  • A new leak has revealed the key new software features of Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Watch 3.
  • The Galaxy Watch 3 will come with several new watch faces, a revamped weather app, and information edges.
  • The smartwatch is tipped to debut on July 22.

The first press renders of Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Watch 3 surfaced online last week, giving us a clear look at it from nearly all sides. Tipster Max Weinbach has now managed to get his hands on the firmware for the upcoming smartwatch and revealed some of the new software features that it will bring to the table.

As per Weinbach, Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 will come with several new watch faces, which will also be more customizable than before. With “information edges” in watch faces, users will be able to add information like the date, day, weather, their heart rate, and more along the edges of a watch face.

In addition to new watch faces and information edges, the Galaxy Watch 3 will offer a revamped weather app, which will show backgrounds that reflect the weather conditions it is showing. The smartwatch will come with a new music widget as well. Additionally, it looks like Samsung has decided to replace its own Email app with Outlook on the Galaxy Watch 3. The watch will come with the Spotify app built-in and offer around 5.3GB of free space to users.

Unfortunately, the latest leak also suggests the smartwatch will lack MST support, which means you will have to rely on NFC for mobile payments.
