The Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 could be unveiled around June 28, if a leak online is to be believed.
Previously, a Google spokesperson told us there would be more news regarding Wear OS at MWC 2021 in Barcelona. And now, SamMobile has spotted a “Customer Experience” event scheduled for June 28 at MWC 2021 titled “Galaxy Ecosystem / New Watch Experience / Mobile Security”.
Given that the event is labeled “Customer Experience,” it seems likely that this event could follow a more formal unveiling in the preceding days. No press conferences or Unpacked events have been announced yet.
“We are reinventing smartwatches, creating new opportunities for developers and consumers. And we’re improving security, giving people the protection they need in an open and connected world, ”the event description read.
The event will run from 7:15 p.m. to 8:15 p.m. CET, which is 10:15 a.m. PT / 1:15 p.m. ET.
Previous leaks had suggested a launch at MWC 2021, which is billed later than usual this year in late June. The event usually takes place in February. Samsung has historically launched its range of smartwatches around major trade shows.
We already know a lot about the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4, both from the official Google I / O announcements and from the leaks.
We know that Samsung’s upcoming smartwatches will run a unified operating system, with Wear OS and Tizen functionality merged. We’re not sure exactly what it will be officially called, but Wear OS 3.0 has been spotted online.
Model numbers online indicate two smartwatches (Galaxy Watch 4 and Active 4) appearing in multiple sizes, with LTE and Bluetooth variants only.
Of course, that could just be a deeper dive into the unified operating system – but it seems very unlikely that a hardware giant like Samsung will make it to MWC and talk (basically) about Google’s operating system, without first showing the material.
Thus, an unveiling on June 27 and 28, with a sale in July-August, seems to be on track. Write it down in your calendars, as it could very well be broadcast online.
