First Non-Samsung Wearable Device On Wear OS 3: MontBlanc Summit 3

Published

on


Since Google launched the Wear OS by Google, only Samsung has been releasing wearable devices on this platform. However, the new launch of the Montblanc Summit 3 is taking Wear OS to a new experience.

Wear OS (also known simply as Wear and formerly Android Wear) is a version of Google’s Android operating system designed for smartwatches and other wearables.

Samsung ditched the Tizen OS and adapted the Wear OS alongside Google’s rebranded Wear OS 3.0 at the Samsung launch event in August 2021. Since then, no other wearable device has been released on this platform.

Montblanc International is a German manufacturing company of luxury goods based in Hamburg.

Montblanc took the opportunity to further cater to its audience with the smart wearable as a move to keep in all sectors of the market. Montblanc usually deals in luxury items such as pens, perfumes, etc., but this watch is seen as more of a fashion statement.

This watch is more likely to feature a stock Android experience as it doesn’t have any UI as Samsung does.

So why the Summit 3 is an important development because it will hint at what Google’s Pixel watch will be like.

We already expect Google Watch to be on the stock side, and seeing Montblanc has no experience like Samsung in UI, it’s more likely that it will be a fashion & status symbol statement rather than introducing any groundbreaking smart wearable features. Summit 3 was preceded by the Summit Lite, Summit 2, and Summit 2+.

MontBlanc Summit 3 : Features

  • It will include step tracking, sleep monitoring, blood oxygen measurement, and workout tracking. 
  • Google Maps will provide directions.
  • Google Pay offers payments, and Google Play is available to download additional apps.
  • Estimated battery life is unknown, but current Summit watches survive a day in terms of battery life.

MontBlanc Summit 3: Hardware:

  • Powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon Wear 4100 Plus processor.
  • The 42 mm watch features a rotating crown and two buttons.
  • 1GB of RAM and 8GB of storage
  • 1.28-inch AMOLED display will have a 416 x 416 resolution.
  • Bluetooth 5.0, Wi-Fi, and NFC.

It will also feature a heart rate monitor, a microphone, a barometer, an accelerometer, a gyroscope, and an ambient light sensor. Besides this, not much has been revealed about the hardware.

Colors & Variants :

The Montblanc’s sports titanium case with silver, black, or a bi-color option. The rubber or leather straps are black, blue, or British green, as per case and band combinations. It looks elegant, alluring, and classy accessory/device.

MontBlanc Summit 3 Price:

Montblanc Summit 3 will cost $1,290, and the smartwatch will be available to buyers as of July 15 in Europe & USA. Customers will be able to buy the watch directly from Montblanc’s website. 

On the other hand, the Apple Watch7 starts at $399 for the 41mm GPS-only model, which converts around 31,229.53 Indian Rupees, and the Galaxy Watch5 Pro-45mm BT version costs 40,526.92 Indian Rupees, which leads to the Summit 3 about 100,981.20 Indian Rupees, which is almost three times more than Apple Watch7 and about two and half times the Samsung Watch5 Pro-45mm BT version. Read about the other two here.

This seems okay when you see the manufacturer is a luxury brand like the Mont Blanc.

Wear OS 3 is also expected to introduce premium wearables from Fitbit, Fossil, and the Google Pixel Watch, later this year.

Samsung appears close to introducing its sixth-generation foldable phones, the Galaxy Z Flip 6 and Galaxy Z Fold 6, in July at the Galaxy Unpacked Event. Now the Galaxy Z Fold 6 is spotted on the Geekbench database. Let’s take a closer look at the detailed information. 

Although the Galaxy Z Flip 6 is already spotted on the Geekbench database, Now, luckily, in development, its sibling’s forthcoming Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 6 smartphone appeared on the Geekbench 6.3.0 benchmark database with the model number SM-F956U. 

The last letter ‘U’ in the model number points to the fact that this mode refers to a variant for the US market. It scored 1,964 points in the single-core round of the test and 6,619 points in the multi-core round. The listing reveals the existence of an octa-core processor with the codename pineapple, a 1+3+2+2 core configuration, and an Adreno 750 GPU. Apart from these, one chief core is clocked at 3.40 GHz, and the remaining three performance cores are at 3.15 GHz. 

This points out that Samsung could power the forthcoming Galaxy foldable with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3processor. The Geekbench database suggests that the Galaxy Z Fold 6 will arrive with 12GB of RAM and Android 14. However, the Galaxy Z Fold 6 already appeared on the 3C certification website, which suggested support for 25W fast charging, and now it is expected that this device will also visit other certification websites soon.

Samsung Prioritizes Faster Charging in 2024 Smartphones

Published

The first quarter of 2024 is already over; during this interval, Samsung has introduced several Galaxy smartphones of particular belonging, such as the flagship Galaxy S24 series, the Galaxy A55 and Galaxy A35, the mid-range ones, the Galaxy A15 and Galaxy F15, the budgetable ones, and many more. But the fact is, after being the latest smartphones, they have a lack of ‘charging speed.’ 

Undoubtedly, Samsung is leading the tech industry with its top-notch features, design, and larger batteries, as compared to other Android manufacturers, but despite all this, it has a massive lack of charging speed. Samsung usually attaches larger batteries to its Galaxy smartphones to enhance the users’ non-stop-using experience. But a larger battery isn’t worth it unless it has a good charging speed. 

On the other hand, Chinese manufacturers are equipping their smartphones with charging speeds north of 100W, whereas 45W is the maximum speed you can get on Galaxy smartphones. However, even 45W charging is quite rare among Galaxy phones. Samsung has launched most of the Galaxy devices in the last couple of years, including the flagship with support for 25W. 

Here we are making things easy for you if you are looking to buy a Galaxy smartphone that debuted in 2024 with the support of 45W charging speed by mentioning a list of devices: 


The list is quite short, even considering that the Galaxy F55, M55, and C55 are just rebranded variants of the same smartphone for different regions. Now Samsung is setting up to launch its next-generation foldable devices, the Galaxy Z Fold 6 and Galaxy Z Flip 6, in July, but it is yet to be confirmed whether these devices will get a boost in charging speeds from 25W or not.
