In its announcement, Samsung confirmed that it will unveil “its vision for the future of smartwatches” at the event as well as “new opportunities for developers and users designed to deliver a new era of smartwatch experiences.”
The Galaxy Watch 4 will run the new Wear operating system, which brings together Google’s WearOS and Samsung’s Tizen operating systems. At its Google I / O conference in May, the company revealed that the next version of Wear would 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 will run all Google Play Store apps including Google Maps, Gmail, YouTube. The watch should offer more than a day of battery life.
Prior to launch, Galaxy Watch 4 renderings were also leaked by 91Mobiles. These indicate that the watch has a slimmer profile and could be available in 40mm and 44mm sizes, along with 5 ATM 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 indicate a user’s body fat amount. Again, we’ll have to wait for Samsung to unveil the watch to see what new features are added this time around.
