Samsung announced the Galaxy Watch smartwatch in India back in September for a price of Rs 24,990 and from the looks of it, the South Korean manufacturer is now working on a new wearable which will likely be a successor to the Gear Sport smartwatch.
Sammobile has reported that a new watch codenamed ‘Pulse’ has popped up for development with the model number SM-R500 and will likely take the Galaxy Sport branding by the looks of it. The wearable will come with 4GB of RAM and will run on Samsung’s Tizen interface and still no signs on Google’s Wear OS.
Since being a ‘Sport’ smartwatch, the device will likely not equip LTE connectivity and will rather focus on fitness features. The Galaxy Sport is expected to come in various sizes, unlike the Gear Sport which only sold in a single 1.2-inch display version.
There’s also an indication that the Galaxy Sport smartwatch will feature Bixby voice assistants with support for Bixby Reminder. The latter is the same notifications feature which is available on high-end Galaxy smartphones. The publication also says that a similar feature will come to the Galaxy Watch through an update in the future.
The Galaxy Sport smartwatch is expected to be unveiled alongside the Galaxy S10 sometime in the first quarter of 2019 with features that will be more streamlined when used with the next generation flagship smartphone from Samsung.
