Samsung Gear S4 may release as early as August 9

The Samsung Gear S4 is rumoured to release on August 9 at the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 launch event. A year and a half in waiting, the smart-watch has many stipulated upgrades that make it almost a no-brainer to buy it.

The Samsung Gear watches have been the flagship smart-watches from Samsung that kicked off the smart-watch industry almost single-handedly. The earlier versions were focused more on bringing synchronization and a more hands-free experience (pun intended) to the user. After they almost perfected the formula, they started focusing more on the Fitness tracking aspect of the watches.

This year’s revision aims to bring revolutionary changes to the fitness and sleep tracking sector of the watch. A source confirms that Samsung is going to use the Panel Level Packaging process to ensure more tech can be crammed inside the device. This means better internals, more battery life ( rumoured to be upgraded to 470 mAh up from Gear S3’s 380 mAh ). It will sport built-in LTE for a tether-less experience. Also, it will help in saving costs and hence may make the Samsung Gear S4 cheaper than its predecessor.
One of the more surprising news is that Samsung may move away from the Tizen OS for the Gear S4 to Google’s Wear OS.

In yet another news, the name of the smart-watch may not be Gear S4 at all, as the company filed a trademark application in May 2018 for Samsung Galaxy Watch, strengthening the rumour for the switch to Google Wear OS.
All these speculations seem legitimate enough to be true, but only the future will tell us what we do get and what we don’t. With the expected launch so close, we can’t keep in the excitement!
