Ah! Don't you just love it when a manufacturer screws up and gives us a look at a device that won't see the light of day for another two weeks? That is the case today with Samsung and the smaller of the two Galaxy Watch models that recently visited the FCC. Discovered in a product search on Sammy's own website for the Gear S2 timepiece, was the image and description of the Rose Gold Samsung Galaxy Watch under "Related Products." The link underneath the listing leads to a dead site.
The pictured smartwatch features a 42mm case, and should sport a 1.2-inch display. The model number is SM-R810NZDAXAR, which indicates that it is the Wi-Fi only model of the wearable. The SM-815 will be the LTE version of the Galaxy Watch, and based on the FCC documentation, the device support all four major U.S. carriers. The timepiece is expected to run on Samsung's own Tizen OS.
We should see the Samsung Galaxy Watch introduced on August 9th, alongside the Samsung Galaxy Note 9. Both products are expected to launch on August 24th.
It appears that Samsung has been tipped off about its mistake and has removed the image of the watch from the website.
