Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 variants found certified, may not come with charging dock


When it comes to smartwatches, the Galaxy Watch is probably the most popular choice around. Samsung has thrived in this area with its Tizen-powered watches, but sources suggest that the company will switch to Wear OS this year. That's not all, the company might be looking to cut cost in some areas too.

According to MyFixGuide, some details of the Galaxy Watch 4 and Galaxy Watch Active 4 have appeared on China's 3C. Interestingly, the certification records show that both devices will be "sold without power adapter". In case you didn't know, this refers to the charging dock that's normally included with previous Galaxy Watch models. It's unknown if the company plans to sell the adapter separately in China or is planning to ditch it completely.


Speaking of the two watches, some other tech specs were also revealed. The Galaxy Watch 4 is expected to come in 41mm and 45mm sizes, while the Watch Active 4 will have smaller 39mm and 43mm sizes. Also, the 41mm is expected to have a smaller 247mAh battery this time. However, it's believed that the switch to Wear OS would provide improved energy efficiency and thus maintain battery life.

Of course, the battery life could also be worse, but we won't know that unless we get a chance to test the smartwatch. For now, we'll keep an eye open for updates so stay tuned to TechNave. Also, feel free to share your thoughts on what you'd like to see improved in the new model.
