While it is unlikely that Samsung will again launch the Galaxy Fold at the big Unpacked event dedicated primarily to the Note 10 announcement early next month, we expect more than one new product to be presented on the New York City stage.
It seems that the largest smartphone manufacturer in the world also has a high-end tablet and a first-class smartwatch, the last of which has been photographed and played repeatedly over the last few weeks, with some key selling points that are also revealed in a detailed report from a solid source. Another reputable publication has some new internal information to add to today’s equation, which essentially leaves prices and real commercial release date as the only important questions unanswered at this time.
Galaxy Watch Active 2 Will Go after the Apple Watch Series 4, May Be Next Year
No, this does not mean that the launch of the Tizen technology smartwatch was delayed until 2020. However, it could be said that the most exciting update of the original Galaxy Watch and Galaxy Watch Active will apparently be disabled for a while time after the new portable device. The device makes its debut. We are talking about the app of the ECG (electrocardiogram), which has not yet been approved by the FDA.
This is not surprising, remember the update of the Apple software that allows the ECG and was released for the company’s latest smartwatch several months after its actual release. But it seems that users of Galaxy Watch Active 2 will have to wait much longer to activate the rescue feature at some point in the first half of 2020. It is not good for Samsung waste more time after being hit for a whole year, so even if it is not clear when the FDA could give its blessing, the company plans to promote the inactive function in the August 7 event.
In fact, Samsung wants to focus more than ever on the health and wellness features of advertising, including some new heart rate features that will be immediately available, such as alerting users to unusually high or low indicators. No word on a fall detector similar to the one incorporated by the Apple Watch Series 4, but a previous report suggested that it was also in the works.
Three Models, Two Sizes, Different Elegant Color Combinations
At this point, you must be wondering what happened to the normal Galaxy Watch 2, which was rumored before with the code name Renaissance. We have no idea, but this new report states that the Galaxy Watch Active 2 is actually the result of the Renaissance project, which is halfway between the Galaxy Watch and the Active watch. This probably means that even a nicer Galaxy Watch 2 is in preparation and will be released next year, although the Galaxy Watch Active 2 is fairly easy to see.
We are faced with a smart circular watch with a beautiful Super AMOLED screen and a high-quality stainless-steel frame in an LTE-enabled variant, replaced by a slightly less durable aluminum casing on Bluetooth-only models. A third version is also expected to completely depend on Bluetooth connectivity while presenting the shared Under Armor brand to attract sportswear enthusiasts and compete against players like the Fitbit Ionic Adidas Edition and Apple Watch Nike +.
The three main models are prone to come in sizes of 40 and 44 mm, unlike the Galaxy Watch, which measures 42 or 46 mm, and the Galaxy Watch Active, which has a unique box size of 40 mm. The most interesting part is that the Apple Watch Series 4 is sold in sizes of 40 and 44 mm.
As for the tones, it seems you have many options here, since the Bluetooth variants will be available in blue, silver and rose gold, while the models with cellular capacity will combine a black box with a black strap, a gold case with band brown and rose gold body with a pink strap to give a touch of distinction.
Other features that are rumored include all the predictable things, from Samsung Pay and Bixby to integration with Samsung Health, personal training on the device and sleep monitoring, as well as limited LTE capabilities for pairing Android phones.
