A new Samsung Gear smartwatch is expected to be announced in the next few months, and there's rumors that the Samsung company has some big plans for the smartwatch line.
We were expecting Samsung to announce the next Samsung Gear S4 or Gear Sport 2, but a series of new rumors suggests that Samsung may be bringing its smartwatch back to the Galaxy line as the new Samsung Galaxy Gear S4.
This news is intriguing, because the original Samsung smartwatch was named Samsung Galaxy Gear, and was also their only smartwatch that had android wear OS. Their subsequent smartwatches dropped the Galaxy name to what we know now as the Samsung Gear line with a different OS, Tizen.
This leads many to believe that Samsung is preparing to take their smartwatch line back to android, which has more apps and features than the current Tizen OS.
This would be great news for the smartwatch line, as Tizen is very limited in what it could do, and it seems not many companies are creating apps as much as they are on WearOS for android. This would bring more functionality to the Galaxy Gear line and make them a more fierce competitor to the Apple Watch.
Regardless of Tizen OS, we are still a fan of the Samsung Gear S3 and are excited for the announcement for Samsung's next smartwatch.
