We’ve been talking about the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 and Watch Active 4 for quite some time. Now, press renders of the standard smartwatch have been published and they reveal an unexpected branding choice.
The Galaxy Watch 4 is the model previously known as Watch Active 4
The smartwatch that leaked earlier this week isn’t the Galaxy Watch Active 4 but rather the standard Galaxy Watch 4, per this leak. It features a sleek new design with a flat frame and no rotating bezel in sight.The latter shouldn’t be an issue because Samsung has fitted the smartwatch with a circular touch display covered in Gorilla Glass DX+ and two physical buttons, allowing you to control the new Wear software from Google and Samsung.
Corroborating the previously leaked images, today’s Galaxy Watch 4 marketing shots show off updated band fasteners. The images also point to at least four colors: Silver, Black, Rose Gold, and Dark Green.
Past leaks have suggested Samsung will offer the Galaxy Watch 4 in two sizes — 40mm and 44mm — and two connectivity configurations — Wi-Fi and LTE. A 5G model is very unlikely due to the added cost and energy consumption.

Samsung’s Galaxy Watch 4 will be one of the first smartwatches to ship with the new Wear platform, designed to replace Wear OS and Tizen. An efficient 5-nanometer chipset is rumored to be part of the package too.
