel is to die for though.

With less than 1 week to go I am amazed that we have not had any gear S or moto 360 smartwatches leaks.
