Moreover, it is designed to endure temperatures ranging from +55° to -20° Celcius, and can operate at altitudes of up to 9,000 meters above sea level as well as 500 meters below it. The device comes with One UI 6 Watch pre-installed, which is based on Wear OS 5.

The Galaxy Watch7 will come in two sizes: 40 mm (40.4 x 40.4 x 9.7 mm in size and weighing 28.9g) and 44 mm (44.4 x 44.4 x 9.7 mm, 33.8g), but the case is made out of aluminium, and it will be available in Green and Cream colours.

The smaller version has a 1.3-inch 432×432 Super AMOLED screen, the larger one a 1.5-inch 480×480 display same as the Ultra.

The 40mm has a 300 mAh battery, the 44mm model has a 425 mAh battery. These have the same chipset, RAM, and storage as the Galaxy Watch Ultra, aside from battery life, the titanium case, and the extra water resistance (100m/10ATM vs. 50m/5ATM).

All of these watches are IP68, MIL-STD-810H certified, and has sapphire crystal glass protecting the display.

They also all have Bluetooth 5.3, dual-band Wi-Fi, NFC, dual frequency GPS, and the same sensors.

Galaxy Buds3 and Buds3 Pro

The Samsung Galaxy Buds3 Pro feature 2-way speakers with 6.1mm planar tweeters, 10.5mm dynamic drivers, and dual amps.

The updated SSC (Samsung Scalable) codec supports double the sampling rate for enhanced sound quality, but this is only for Samsung devices. For non-Samsung devices, the earbuds will use SBC, AAC, and support Bluetooth 5.4 Low Energy Audio.

The Buds3 Pro is equipped with Active Noise Cancellation (ANC), and constantly monitors the environment with features like Active Noise Control, Siren Detect, and Voice Detect. Siren Detect and Voice Detect automatically pipe in ambient sound so you can hear what’s happening around you.

A machine learning model assists with noise from the other end during calls, recreating a natural-sounding voice even in noisy environments. The Super-Wideband feature allows the Buds to transmit voice at 16kHz, double the capability of standard Bluetooth buds.

The Buds3 Pro has a light strips along the stems called “Blade Lights”. This light strip runs down the edge of the blade and can be customised using the Wearable app.

The Samsung Galaxy Buds3 have 1-way dynamic drivers (11mm) and offer Adaptive ANC and Adaptive EQ to adjust sound based on environmental factors.

The cases have transparent tops and the same battery capacity of 515mAh. The Buds3 Pro buds have slightly larger 53mAh batteries in each bud, lasting up to 6 hours with ANC enabled and 26 hours total with the case (or up to 7 hours/30 hours with ANC disabled).

The Buds3 have 48mAh batteries in each bud, promising 5 hours of continuous listening and up to 24 hours total with ANC enabled (or 6 hours/30 hours with ANC off).

Both models have the same dust and water resistance rating of IP57 (an improvement from IPX2 on the Buds2 and IPX7 on the Buds2 Pro). However, this rating applies only to the buds, not the case.
