Samsung apparently leaked its entire wearable line through its app

Oops, I guess?

Oh, Samsung. It’s apparently not enough that you have leakers right, left, and center to show off all your cleverly-engineered gadgets before you’re ready to unleash them on the world – you have to get into the act yourself. Maybe in a bit of the old “if we can’t beat them, join them” mentality, as an entire lineup of wearables have been leaked through Samsung’s Wearable app for Android.

Before it was taken off the app stores, the front page of the app showed several new, unannounced devices, including the wireless earbuds we saw last week, a smartwatch, and a couple of fitness trackers. Twitter account @SamCentral was apparently the first to notice the Wearables app being uploaded ahead of schedule, tweeting out some images from inside the app.

The images clearly show the Galaxy Buds wireless earbuds, confirming the leaks from last week. The pictures also show the buds coming in two colors.

The earlier leaks and renders of the Galaxy Watch Active were also confirmed by the app, showing that the new smartwatch doesn’t appear to have the rotating bezel controls that is one of the best features of the prior devices in the range. That could indicate a redesign of Samsung’s Tizen OS, as it wasn’t the most touch-friendly to use. It also has a 40mm watch face and will come in at least two colors.

Also shown were two new fitness band wearables, the Galaxy Fit, and Galaxy Fit e. While we’ve known about the Galaxy Fit e due to a Bluetooth certification, the only thing we know for certain is that it is fitted with Bluetooth 5.0. We don’t know what the difference(s) between that and the non-e version could be, or indeed anything about what other sensors Samsung will have installed. Is the ‘e’ for electrocardiogram?

I guess we’ll find out on the 20th.

What do you think? Excited about any of the wearables? Let us know down below in the comments or carry the discussion over to our Twitter or Facebook.
