Gear S4 may end being called the Galaxy Watch and come with Bixby support

11 July 2018 3

Gear S3

It was first rumored in May that Samsung’s next smartwatch will rather be called simply Galaxy Watch than the Gear S4. Reportedly, many Samsung employees were seen testing out a new smartwatch with Wear OS and later it was concluded that Samsung could bring the watch running the Wear OS. But, it got confirmed then that it may not be the case; Wear OS watches were actually just one-offs made by Google that were given to some Samsung employees.

Well, the spotting can’t be nullified entirely. We now have something concrete to believe the next watch will indeed be called as Galaxy Watch.

According to the latest report, Samsung has registered the Samsung Galaxy Watch logo in its home country of South Korea. The company has reportedly filed the necessary paperwork with the Korean Intellectual Property Office last month. Also, the company has already filed for protection of the Samsung Galaxy Watch. However, it’s not clear whether the Galaxy Watch will run Wear OS.


In other news of the Galaxy Watch or the Gear 4, it’s expected that the watch will come with Bixby support. However, unlike Samsung’s flagship phones, the smartwatch will not have a third button to the watch. It’s highly possible that the Bixby will only replace the S Voice as the primary virtual assistant on the Gear S4.

Samsung is expected to unveil Bixby 2.0 alongside the Galaxy Note 9 and it could also be possible that the Gear S4 or the Galaxy Watch whatever Samsung ends up calling it will also include the Bixby 2.0.

The coming iteration of the Bixby voice assistant is expected to bring quicker response times so having it enabled on the upcoming smartwatch will definitely add value.

We don't know What this much-rumored Samsung’s smartwatch has with itself so let’s wait for more to collect information on the same. It seems unlikely that Samsung could bring the Gear S4/Galaxy Watch at the Galaxy Note 9 event that will happen on August 9.
