Samsung’s next smartwatch has been certified by the FCC and it will indeed be called the Galaxy Watch. The FCC also confirms other details about the device, including its display size and wireless connectivity support.

The Galaxy Watch was first spotted at the FCC by Droid Life. The FCC filings include sketches for the upcoming smartwatch, which feature a back case with “SAMSUNG GALAXY WATCH” engraved onto it. This is undoubtedly a confirmation that the successor to the Samsung Gear S3 will be named the “Galaxy Watch” instead of the “Gear S4.”

The FCC also listed the model numbers for the Galaxy Watch. There’s SM-R815U, which is believed to be for the U.S., and SM-R815W, which is likely for Canada. There’s also the third model number SM-R810, which is listed as being a Wi-Fi only model. The other two models will have LTE support and should work with networks such as AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile and Sprint. It’s possible that the smartwatch will be sold through those carriers or Samsung could sell the device unlocked, according to Phone Arena.

As for the size of the Galaxy Watch, the FCC filing listed the device as having a case with the dimensions of 51.2mm x The circular display on the device will measure 30.2mm diagonally, which is around 1.19-inches, as pointed out by SamMobile. For comparison, the Gears S3 Classic and Frontier both have 1.3-inch displays, while the Gear Sport has a 1.2-inch display.

Unfortunately, the FCC didn’t indicate if the Galaxy Watch will be running Samsung’s Tizen OS or Google’s Wear OS. Nevertheless, it was reported yesterday that Samsung’s upcoming smartwatch will run Tizen and that it will go on sale alongside the Galaxy Note 9 on Aug. 24. The Galaxy Watch is expected to make its first official appearance at Samsung’s Unpacked event in New York City on Aug. 9.
