Samsung is set on ‘reimagining smartwatches’ at its MWC event

Samsung is all set to host its virtual event as part of this year’s Mobile World Congress (MWC) on June 28. There’s a high probability that Samsung’s and Google’s new upcoming smartwatch platform — which will merge Wear OS and Tizen together is likely to debut at this event. Samsung announced that MWC will mainly focus on the Galaxy ecosystem, its new watch experience, and mobile security. The event will be streamed on June 28th from 1:15 – 2 pm ET. You can watch the event in real-time via the live stream on Samsung’s official YouTube channel and the Samsung Newsroom site.

From the official webpage of MCW, it’s quite evident that we’ll be getting a preview of what Samsung has planned for the future of its smartwatches. Samsung is “reimagining smartwatches, creating new opportunities for both developers and consumers,” says the webpage.

In a recent release of a teaser on Samsung’s website, Samsung gave some insight into what the company could announce at the event. The teaser image shows a foldable phone, a tablet, and silhouettes of a smartwatch. The image also shows a logo of Samsung’s Knox security solution.

Despite the teaser hinting at the launch of new Samsung devices, it is more likely that the event will be more centered around the eventual future of wearables. Speaking of which, the Galaxy Watch 4 is expected to launch at the virtual event. The watch will be powered by Wear experience that will include elements of Google’s Wear OS, the original Tizen platform that powered Samsung’s older watches, and Fitbit as well. The watch is relied upon to proceed with its two-day battery life too, which has been a key feature of Samsung watches.

In any case, the new Galaxy Watch 4 will run the Play Store also and accompany Google applications like Gmail, Google Maps, Assistant, and so on A LTE variation of the upcoming Galaxy Watch 4 has effectively been spotted in an FCC posting, based on earlier reports by Android Authority.
