The Korean technology firm is already planning a major event next month where it is expected to reveal its all-new and fully refreshed Galaxy Note 10 smartphone.

Our own Corbin reviewed the current Galaxy Watch Active and liked it for the most part, noting only a few small quibbles.

The rumored June launch window for the Galaxy Fold has come and gone, but Samsung is seemingly still hard at work on the futuristic foldable phone, with some 2,000 units of the improved model allegedly in the hands of testers all around the world, according to SamMobile.

This comes in the wake of Samsung Electronics CEO DJ Koh's recent reveal during a presentation to members of the press that more than 2,000 Galaxy Fold units are now being tested as of just a few days ago.

Android Headlines has shared what it described as an "official render" for the smartwatch.

The renders don't confirm any of the specs, but it does further confirms that the watch got the same look like the original Galaxy watch active. The Watch active has only been in the market for a short while, and that raises the suspicion that the Active2 might not be ripe for launch yet.

Given how early these leaks are, it's no surprise that pricing and availability haven't been mentioned.

Previous rumors had pointed to three color options - black, gold and silver - becoming available with the one displayed here evidently the black model.

If true, it appears that Samsung is set to release two sizes of the Galaxy Watch (44mm and 40mm) in Q3 of this year. There are still two buttons on the right side, though the top one is now rectangular and the bottom one has a red accent around it for an unknown reason.

It had also been said the Galaxy Watch Active2 will feature additional health-related features, including an ECG and fall detection.

That major event is taking place in NY on August 7.

After eight iterations of the Galaxy Note, Samsung will be finally be ditching the 3.5m headphone jack with the upcoming Galaxy Note 10.
