Samsung has launched its new smartwatches, called the Watch 4 and Watch 4 Classic back in August. These devices are the first to ship with the new Wear OS platform, co-developed by Google and Samsung. Now, the Watch 4 series has arrived in Nepal too. Here, we will be discussing the specs, features, availability, official price of the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 and Watch 4 Classic in Nepal.
Samsung Galaxy Watch 4, Watch 4 Classic Overview:
This time around, Samsung is changing the naming convention of their Galaxy Watch lineup. The sporty model, previously known as Watch Active, is now the vanilla Galaxy Watch. On the other hand, the one with the iconic rotating bezel is called Watch Classic.
Moving on, both Galaxy Watch 4 and Watch 4 Classic come in two display sizes and resolutions: a 1.2-inch panel with 396 x 396 pixels and a 1.4-inch screen with 450 x 450 pixels. Despite being of the same size, the Galaxy Watch 4 Classic is bigger because of its rotating bezel.
Additionally, the standard Watch 4 is available in either 40 or 44mm cases while the Classic edition arrives in either 42 or 46mm cases.
Similarly, Galaxy Watch 4 Classic features a stainless steel body, while the regular model boasts an aluminum case.
Moreover, the Watch 4 series comes with Super AMOLED panels with Gorilla Glass DX+ protection on Watch 4 and Gorilla Glass DX on the Classic. Both of them are IP68 and 5 ATM certified against dust/water damage, on top of the MIL-STD-810G grade durability.
Inside, these smartwatches are powered by the new Exynos W920 SoC. It’s a 5nm chipset clocked at a dual-core CPU clocked at 1.18GHz. It replaces the Exynos 9110 that Samsung has been using in its smartwatches since 2018. The new chip has been paired with 1.5GB of RAM and 16GB of storage. It’s an upgrade from 1GB RAM and 8GB storage on previous models.
Samsung One UI Watch
As for the software, Samsung has chosen “Wear“-based One UI Watch over its own Tizen OS. The new software comes with a new look, Google Play integration, and promises better synchronization with Galaxy smartphones.
It also brings improved battery life, faster loading apps, and smoother animations. But, the practical usage will show how capable and improved the new Wear OS is.
