We don't yet know the identity of the next Samsung smartwatch, but it could come in array of new colors and the option for a stainless steel case.

That's according to a fresh report from SamMobile, which indicates the next Galaxy smartwatch - whether that turns out to be the Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 3 or the Galaxy Watch 2 - will come in gold, silver and black cases. The stainless steel models will be available in just silver and gold.

This is potentially open to change, according to the report, though it would appear Samsung is gearing up to launch with the same colors and option for stainless steel as it did with the Galaxy Watch Active 2 roughly a year ago.

When we could see this new Samsung watch, however, is unknown. Details are still scare, with Samsung's annual Unpacked press conference focusing on its latest smartphones, but industry whispers also indicate the latest Galaxy watch will feature double the storage of its predecessors, jumping from 4GB to 8GB.

We won't know for sure until that elusive launch date, which, if we're recklessly speculating, is likely to be in August, alongside the Note 20 smartphone.

Whatever Samsung has cooking up for the big reveal, let's just hope that touch-sensitive bezel is still at the heart of the experience.
