Samsung is expected to "reimagine smartwatches" at its MWC event next week — the Galaxy Watch 4 and the Galaxy Watch 4 Active. Just days before the event, popular leaker @OnLeaks has joined hands with GizNext to share the first CAD-based renders of the Galaxy Watch Active 2 successor.

The leaked renders reveal a sleeker design than Samsung's current smartwatches, with redesigned buttons and new band fasteners. While it looks like the Galaxy Watch Active 4 will retain the circular dial of its predecessor, it may not include a physical rotating bezel.

According to @OnLeaks, the Galaxy Watch Active 2 successor will use an aluminum frame and come in 40mm and 44mm sizes. As for color options, the Galaxy Watch Active 4 will apparently be available in Black, Green, Gold, and Silver variants at launch. It is worth noting, however, that the shades depicted in the renders above may not be completely accurate.

Both the Galaxy Watch 4 and Galaxy Watch Active 4 are rumored to be powered by a 5nm Exyno chipset with significantly improved performance over the 10nm Exynos 9110 chipset that powers Samsung's best Android smartwatches. They are also expected to feature a flat 2D glass panel with slimmer bezels. On the software side of things, the Galaxy Watch 4 series will run Google's Wear OS instead of Tizen.

Samsung's Galaxy Watch Active 2 is packed with a ton of reliable health tracking features — including ECG and blood pressure monitoring. The smartwatch also impresses with a vibrant AMOLED display and up to 3 days of battery life.

Galaxy S21 FE could be pushed back to late 2021 as chip shortages continue to bite

Notebookcheck.net 24 June, 2021 - 05:03pm

Samsung’s Galaxy S20 FE (Fan Edition) launched last year to a lot of fanfare. It was styled after the Galaxy S20 flagship range and offered similar performance, but was priced more affordably thanks to some judicious product decisions. For example, the display, while still high-quality, is a lower resolution and the body is made from ‘glastic’ instead of aluminum and glass.  

As you would expect, bargain hunters keen to see another ‘flagship killer’ from Samsung have been eagerly awaiting the Galaxy S21 FE, which appears to adhere closely to the formula Samsung adopted with last year’s model. While the Galaxy S21 FE could still make an appearance at Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Unpacked event expected on August 3, SamMobile has learnt that we won’t see the product actually ship (or launch) until sometime in Q4.

As you might have suspected, the reason is being put down to the ongoing global chip shortage as had previously been suggested could happen. Samsung had already canned plans for the Galaxy Note 21 for the same reason and now it looks like that Galaxy S21 FE will be impacted by the issue. On the plus side, at least the Galaxy S21 FE is still expected to get a launch this year, but customers will have to hold out a little longer than they might have hoped. With a Snapdragon 888 on board at an affordable price-point from a leading brand, the wait could well be worth it.

Buy the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE from Amazon.
