Samsung Gear S4 to have a bigger battery than previous models
by Milen Yanachkov / Jun 13, 2018, 9:51 AM
We recently learned that the Gear S4 may be released in August, alongside the Galaxy Note 9, and may be available in two sizes at launch, much like the Apple Watch, but a new tidbit of information, courtesy of serial leakster Ice Universe (@UniverseIce), sheds some light on the battery that will allegedly be powering the upcoming smartwatch.
According to a recent post by Ice Universe on Chinese blogging site Weibo, the Gear S4 (or Galaxy Watch, or whatever it ends up being called) will feature a 470mAh battery, which, if true, is a healthy bump up from the batteries found in the Gear S3 and the Gear Sport (which had 380mAh and 300mAh capacities, respectively).
Considering how well the Gear S3 and Gear Sport handled their batteries, each managing to last an average of two days on a single charge, the Gear S4 could be a beast when it comes to battery life. Of course, it may also feature more bells and whistles than its predecessors, which will surely drain the battery quicker, but we'll have to wait and see. And it seems like there's not a lot of waiting left, as the latest reports from Korea pin the Gear S4 for a launch in early August.

My Gear S3 Frontier already lasts me easily 3 days, this will be ground breaking. They'll definitely outsell other "smart" watches that last like 6 hours and don't have a competent virtual assistant.

Other "smart" watch that only last 6 hours without always-on screen and 4G connection?

The general public will overlook this and get an Apple Watch because it’s cute.

Most Samsung fans won’t get the S4, just like they didn’t want the original Gear, Gear S2, or Gear S3, because the Gear watches simply aren’t compelling enough. Don’t blame the Apple Watch for the Gear being undesirable, doing so makes you look like a desperate idiot.

I would love to get a gear a and a note 9 product. However, I switched back to an iPhone and Apple watch because of apple music. If apple allowed the gear s to have access to apple music just like the apple watch I would be done with apple. I enjoy leaving my phone in the car when I run and go to the gym.
