Last week images of the new Samsung Galaxy Fit 3 were revealed, but now we have more news about the brand’s next wearable.
Apparently, the smartband will hit the market with a significant price increase compared to the previous model and will be launched sooner than expected.
Samsung Galaxy Fit 3 hits the market in the first half of 2024
It’s been more than three years since Samsung launched the Galaxy Fit 2. But, according to the South Korean giant, the smartband continues to have a loyal user base who are waiting for the next iteration of the wearable.
And the news couldn’t be better. The Asia Economy website is reporting that Samsung will launch the new Galaxy Fit 3 in the first half of 2023. The aforementioned website is sourced from a Samsung employee who assured that there were many requests for a new iteration of the smartband to be launched.
The bad news is that the wearable will hit the market with a significant increase in price. Rumors say that Samsung will make the Galaxy Fit 3 available for a cost of 77 dollars, approximately 70 euros.
For comparison purposes, the starting price of the Galaxy Fit 2 was around 35 euros. In other words, the new iteration could double its cost. However, taking into account that the last model of this wearable was launched more than three years ago, several equally significant improvements are expected.
What we already know about the Samsung Galaxy Fit 3
Meanwhile, Samsung’s new wearable has already undergone two international certifications that revealed a little insight into its specifications. The smartband is then expected to arrive with a larger sensor for heart rate monitoring and non-removable bracelets.
Another new feature will be a larger battery with 200 mAh, 41 mAh larger than the unit included in the previous model of the smartband.
Other rumors also point to a larger screen and the integration of GPS in the new Galaxy Fit 3. This last feature may justify the option for a larger battery in the new wearable.
