Samsung’s Gear S3 smartwatch was released in August 2016 which means it’s nearly 2 years old already making it overdue for a successor. There is a chance the successor, which should launch as the Gear S4 may arrive alongside the Galaxy Note 9 in August.
The Gear S4 has been seen at the ECC prompting speculations that it will arrive soon. And what better time to announce it than at the Galaxy Note 9 Unpacked event.
The ECC listing doesn’t reveal any specifications but lists multiple models. These models, four in total, should include a classic version, a classic LTE version, a sports model which should launch as the Gear S4 Frontier, and an LTE Frontier model.
Earlier leaks about the Gear S4 have said that Samsung will employ a new manufacturing process for the watch’s chipset, thereby creating more space for more hardware. The additional space will allow Samsung to fit in a larger battery into the watch.
