Samsung has announced that their smartwatches will continue from Tizen and will come with Wear OS in the future, and there are at least two new series coming in – Galaxy Watch4 and Galaxy Watch Active4.
Four devices (both setups in two different sizes) are certified by 3C (the Chinese mandatory certification) with a 5W charger, but more interestingly, neither of them comes with a power adapter.
The four variants are for the Chinese market, as Samsung always marks the devices with a 0 at the end of the model number. According to our source, SM-R860 stands for Galaxy Watch Active4 39 mm, SM-R870 is Galaxy Watch Active4 43 mm, SM-R880 is Galaxy Watch4 41 mm and SM-R890 is Galaxy Watch4 45 mm.
The first of these four is already certified with a 247 mAh battery, which means the other three are likely to get larger power cells. However, it’s pretty sad that Samsung has decided to stick to the 5W charge, and we should not be surprised to see last year’s charging station in the retail box as well.
The new wearables are likely to arrive in August along with the new Galaxy Z foldable smartphones, though so far we have nothing official from Samsung.
