The Samsung Gear S4 is the next wearable that will be released by Samsung and all users are keeping an eye out for news. There are plenty of rumours and leaks and they are quite exciting. We managed to take a look at all of them and we are here to share with you the latest news about the Samsung Gear S4.
The Galaxy Watch
The upcoming Gear S4 might have a different name. According to several reports, the Samsung watch will be named Galaxy Watch. This could be a clear sign that Samsung is ready to use Android for its device, as the handsets that use Android are sold under the Galaxy name.
If we take a look back at the Gear S2 we can see that the starting price was $299 for the Sport model, while the Classic model costs $349. Meanwhile, the S3 also used the $349 for the Classic version, and it came with a new Frontier model which had the $349 price for the base model.
If we try to anticipate the launch price of the Gear S4 it will be a bit more difficult. There have been many reports which indicated that there will be two different models, and they might be available in two different sizes.
We do not know for sure what will be the size for the LTE and the non-LTE models. The upcoming Gear S4 should also have a Frontier and a Classic version. Therefore, it is safe to say that the base price will be somewhere above $349. The prices should not go too high as the product should remain a rival for the Apple Watch.
Back at the IFA 2015 the Samsung Gear S2 Classic and Sport were announced. The tech show took place in Berlin on August 31, and the products were available for sale in the United States on October 2. The same thing happened for the Samsung Gear S3 Classic and Frontier. They were also revealed at the IFA, which took place on August 31 the following year. These models became available for pre-order in the United States on November 6 and they were launched on November 18. Things were pretty similar for the Gear Sport as well.
Therefore, it is safe to say that the Samsung Gear S4 will be unveiled on August 31 this year, and we can expect an October launch.
