While most of the Samsung leaks have been focused on the Galaxy S10, and to a lesser extent the foldable Galaxy F, we have been hearing bits about other Galaxy devices that will be unveiled at Galaxy Unpacked next week. Wearable devices that Samsung just out by accident, thanks to an early update to its own app.
The update was spotted by SamMobile, and show Samsung has added three new devices to the Galaxy Wearable (formerly Samsung Gear) app. That includes the Galaxy Active smartwatch, the wireless Galaxy Buds, and a new fitness tracker in the form of the Galaxy Fit e.

At the time of writing all three devices are still present in the Galaxy Wearable app, though there's no other information to be found - particularly since we obviously can't connect to any of the new kit.
The Galaxy Buds are the successor to Samsung's Gear Icon X, and word is they'll be coming with a wireless charging case. A case that you can charge up using the heavily-rumoured reverse wireless charging feature on the Galaxy S10, should the need arise. The Galaxy Watch Active is naturally a successor to last year's Galaxy Watch, though the name suggests it'll be more fitness focused that what was on offer last year. It's also been claimed that the watch with have a rotating bezel though later leaks claim otherwise. It's impossible to say at the moment, so let's not dwell.
We haven't heard a damn thing about the Fit e, though, so it seems Samsung may actually have a surprise in store for us. Albeit one that won't interest a lot of people, except those who are sick of the options available from the likes of Withings and Fitbit.
