Samsung Galaxy Watch 4
Samsung also launched two variants of its new wearables, the Galaxy Watch 4 and the Galaxy Watch 4 Classic Edition. The Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 is powered by the new Exynos W920 5nm chipset which Samsung claims will offer 20 per cent better CPU performance and ten times better graphics performance compared to its predecessor in a smaller package.
The Galaxy Watch 4 variants will also be the first-ever wearables to feature Wear OS 3, Google’s latest operating system for smartwatches made in collaboration with Samsung. The OS will replace Samsung’s Tizen platform that was seen until last year’s Galaxy Watch 3.
