The Galaxy Watch was officialized in August this year alongside the Galaxy Note 9, bringing the series of Samsung smartwatches to the Galaxy family book. This made Gear Sport the latest Gear brand smartwatch, and possibly the Samsung team is already working on its successor.

According to the note we receive courtesy of SamMobile – one of the most respected and reliable sources in the Samsung universe – the South Korean company is developing a new watch with the model number SM-R500 that for now meets calls by the codename ” Press”.

The development of the Samsung Galaxy Pulse smartwatch began this month, with the original software compiled under version R500XXE0ARL5. The source still has no information on what will be the official name of the new watch, but there are clues about a possible Galaxy Sport, However, Gear Sport came with the model number SM-R600, so we still do not know if the SM-R500 will be a fitting evolution.

Samsung may have retreated the model number simply because the brand has been redesigned in its smartwatches, but this is not a certainty. In terms of specs, it is said that the Galaxy Sport has 4GB of internal storage and is still powered by Tizen, following the tradition of Samsung. Being a successor to Gear Sport – aimed at the fitness segment – it is unlikely that there is a variant with 4G connectivity. Samsung should only offer the watch in different sizes on the market. Gear Sport was launched with a one-size-fits-all (1.2-inch) size, which significantly limited its sales.

Galaxy Sport will also work with the Bixby smart assistant, with support for Bixby Reminder. Thus, the notifications you receive on your mobile via Bixby will also be displayed on this watch.

A number of software updates should bring new features to Galaxy Watch later, making the most of Samsung’s platform for everyday use. The source claims that Samsung should take advantage of the launch of the Galaxy S10 family to introduce Galaxy Watch to the world, noting that such information is just leaked that have no official ties to the brand.
