Samsung the Galaxy Watch 4 and Buds 2: What is expected
In its announcement, Samsung confirmed it will be unveiling “its vision for the future of smartwatches” at the event as well as “new opportunities for both developers and users designed to deliver a new era of smartwatch experiences.”
The Galaxy Watch 4 will run the new Wear operating system, which sees Google’s WearOS and Samsung’s Tizen OS coming together. At its Google I/O keynote in May, the company had revealed that the next version of Wear will come with better battery life, run all Google Play Store apps, and include fitness features from Fitbit. Samsung had confirmed that the next version of the Galaxy Watch would run all Google Play Store apps, including Google Maps, Gmail, YouTube. The watch is expected to offer more than a day’s worth of battery life.
Ahead of the launch, renders of the Galaxy Watch 4 have also been leaked by 91Mobiles. These indicate that the watch is slimmer in profile and could come with 40mm and 44mm sizes, along with 5ATM water resistance and military grade durability. The watch will likely have GPS support and an LTE variant as well.
Meanwhile, tipster Max Weinback tweeted that the watch will come with a BIA sensor for body composition, which could also tell the amount of body fat for a user. Again we will have to wait for Samsung to unveil the watch to see what new features are added this time.
