Samsung could be about to lift the lid on an all-new Galaxy Watch and it will make the current smartwatch strapped to your wrist look massively outdated. Rumours have been rife that the Korean technology firm has been planning to update its popular flagship tech timepiece but a new leak may have revealed exactly when that launch will take place and it could be sooner than we originally thought.
Although not confirmed by Samsung, some recently leaked images of the new Galaxy Watch have appeared online, courtesy of Evan Blass, and along with showing a stunning new design, there could also be a hidden hint about a launch date.
As spotted by the team at SamMobile, some of the images show a date on the watch face and this has got speculation growing that a release is imminent.
If you look closely you’ll see the date Wednesday 22 showing on the device. The only month left this year where the 22nd falls on a Wednesday is July meaning a release could be just a few weeks away.
It was originally thought that Samsung might unveil its new smartwatches in August during its expected Galaxy Note 20 keynote but that may not now be the case.

Along with that release date, the images also reveal a very classic design with a Samsung’s usual round face and dual buttons on the side which will no doubt allow users to control features without touching the screen.
Silver, titanium and rose gold colour schemes can also be seen along with a luxury leather strap.
You can also spot a heart rate monitor on the back of the device and the case also reveals that the watch will be water-resistant and get Gorilla Glass DX protection so it should survive the perils of your wrist.
Rumours also suggest that the Galaxy Watch 3 will get a 1.4-inch Super AMOLED display, 8GB of storage and will run on the latest version of Tizen OS 5.5.
Other useful extras that might feature is the ability to check your heart for any irregularities via an ECG monitor and the option to monitor blood pressure straight from your wrist. Samsung has started to roll out this vital blood pressure upgrade to its Watch Active 2 in Korea and is expected to roll out to more regions and devices in the coming months.
If a July release becomes a reality then expect more news in the coming weeks.
