Samsung is expected to release new smartwatches dubbed as Galaxy Watch4 and Galaxy Watch Active4 at the Galaxy Unpacked event for the Galaxy Z series in August. A few details about these wearables have been already revealed via the Galaxy Wearable application. Now, over a month later, some more information about these watches emerge.
According to an exclusive report by 머니투데이 (Money Today) (via @FrontTron), Samsung will be indeed ditching Tizen on its upcoming smartwatches. The new report reiterates previous reports that the forthcoming Galaxy Watch4 and the Galaxy Watch Active4 will run Wear OS.
This means Samsung will be using Google’s platform for its smartwatches after a 7-year break. The reason behind this is said to be the lack of mainstream apps on the Tizen platform. Even after these many years, KakaoTalk, a popular instant messaging app in South Korea still does not have an app for Galaxy Watches.
Further, this report states that the upcoming Samsung smartwatches will not support non-invasive blood sugar level monitoring though the same was tipped in January. Also, the report mentions different sizes than what Max Weinbach of Android Police suggested.
As per the Money Today report, the new Samsung Galaxy Watches will be available in the following sizes.
Last but not least, as per the Galaxy Wearable app, these wearables will be sold in both Bluetooth-only and cellular (LTE) variants.
