Along with this, the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 is expected to feature a 2D glass and sport narrow bezel design. The smartphone is expected to come with a titanium alloy frame.
Samsung is also expected to retain its rotating bezel design in the Galaxy Watch 4.
Another online report revealed that Samsung might not include the much-anticipated blood glucose monitoring feature in its upcoming smartwatch. A report by Korean news publication MT News revealed that Samsung will not include the blood sugar measuring feature in the Galaxy Watch 4 series.
Recently, Samsung confirmed that it will offer software support and updates to the present Galaxy Watch owners. In an official blog post, Samsung announced that it will offer at least three years of support to its Tizen-based Galaxy smartwatches.
This three year timeline will start from the time of the product launch. For instance, Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 was launched last year so it will get software updates till August 2023.
