Early signs of the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 or Galaxy Watch Active 4 spotted at Chinese certification agency
A few days ago, Ice Universe predicted that Samsung would release the Galaxy Watch 4 and Galaxy Watch Active 4 sometime in Q2 2021. Now, @_the_tech_guy has disclosed a 3C certification for what appears to be the SM-R880, the model number of an upcoming Samsung smartwatch.
Previously, GalaxyClub identified that Samsung had assigned SM-R86x and SM-R87x to future smartwatches, although these could be two sizes of the same device, as is the case with the Galaxy Watch 3 (SM-R84x & SM-R85x). While the 3C does not provide many details about the SM-R880, it states that its EB-BR880ABY has a 240 mAh capacity.
For context, Samsung equips the 41 mm Galaxy Watch 3 with a 247 mAh battery, so we imagine that the SM-R880 will be of a comparable size. By contrast, the 45 mm version has a 350 mAh battery, so it seems unlikely that the SM-R880 will be this large. Overall, this 3C certification reinforces that Samsung is close to releasing a new smartwatch. This year's models could be Samsung's first to run Wear OS too, if another Ice Universe rumour is correct.
