Galaxy Watch 4 Facelift in 2024? Here’s What May Change
Samsung launched the Galaxy Watch 4 (review) back in 2021, which makes the smartwatch dated by now. However, it remains a popular option for many fans due to its reduced price when compared to the newer Galaxy Watch 5 or the latest Galaxy Watch 6 (review). It turns out Samsung may relaunch the Galaxy Watch 4 in 2024 to satiate fans of the timepiece. Chances are it will sport beefier specifications including a faster processor and better sensor to befit the facelift.
According to Winfuture’s resident journalist and frequent tipster Roland Quandt, Samsung plans to introduce the Galaxy Watch 4 (2024) alongside the Galaxy Tab S6 Lite (2024) this year. While this is not surprising for the tablet given Samsung had made a similar move before with the original Galaxy Tab S6 Lite back in 2022, it would be the first time for the South Koreans to relaunch a Galaxy Watch.
What could be different on the Galaxy Watch 4 (2024) or Galaxy Tab S6 Lite (2024)?
Unfortunately, there are no further details apart from the possible return of these devices. Based on the previous relaunch efforts by the company, both the 2024 versions of Galaxy Watch 4 (and Watch 4 Classic) and Galaxy Tab S6 Lite might feature a newer chipset and could likely boot on the latest operating systems as well.
The Galaxy Watch 4 (2024) may share the same Exynos W930 processor as the Galaxy Watch 6, which would make it an interesting value-money proposition. Furthermore, it may arrive with a temperature sensor, which has only been available on the Galaxy Watch 5 (review) and Watch 6. But of course, all these are just speculation for now.
On the design front, though, the Galaxy Watch 4 should remain relatively unchanged from the original Galaxy Watch 4 series. However, it’s unknown what are the planned exterior changes for the Galaxy Tab S6 Lite (2024) consider the Galaxy Tab S6 Lite from 2022 featured the same exterior as the 2020 Galaxy Tab S6 Lite.
There is also no information on when these updated Galaxy Watch 4 and Galaxy Tab S6 Lite models are going to be made official and how much they will cost. It would make sense if Samsung would offer them at a more affordable price point than their older counterparts, knowing Samsung currently offers a wide selection of more capable devices.
