We’ve been anticipating a device called the Gear S4 for over a year and a half now, but instead Samsung introduced us to the Gear Sport at the tail end of 2017 and it’s currently uncertain what the next smartwatch from the company will be called.
Both the Gear S3 and Gear Sport have been impressive Tizen-toting watches but whatever Samsung plans to release next, all we currently know for certain is that we don’t know anything concrete.
Some of the latest rumors suggest Samsung will be focusing on the health, fitness and sleep tracking elements of the watch, plus the company seemingly wants to put a big focus on its internet connectivity too.
Then there are several futuristic looking patents point towards features that may be included, but nothing is for certain.
All of that said, we may even see Samsung opt to release a Gear Sport 2 before the Gear S4, while a trademark application made in May 2018 suggests the company may even call its next flagship device the Samsung Galaxy Watch instead.
You’ll find information on all of the patents, rumors, leaks and much more below, along with a list of the things we want to see from the next Samsung watch.
Samsung Gear S4 release date and price
We don’t currently know anything for certain about the release date of the Samsung Gear S4, but rumors heavily suggest it’s in development and we’ll be seeing it launch before the end of 2018.
Considering the Samsung Gear S3 was announced in August 2016, and the Samsung Gear S2 was announced in August of the year before that, an August 2017 announcement for the Gear S4 initially seemed likely. That didn’t happen though and instead we got the Samsung Gear Sport.
That suggests we’ll be waiting until the end of August for IFA 2018 to see the launch of the Gear S4, plus a series of separate reports have added further evidence to that too.
