  1. Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 will run Wear OS – but glucose tracking is off the menu Another week and a new batch of rumors around the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 and the Watch Active 4. We’re really excited about what could be seismic change in Samsung’s smartwatch line-up, and while rumors always been reported with caveats, it’s part of the fun of big tech launches – and this could be the biggest in wearables for years. Just the sheer volume of rumors around the release of the Galaxy Watch 4 make this a near certainty, and now another tipster has thrown their hat into the ring. Twitter tipster @FrontTron has spotted codenames associated with the Galaxy Watch 4 in Korean cellphone carriers database. That includes: Watch Active4(39mm, SM-R865N) Watch Active4(43mm, SM-R875N) Watch4(41mm, SM-R885N) Watch4(45mm, SM-R895N) You will notice that those sizes do not tally with rumors from last week, which we suggested were taken with a large pinch of salt. Those reports suggested that the Watch 4 would increase to 46mm and the Active 4 would launch in 40mm and 42mm sizes. Galaxy Watch4 & Watch Active4 are now registered in Korean carrier's database DB.

Money Today also predicts there won’t be a blood glucose monitor that has been widely rumored, which doesn’t seem like a huge surprise. Samsung does seem to be leading the race in this area, but it’s unsurprising the tech won’t land in time for a 2021 release. And that neatly brings us onto release dates. MT reports the Galaxy Watch 4 is on course for a “July or August” launch. Previous rumors have pointed to a slightly earlier appearance for Samsung’s new pair of smartwatches, with June touted. August would tally with previous Galaxy Watch launches and seems like a safe bet. And finally, Money Today has also quoted sources that say that Samsung will move to Wear OS, due to a frustration with After a month of quiet, we’re now getting a spate of similar rumors coming out around the launch of the Galaxy Watch 4 pair – and momentum seems to be gathering.

  4. Samsung to unpack new Galaxy Tab and Galaxy Watch over the next week Expect to see big changes in the next tablet and little ones in the smartwatch. Enlarge / Samsung teased two new devices to debut ahead of its Unpacked conference. Samsung Samsung has opted to release some new hardware ahead of its Unpacked conference next week. A shadowy teaser video gives launch dates for two new products: a tablet and a smartwatch. The tablet is likely a full-featured Galaxy Tab S6. The most recent entry in the tech company’s tablet lineage was the midrange Galaxy Tab S5e, which combined a selection of high-end offerings and lightweight design at a $399 price point. The video shows that the new Tab will once again come with an S Pen stylus, and a keyboard cover will at least be an optional upgrade if not the default. More details will drop from Samsung tomorrow, with July 31 set as the tablet’s unveiling date. The smartwatch will get its official introduction on August 5. Samsung’s February Unpacked event included a refresh of its wearables products, and the teased smartwatch is likely the followup to the Galaxy Watch Active. Expect to see only minor tweaks to the design and specs with the Galaxy Watch Active 2, since the original version only just hit the market a few months ago. Front-loading some of the product reveals seems to point to some major developments in the works for the actual Unpacked conference on August 7. The Galaxy Note 10 is due to be the highlight of the event, and we’ve already seen leaks about some of the expected design changes the latest model will be sporting. Samsung might also have more information about the Galaxy Fold, which is now slated for a September relaunch, and it’s long overdue to share some insights on the Galaxy Home smart speaker it teased a year ago.

  5. Always connected through more than 30 carriers worldwide Why it matters: While everyone was excited to hear about its latest flagship phone, the Galaxy Note 9 was not the only new product Samsung “Unpacked” today. It also unveiled an LTE-enabled smartwatch. The Galaxy Watch is Samsung’s answer to the Apple Watch 3. It touts advanced health and fitness capabilities and long battery life. It also stays connected even if you leave your Galaxy Note 9 behind by going through your cellular network. “At Samsung, we have a long history of providing consumers with choice, while maintaining innovation within our products, and we are excited to continue the proud heritage of our Galaxy line with our wearables,” said Samsung CEO of IT and Mobile Communications DJ Koh at Unpacked in Brooklyn, New York today. The Galaxy Watch comes in two sizes — 46mm and 42mm. The company claims the larger version can run for 80 or more hours with typical usage. The battery life in the smaller unit is significantly lower due to size constraints, but can still operate for at least 45 hours on a single charge. The Galaxy Watch supports LTE coverage from over 30 carriers in more than 15 different countries. This allows users virtually worldwide to leave their phones at home when they go to the gym. Untethered the watch can deliver messages, voice calls, GPS mapping, and streaming music. Some of the new wellness-tracking features it offers include a stress management app, a sleep monitor, and a fitness tracker. The stress app can detect high levels of stress and provide breathing exercises to help bring users back into focus. The sleep monitor can track all levels of sleep and give users feedback in adjusting their sleeping habits. The fitness tracker can track up to 39 workouts to bring variety into the routine. The fitness tracker also has a nifty little trick up its sleeve to help users watch their caloric intake. All you have to do is take a picture of your meal. The Galaxy Watch can then use “Bixby Vision” to log nutritional information on the fly. Better health through AI. In addition to the two sizes, the Galaxy Watch comes in silver, black and rose gold variants. There are also a variety of watch bands to chose from, and of course the watch face is customizable — it wouldn’t be a smartwatch is it weren’t. Some faces are realistic, even incorporating shadow into the bezel. The devices can also be configured to tick and sound hourly chimes. The Galaxy Watch has an ISO rating of 22810:2010 making it water resistant to a depth of 50 meters at 5 ATM. However, don't get too excited about using it for a dive watch. Samsung's disclaimer of its water resistance says: Samsung plans a slow rollout of the device. The Galaxy Watch will first be available in the US at select carriers and retailer on August 24. It then releases in Korea a week later on August 31. Starting on September 14 the watch will begin launching in other select markets worldwide. The 42mm version comes in Midnight Black or Rose Gold and will retail for $375. The larger 46mm variant only comes in Silver and will sell for $400. Some carriers will offer financing plans with payments as low as $15 per month tacked onto their bill. Source
