Rumors are constantly building up about the smartwatches that Samsung may have in store in 2021, and according to a new tip, we may be in line for both a Galaxy Watch 4 and a Galaxy Watch Active 4 in the first half of the year.
It is according to well-known tipster Ice Universe on Twitter, who has specifically mentioned both models by name and then suggested that they will be here in “Q2” – which will be either April, May or June.
We do not get more information than that, but there is an interesting treat of information to take with us: Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 was launched in August 2020, which indicates that this year̵
The new leak will also indicate that Samsung is skipping the Galaxy Watch Active 3 altogether. It’s been two years since the Galaxy Watch Active 2, and there was no active laptop last year – an omission that has been something of a mystery.
At least if we get the Galaxy Watch 4 and Galaxy Watch Active 4, it should be easier to keep track of Samsung’s smartwatch releases and numbering system in the future – a flagship watch and a less expensive sporty variant.
Samsung jumped straight from the Galaxy Watch to the Galaxy Watch 3 (with Active 2 filling the gap), and it now looks as if company executives have realized how confusing it is for tech journalists, consumers and everyone else.
We’re starting to hear quite a bit more about what these smartwatches can have in the store. There are rumors that they will leave Tizen in favor of Wear OS from Google, and a couple of potential model numbers for the devices have already been promoted.
If the Q2 prediction is correct, we should get an official unveiling within the next three months. Assuming that Apple sticks to its usual planning this year, the Galaxy Watch 4 will be out three months before we see the Apple Watch Series 7.
