Samsung will launch its next-generation smartwatches, Galaxy Watch 4 and Galaxy Watch Active 4, in the second quarter of the year, says leakster Ice Universe.
The leakster did not disclose anything else about the smartwatches. According to reports, Samsung's next-gen smartwatches will come with a blood sugar monitoring feature. The company will reportedly use the Raman spectroscopy method, which has been co-developed with MIT. The feature is likely to come in handy to people suffering from diabetes.
