It is based on the certification that appeared on the website of the Finnish testing company SGS Fimko and was the first to draw attention to it on the portal 91Mobiles. The watch is modeled SM-R865F and SM-R860. According to her, the model will be intended for the European market. The certification was received at the end of May.

The certification further confirms the charging of the watch with a power of 5 W. As in previous generations, it should be a wireless charging of the Qi standard.
The biggest novelty in the Samsung Galaxy Watch4 is to be a new system
Portal PhoneArena recalls that the most revolutionary innovation of the Galaxy Watch4 and Galaxy Watch Active4 smart watches should be a change in the operating system. In recent years, Samsung has used its own Tizen OS system. He also uses it, for example, in his smart TVs. Despite being a stable and optimized system, it still has little support for third-party applications.

For this reason, it should be replaced in the new generation of watches by a system on which Samsung is cooperating with Google. Both companies officially announced this a few weeks ago, but did not specify this system. Most likely, it will be WearOS, which will be adapted to the Galaxy Watch directly by Google itself. Samsung has used Google’s watch system in the past. It was the predecessor of the current system, which was originally called Android Wear.

A lot of information is already circulating about all the named products, in some cases even promotional images.

According to the GSMAren portal, Samsung has decided for Galaxy Watch4 and Galaxy Watch Active4 to reach for the Wear OS operating system from Google, which will replace the Tizen OS used so far.
The first information about this change was made public at the beginning of the year, and it looks like it was correct. The main reason behind this decision is the fact that Tizen OS is lagging behind in supporting third-party applications.
