Major Galaxy Watch 4 renders leak shows off new design in all colors

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.

It’s unclear whether the bands and straps from previous-gen Galaxy Watches will be compatible with the Watch 4. Though based on the shape of the band fasteners and straps seen in the renders, we’d guess the answer to that question is no.

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.

Health and fitness will continue to be a big focus, with reports suggesting Samsung will offer a heart rate monitor, several fitness tracking options, and a BIA sensor that measures your body fat on both this Galaxy Watch 4 and the more expensive model Watch 4 model that’ll directly succeed the Watch 3. 
All of that will be coupled with 5ATM water resistance, MIL-STD 810G durability, and GPS support, according to the images. A blood oxygen sensor and ECG monitor have also been rumored, though these might be limited to the more expensive Watch 4 model in order to differentiate the two and position it as a more direct Apple Watch Series 6 rival. 
The basic Galaxy Watch 4 is likely to cheaper and may target buyers of the $279 Apple Watch SE. Expect both the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 smartwatches to debut alongside the Galaxy Fold 3 and Galaxy Flip 3 in the first week of August at Samsung’s next Unpacked event.
