It’s all been a bit quiet on the Samsung Galaxy Watch entrance, after a bonanza of leaks again in March.
But unverified info from a Twitter tipster Nils Ahrensmeier has dropped some new rumors, that again up earlier whispers about Samsung prepping a complete refresh of its line-up – and gives some insights into what we’d anticipate.
Ahrensmeier confirms what’s already been reported, that two new gadgets are coming: the Galaxy Watch 4 and Active 4, including extra substance to rumors that Samsung will align the numbering of the 2 gadgets.
Just noticed that within the Web
Seems like there are some watches coming quickly.
Galaxy Watch4 (42mm) SM-R880
Galaxy Watch4 (46mm) SM-R890
Galaxy Watch Active 4 (40mm) SM-R860
Galaxy Watch Active 4 (42mm) SM-R870

However, he did reveal some probably new info. Ahrensmeier believes the Galaxy Watch 4 will are available 41mm and a brand new 46mm size – which suggests the biggest model will develop by 1mm.
The new Galaxy Watch Active 4, in accordance with the (we repeat) unverified account, alleges that it’s going to ship in 40mm and 42mm sizes. It appears illogical within the excessive that Samsung would release a smartwatch with simply 2mm separating two variations. We counsel taking a pinch of salt, and liberally sprinkling it throughout this rumor.
The rumor additionally does nothing to advance the large story of the Samsung Galaxy Watch refresh – that the corporate is shifting its gadgets from Tizen to Wear OS.
This has been repeatedly pointed to in earlier leaks and rumors, however as but there’s zero substance to again it up. It might be that Wear OS will solely land on one of many two new gadgets.
So what about timing? The Ahrensmeier leak talks about it being in June/July 2021. Samsung Galaxy watches have (usually) launched round an Unpacked occasion in August/September, generally timed round IFA.
As we’ve already seen the Galaxy Watch 4 go by regulators this appears completely believable – however as ever, watch this house.
