Here are 12 things we’ve learned about the Samsung Gear S4

Samsung launches his new smartwatch Gear S4 in this year, The Gear S3 Classic, its manly spinoff, the Gear S3 Frontier, and the sporty Gear Sport were all excellent wearables which definitely set our hopes high for the upcoming Samsung Gear S4 Design. Here are 12 things we’ve learned about the Samsung Gear S4

Rumor: Samsung Gear S4 Design, Features, Price and Release date

  1. The Gear S4 could arrive as soon as next month. It is rumored for release alongside the Galaxy Note 9 at Samsung’s Unpacked 2018 event in New York City on August 9th. The early release might give it an edge over products from other companies which are expected from September onwards. Reports say the Gear S4 has already been certified in Europe which points to an imminent release.
  2. Samsung Gear S4 certification via the ECC (Eurasian Economic Commission), indicating that the company may be preparing its device for launch.
  3. The Gear S4 wireless charger has now received its certification in South Korea and the listing has confirmed the Gear S4 model numbers in the process. Samsung is testing the LTE variants of this smartwatch in the United States.
  4. The Gear S4 could be the first of Samsung’s smartwatches that comes in gold.
  5. The watch is expected to have the same round-faced design, but it should be thinner and lighter than the S3. This should not be a difficult feat considering the S3 is a pretty chunky animal.
  6. Expect the usual upgrades to the processor and memory.
  7. The watch looks set to have LTE connectivity. This allows you to leave your smartphone behind while still staying in the loop on messages and calls. So far, LTE watches have been few and far between.
  8. The smartwatch is also expected to come with better health and fitness features. The S Health app will be getting more in-depth sleep tracking and possibly more.
  9. Some reports even speak of blood pressure monitoring. The company has apparently figured out how to take readings from the wrist. Similar to the way a light sensor is used for measuring heart rate, the new sensor works by shining polarized light and then sensing the intensity of the scattered light. If the technology proves accurate, it means you’ll be able to monitor your blood pressure around the clock directly from your smartwatch. A game changer as no one else has managed this so far.
  10. We are expecting two variants of the new wearable with a Classic and more rugged, sporty version possibly being revealed.
  11. The current Gear S3 includes a 380mAh battery but this will be bumped up to 470mAh. The bigger capacity along with a more efficient processor should extend the 3 days you get on the current generation watch.
  12. Some rumors speak of a new name. Instead of Gear S4, the timepiece could be called the Samsung Galaxy Watch. This would make it fit neatly into Samsung’s existing range of Galaxy products.
