Thanks to a partnership with Google, Samsung’s next series of smartwatches will not run Tizen, but instead a renewed version of Wear OS. Apparently we get a look at the new Wear OS, the Samsung Galaxy Watch experience on an MWC panel on June 28th.
As part of the virtual MWC 2021 later this month, Samsung will host a session on its “New Watch Experience.” While Wear OS is not mentioned by name, it is quite clear what the company has in store. Samsung explains (highlight our own):
The Galaxy ecosystem with connected devices, services and partnerships gives people choice, freedom and opportunity. We are rethinking smartwatches, and creating new opportunities for both developers and consumers. And we improve security and give people the protection they need in an open and connected world.
There is not much that can be deducted from it, but it helps to back up the idea that Samsung switched to Wear OS thanks to the superior environment for developers and that this session will go over the transition for Samsung to Google̵
Whatever Samsung brings with it, we’ll see in a few short weeks on June 28.
In related news, GSMA just announced that there will be a personal MWC conference in Los Angeles later this year from October 26 to 28.
