A couple of months back, there are leaks about the upcoming smartwatch from Samsung. Samsung is expected to launch the Gear S4 as the successor to last year’s Gear S3. While the previous-gen Gear smartwatches came with in-house Tizen OS, the upcoming smartwatch will be running on Google’s Wear OS. Apart from smartwatches, Samsung has launched Tizen-powered smartphones, smart TVs, and other home electronics.
As of now, there is no confirmation whether Samsung is completely ditching the Tizen OS for its upcoming smartwatches or not. While there are rumors suggesting the upcoming Gear S4 to launch as Galaxy Watch, the company is now said to have registered the Galaxy Watch logo in South Korea. The company even filed a trademark for the Galaxy Fit. Last year, the company just launched the Galaxy Fit 2 Pro as an upgrade to the original Galaxy Fit 2 launched in 2016.
Along with the Galaxy Watch, the company might also launch the next-gen Galaxy Fit fitness band. As there is no official confirmation from the company, take these details with a pinch of salt. While the Galaxy Note 9 is scheduled to be unveiled at the Unpacked event on August 26th in New York, we don’t expect Samsung to launch these new wearables on the same stage. However, the IFA 2018 will be the perfect stage for the launch of Galaxy Watch and also the Galaxy Tab S4.
Based on the rumors, the Galaxy Watch ( a.k.a Gear S4) will be sporting large battery and might even measure the blood pressure. Let’s wait and see, what new features Samsung will be offering with the upcoming smartwatch. Stay tuned on PhoneRadar for more details!
