Samsung inclined to avoid Tizen OS, next range of Galaxy Watch to run on WearOS

Samsung traditionally uses Tizen OS for its smartwatches. Lately, it is been rumored that the new Samsung smartwatch about to release in 2021 will get Google WearOS. 

The popular and trusted tipster on Samsung releases, Ice Universe has tweeted that the new “Samsung’s new watch will use Android to replace Tizen”.

GalaxyClub, another popular Samsung news source has also given out the information about two new watches under the model numbers SM-R86x and SM-R87x. These two models are expected to be in two different sizes with more or less the same functionalities.

Samsung does not follow a constant release cycle for its smartwatch range. The first one was released in 2018 followed by one in late 2019. Then in 2020, the company was about to release the Galaxy watch 3 but was delayed.
