Samsung is confirmed to announce a new Gear S smartwatch at IFA and this information comes straight from the Samsung's own mobile division. This event will likely happen during the event series in a Samsung-centric event in Berlin.
The Samsung Gear S smartwatch lineup will get a new addition next week, according to one Samsung executive. That is, if Apple's history dictates the releases of the near future. However, apart from this, Samsung's mobile president did not really give out much about the watch itself. "However, he also said that at the moment, the current sensor technology "[does] not look like enough".
The upcoming Samsung Gear Sport appears to have been recently confirmed by the Wi-Fi Alliance to arrive with Tizen 3.0 OS out of the box, which would virtually mean that the wearable in question could become the first Samsung device of its type to adopt the aforementioned operating system. However, he only teased that the next generation Gear S is coming out as a more improved version. Back then, the device was wild and weird - what with its curved display and physical home button.
While we know nearly nothing about the next Gear S smartwatch, the leaks for the Gear Fit 2 Pro have revealed it will have a 1.5-inch AMOLED display, 4 GB of onboard storage, a 200 mAh battery inside and will be water resistant up to 5 ATM, or about 50 meters.
Of late, Samsung has been concentrating on the excellent Gear S2 smartwatch while simultaneously recapturing significant ground on Apple with its industry-best Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge smartphones.
The upcoming smart watch is set to be called Gear S4. As like as previous Gera S3, it may have SIM card slot. It also has a dedicated Spotify app, highlighting the music streaming service's continued integration into the software packages of major hardware vendors like Samsung. There aren't many other places for a smartwatch to go at this point - no massive advances have been made in the field over the past year.
