Samsung's New Gear S Smartwatch Confirmed To Launch Next Week At IFA 2017
Samsung has unveiled the Galaxy Note 8 today at its own separate event, now the South Korean company is planning to surprise everyone during the IFA trade show that starts in Berlin next week either. Samsung is confirmed to announce a new Gear S smartwatch at IFA and this information comes straight from the Samsung's own mobile division.
The news is coming directly from the DJ Koh, who is the president of Samsung's mobile division. He said, "If we can put in place properly a smartwatch that can monitor everything from your health and provide the information, then the market will grow. Today's sensors do not look like enough." The upcoming smartwatch is said to be the successor of the previously launched Gear S3 classic and Gear S3 frontier.
The upcoming smart watch is set to be called Gear S4. However, Samsung is yet to confirm the name. DJ Koh didn't talk about regarding the features/specs of the smartwatch, as reported by GSM Arena.
As the specification of the smartwatch isn't confirmed yet, there are chances that it might come with the Samsung's all-new virtual assistant - Bixby, which is now available globally. To recall, Bixby was firstly landed in the US a month ago and is now available globally.
The upcoming Samsung Gear S smartwatch is also expected to come with usual updates like -- faster processor and improved battery life. While on the design front, the smartwatch is said to see major design changes when compared to the last year's Gear S3. It is also speculated that the upcoming Samsung Gear smartwatch is going to be the first Gear smartwatch by Samsung to come with Tizen 3.0 operating system, as reported by India Today.
Coming to the Koh's statement, that last sentence means that everyone probably shouldn't expect any revolutionary new health-tracking features from the next Samsung wearable. Whether it will be named Gear S4 or Gear S3 Pro, it will be complemented in the Samsung's portfolio by the newly outed Gear Fit2 Pro fitness band.
