South Korean tech giant, Samsung, is developing its next iteration Gear S smartwatch. Dubbed the Gear S4, the device is expected to have the model number SM-R800. The last iteration, called the Gear S3 rolled out with SM-R600 model number. This safely and closely indicates that the SM-R800 will definitely be the upcoming major addition to Tizen-powered series of Samsung smartwatches.
The Samsung Gear S4 is expected to feature an improved internal hardware as well as it will focus on health and fitness features entirely. The device is anticipated to be powered by Samsung’s S Health service, which also includes enhanced sleep monitoring as well.
Samsung is gearing up to unveil its upcoming Gear S4 in the year 2018. Further specific time and date haven’t been mentioned, however. The gear Sport, as well as the Gear S3, had seen the light of day in two editions of IFA earlier, so one might expect the Samsung Gear S4 to come at the IFA this year.
We have seen how Samsung recently rolled out major updates for the Gear S2 that comes with a new and revamped look alongside major functionalities. To recall, the update comes with a new app as well as shortcut widget. The app has got a pull-down gesture that is capable of allowing users to access quick panel on any display.
Samsung is also expected to launch the Galaxy Note 9 phablet which will come with new technology. According to the report, “Samsung Display has prepared three or four solutions for Samsung Electronics to embed the fingerprint sensor inside of the main display, and both are seriously considering one of the solutions.” This means that Samsung is very close to a solution. “The delay in deciding on the final concept for the Note 9 is due to the work in adopting the in-display fingerprint sensor. A final decision on adoption of the technology will be made by this month,” the source added.
