Samsung Galaxy Watch, former Gear S4, will have Tizen OS, as well as LTE support

We’ve just learned about Samsung Galaxy Note 9 being made official and now we have more news about Samsung’s greatly awaited smartwatch, which was until now known under the name of Gear S4 but was renamed as Samsung Galaxy Watch. The South Korean company has decided to rebrand the device in order for it to resemble the Galaxy phone brand more.

Official news from Samsung

Based on the rumors that were circulating on the internet not long ago, people were expecting the new device to run Google’s Wear OS. We know now that the Galaxy Watch will instead run Tizen 4.0. The tech giant announced that the new smartwatch can be used in 15 different countries, across 30 carriers. The device will also have LTE connectivity, and it appears that users will not have to charge the watch daily anymore, as the battery is supposed to last as much as up to 80+ hours, according to the company. So this is definitely great news for the fans.

Specifications of the new smartwatch

The Galaxy Watch will come in two different sizes, offering users the possibility to choose from either a 46mm or a 42 mm option, with each having a 1.3-inch and a 1.2-inch Super AMOLED display respectively. The 46mm watch will include a 472mAh battery, while the 42mm version will have a 270mAh battery. Some of the other features of the new device are an Exynos 9110 processor, IP68 water and dust protection, Gorilla Glass DX+, as well as a heart rate monitor.

When it comes to the price, the price of the 46mm model will be $350 and the 42mm variant will be available for $300. As far as the LTE variants are concerned, their prices will depend on the carrier. For now, we do not have an exact launch date, but surely it will follow soon.
