As the August 5th unveiling draws closer, we've been learning more about Samsung's upcoming smartwatch. The Galaxy Watch3 will come in both 41mm and 45mm options with 8GB of storage and 1GB of RAM.

But now we're getting one of our best looks at the smartwatch to date, as a tech YouTuber has posted an unboxing of the Watch3 before it goes on sale.

Samsung Electronics vows to use more environmentally sustainable packaging, including bioplastics and paper

Samsung Electronics vows to use more environmentally sustainable packaging, including bioplastics and paper

Unboxing electronics is such a pleasant activity that whole sections of YouTube are dedicated to the subject, but the environmental repercussions of all those molded plastic trays, shrink wrap, and fiddly plastic cable ties can be higher than you think. Odds are, you're just going to throw it all away or toss it in your closet, making reuse unlikely. To offset all that waste, Samsung Electronics has decided to start replacing plastic in its packaging with more sustainable materials, like paper and recycled or bioengineered plastics.

T-Mobile Hits A Rally Track To Unbox The LG G5 And Show Off Some Accessories

I don't consider unboxing videos to be a particularly exciting form of entertainment, but at least they give you an idea what to expect when you bring a gadget home. Well, not all of them fit this mold. T-Mobile's latest video shows employee Des unboxing the LG G5 in the passenger seat of a rally car.

Samsung's 'Seven Days Of Unboxing' Promotion For The Galaxy S7 Features A Painting Llama

Samsung's 'Seven Days Of Unboxing' Promotion For The Galaxy S7 Features A Painting Llama

Phone manufacturers are having a harder and harder time getting our attention when it comes to drumming up interest for new releases. LG decided that cheeky marketing would be best when announcing cases and covers for phones that don't officially exist yet. In contrast, Samsung has decided to be just plain baffling. In the "Seven Days of Unboxing" promotion, Samsung lets someone see the new phone (which is almost certainly a Galaxy S7 and/or S7 Edge) for 30 seconds, after which they get to make an artist's interpretation for the audience.

[Video] T-Mobiler Posts Quick Unboxing Video Of Nexus 6 (Spoiler: It's A Box, And There's A Nexus 6 Inside)

[Video] T-Mobiler Posts Quick Unboxing Video Of Nexus 6 (Spoiler: It's A Box, And There's A Nexus 6 Inside)

Wondering what the Nexus 6's box looks like? Wonder a little less - a T-Mobile employee just posted an unboxing of his test unit phone on Vine (given that he's a social media evangelist, I'm guessing he got the OK).

It's a phone, and it's inside a box. A white box. With some red accents. Also, a giant embossed 6 on the front. Pretty different from the kind of packaging we've seen on other Nexuses to date.

Nexus 7 Unboxing Video IV: Iron Fist Of The Monkey Returns With A Vengeance

Nexus 7 Unboxing Video IV: Iron Fist Of The Monkey Returns With A Vengeance

When a new Nexus device is released, there are a few things that can be expected: a new version of Android, a stock user experience, and a certain three ninjas unboxing the device in the most ninja-way possible. These three facts also ring true for the Nexus 7, and this time around the Ninjas are up against more than just each other - UFC welterweight Georges St Pierre takes on the role of Dr. Paul to unbox (and defend) the Nexus 7 in a way that only a badass such as himself can do.

Like previous Ninja's Unboxing videos, stop-motion master Patrick Boivin handled the direction work on this one, and even took the time to throw in a few hidden Android/Nexus gems.

ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity Unboxed, Benchmarked, And Compared To The New iPad

ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity Unboxed, Benchmarked, And Compared To The New iPad

ASUS officially announced the Transformer Pad Infinity (TF700T for those who prefer model numbers) back at Mobile World Congress in February. In terms of hardware, the Infinity is nearly identical to the Transformer Prime, but it features a higher resolution 1920x1200 Super IPS+ display, improved Wi-Fi and GPS reception, and a higher resolution front facing camera.

Since the official announcement, ASUS has been pretty quiet - it has yet to come out with an official release date or finalized pricing. However, it looks like the time is getting close, as Richie's Room has taken the TF700T for a spin, and even took the time to compare it to the new iPad (the results may surprise you).

Google's Monday Android Surprise? Ninja's Nexus Unboxing 3 - This One Might Take You A While

Google's Monday Android Surprise? Ninja's Nexus Unboxing 3 - This One Might Take You A While

Every Nexus release thus far has been accompanied by a neat YouTube-based Nexus Unboxing video craziness (see 1 and 2). The Galaxy Nexus launch in the U.S. is no exception - in fact, it turns out to be the subject of Android's tease this past weekend (which some folks found kind of disappointing considering the level of expectations reached something like FREE NEXUS FOR EVERYONE!!11, ICS for all devices, and the release of Majel).

Ninja's Unboxing 3, as before, takes over the fake YouTube video page, but this time gets down 8-bit style. 3 levels later, and... never mind, I won't tell you how it ends - nobody likes spoilers, right?
