Samsung'sis coming soon, and the is to make their official debut there. But Samsung could also reveal a new smartwatch.
It's been a while since Samsung released a new, big clock version. Thearrived in late 2016, while a sport-oriented, smaller model, the Samsung Gear Sport last autumn, along with a slimmer Curved Display fitness tracker, the with many of the same features. It could also skip other hot watches this fall by announcing it before the and Google's expected .
August 9 isin New York, and CNET will be there. We think we know about Samsung's next smartwatch so far.
A name change: Goodbye Gear, hello Galaxy?
Originally it was assumed that the clock would be called after previous Samsung watches Samsung Gear S4. But the latest reports are increasingly saying that the name has been moved to Samsung Galaxy Watch. It would fit in Samsung's Galaxy products. (Does this mean that Samsung Gear VR would eventually become Samsung Galaxy VR?)
Previous reports also suggested renaming the Galaxy Watch, but in a watch with Google Wear OS. Which brings us to another question …
Will it run Tizen, Google's Wear OS software, or both?
Samsung is following its own smartwatch path with proprietary software, its own Tizen-based operating system, and apps that run independently of Google's Wear OS ecosystem (formerly Android Wear). The latest reports indicate that the Galaxy Watch will run Tizen in a new version 4.0.
But earlier rumors from Samsung Leaker Ice Universe state that Samsung's watch would run Google's Wear OS.
What if both rumors are right? There is a possibility that Samsung is now preparing one version, and another that will be running Google's Wear OS later.
It is not impossible or even so crazy. Samsung manufactures Windows 10 PCs, Android Wear watches, even while making a separate Tizen-based smartwatch, the Samsung Gear 2 .and with Oculus Mobile Software. It is not afraid to play with the operating systems of other companies. Samsung has also done this before: It made one of the first
Google is expected to launch a new set of revised Wear OS watches in the fall, but these watches will havewhile Samsung's watches use Samsung-made Exynos processors like earlier models could.
Samsung's AI is on its phones and a growing halo of products, and it seems inevitable that it will be on Samsung's newest watch as well. SamMobile's report from the Galaxy Watch with Tizen 4.0 also says that Bixby comes as the language assistant by default. (Is there a chance Google Assistant will also tap on it?)
A similar size as last year's Gear Sport
Droid Life noticed FCC registrations for the Galaxy Watch, which confirm a 1.2-inch display seem that matches the Samsung Galaxy Gear Sport last year, and would be smaller than the Samsung Gear S3.
The most likely result: The more ambitious features of the Gear S3 could fit into a smaller and more gear sport size
Better battery life?
Whether it's a larger battery or a more efficient processor, expect the next Samsung Smartwatch to improve past performance. Samsung's watches have actually outperformed the average, and the Gear S3 released in 2016 could cost a few days. But the Gear S3 is a big clock. In the past year, Gear Sport has traded some functions like hands-free for a smaller size. Samsung's watches have already done on-board sleep tracking similar toand but better battery life would still help.
The latest tweet from Ice Universe (above) claims that the new battery is 470 mAh. The Samsung Gear S3 Frontier from 2016 (pictured above) has a battery capacity of 380 mAh and the battery of the Samsung Gear Sport 300 mAh.
Could it have a sleeker design or a wild new display?
Last year, Gear Sport brought Samsung's smartwatches into a sleeker, more appealing design assortment instead of the Gear S3 Megawatch feel. Many reports point to crazy new display ideas that would be very Samsung. The new watch might have a second display in the rotating bezel that displays modes or additional features. A frequently-referenced 2017 patent features a second screen edge that could offer side-by-side inscriptions on pages such as the curved OLED edges of the Samsung Galaxy and Note phones.
Samsung's capabilities lie in OLED display technology, and previous smartwatches like the Gear Fit have researched curved displays, which is not out of the ordinary.
A new type of UX, hinted at by previous tweets from the Ice Universe, may be accompanied by a new display innovation. At the moment, this seems to be more of an opportunity for wild cards.
LTE Calling Should Be Back
Samsung has outfitted all other smartphones with smartwatches, and while the gearbox of Gear Sport has left the feature last year, it's likely to come back after the Apple Watch S3 has been mobile for months offering. Droid Life reports that LTE will actually be on board, but a pure Wi-Fi model exists as well.
Three colors, at least
Black, Silver, Gold: This could be your Samsung Galaxy Watch's color options, according to SamMobile. The June report also suggests two different designs that could be incorporated into Sport and Classic variants or something similar. (Samsung had in the past design variations of its watches, especially with the Gear S2 and S3.)
added health features
Samsung has integrated a partnership with Amwell in 2017 telemedicine into the Samsung Health Phone App US based telemedicine service. There is a great chance that Samsung's next wristwatch will also introduce new sensors: perhaps enhanced heart rate sensors, which may seek to track later rumors suggest a blood pressure measurement Board the next clock.or such as Apple and Fitbit. Maybe it could measure blood pressure: Samsung's latest have an experimental blood pressure sensor on the back that was in trials in recent months, and
Last year, Gear Sport cost $ 300 (£ 299 or AU $ 499) when it debuted last fall, and the feature-enhanced Gear S3 Frontier cost around $ 350 for the cellphone-equipped version in 2016 This seems to be a reasonable area for the next model, with or without mobile on board.
It seems like there is a mark 9
Recent reports say that a new Samsung watch has already been certified in Europe, which is imminent. It could be unveiled in late August in Berlin at the IFA, not at Samsung's upcomingin New York.
The latest report from ZDNet South Korea now states that the Samsung Galaxy Watch will actually be rated 9 and will go on sale in late August before Apple's expected Septemberand .
It makes a lot of sense for Samsung to unveil the Galaxy Watch alongside a new phone, especially when new integrated health features are integrated into an updated Health Mobile app.
