The Samsung Gear S3 was launched in 2016 and for those who were expecting a successor, that didn’t exactly happen last year where Samsung instead launched the Gear Sport. However the good news is that 2018 could be the year of the Gear S4, at least according to a report from the folks at SamMobile.

According to the report, it seems that Samsung is working on the Gear S4 and that the model could come with more health features. The report claims that we could looking at improvements to health and fitness features, such as more in-depth sleep tracking. Other than that we’re not sure what else to expect save for the expected upgrades to its processor, maybe RAM, and also battery life.

Samsung’s Gear series has been somewhat well-received and despite what many had expected, Samsung shied away from going down the well-trodden path of adopting Google’s Wear OS platform (formerly known as Android Wear), instead choosing to use their own smartphone platform instead.

No word on when the Gear S4 will be announced, but if we had to venture a guess, perhaps it could be announced alongside the Galaxy Note 9, which if the rumors are to be believed could be launched as early as this coming July.
