All signs in the sky and earth seem to confirm that Samsung Gear will disappear from the market, replaced by the Samsung Galaxy Watch line.
Until now, Samsung was known for its consistency in the nomenclature. The Galaxy S series was always flagship, and in September we could see the Galaxy Note. The wearables segment was similar. The difference is that instead of Galaxy, we had a Gear line whose leading representative was Gear S. Today, we learn about the reservation of the name Galaxy Watch also in South Korea. It all shows that the change will happen and the new watch will certainly have a different name than before. Let us remind you that earlier (in May) Samsung made reservations about these changes, among other things, in Europe.
New name = new system?
By delving into the genesis of the new name, we can come to the conclusion that the change of the naming system may also change the system . Looking from the perspective of the entire portfolio, it's easy to see that the Galaxy series uses Google solutions. That's why all smartphones from Koreans have Android. Does this mean that new smart watches will use the WearOS system and will Tizen be abandoned at the same time? Such information can be found on many foreign websites. It would be strange though. It would seem that the producer is trying to introduce Tizen to newer devices. Even home appliances are based on this system, which in the future will allow Samsung to create one large ecosystem independent of third parties. Let me remind you that there were also rumors about the variants of flagship smartphones based on the Tizen system. Probably the sports version will appear at the premiere, i.e. Samsung Gear Sport will gain a quick successor. The classic version of the product is to appear in two different sizes. Interestingly, for the first time buyers of the new Galaxy Watch will have to choose as many as three different color versions of the product ! Variants in which the equipment is to be shown: black, gold and silver.
Galaxy Watch – when the premiere?
If you can not wait for new watches, then you will wait for a while. Probably the equipment will appear with the new, ninth version of the galactic Note, that is during the August conference. As a current user of the Gear S3 Classic, I am seriously wondering what the new Samsung can show with the premiere of the new device, because using the current generation it's hard to point out major disadvantages. The market expects a better processor and a battery that will allow for even longer working hours. Is this what we get in Galaxy Watch? Time will tell. source: GalaxyClub
