Two of the smartwatch designs are completely round, while the third is square with rounded corners.

According to TechRadar, cameras found on the strap are thought to be linked to a new gesture recognition system.

Samsung already has several smartwatches on the market, including the Samsung Gear 2, Gear 2 Neo and Gear Fit, but all of those have taken on a square form factor so far.

With the IFA trade show due in September, we could find out more about these and other devices from Samsung then.
