Samsung is expected to unveil the Galaxy Watch 4 and Active variant on June 28th and release these watches in August, around the same time as the foldable devices, and we’ve already heard a lot about the smartwatches. Today, we get our first official look at the upcoming smartwatch and how it looks, and I have to say, I’m impressed.
91Mobiles is the source of the leak, and they’ve released the official media photos of the smartwatch that we’ve all been waiting for. These renders show the device from all angles, as well as the various color options for the watch.

The Galaxy Watch 4 appears to be very similar to the Active 2, and if that is the case, we may not get a Galaxy Watch Active 4 at all. But, rather than believing the rumors right now, we’ll have to wait for the official unveiling.
The Galaxy Watch 4 will be available in two sizes: 40mm and 44mm. There’s also a 5-meter water resistance rating, MIL-STD 810G durability, GPS, Gorilla Glass, and DX+ protection. The Galaxy Watch 4 will be available in a variety of colors, including black, silver, dark green, and rose gold. On the smartwatch’s edge, there are two buttons.
In terms of software, the smartwatch is said to run Google’s Wear OS, and we already know that Samsung and Google are working together to develop the new Wear OS. This excites me, especially since Samsung has such a strong grasp on its version of Android. A recent rumor claims that the Galaxy Watch 4 will include a BIA sensor, but we can’t confirm this because it wasn’t mentioned in any of the photos we shared.
I’m looking forward to seeing what Samsung has in store for us. Granted, my experience with smartwatches has been less than positive, but this could persuade me to reconsider, and it could also resurrect the dormant Wear OS. Let us know what you think in the comments section.
