The smartwatches have made their place among the gadgets in the technology industry and the tech giants are betting on them. With Apple Watch setting the standard high for the wearable device, Android smartwatches are also getting smarter. Almost every tech giant has introduced their respective wearable device offering some of the exceptional features. In 2014, Sony launched SmartWatch 3 that was pretty good compared to the other watches available in the same category. However, Google has released the Android Wear 2, the latest Android smartwatch platform but Sony SmartWatch 3 is still stuck with the Android Wear 1. Initially, we thought the company will upgrade the watch with the latest platform, but Sony has announced that the SmartWatch will not get Android 2.0. According to Sony the hardware support of the watch 3 is good enough for Android wear 2. 

Maybe with this, the company wanted to hint us about the SmartWatch 4, however, there is no official information about the next generation watch yet. There some rumors and leaks available on the Sony’s upcoming watch that you should be knowing.

Sony SmartWatch 4 Rumours and Leaks

As we don't have much information on the upcoming watch, so we did some digging and found these rumors.

Android Wear 2.0

As Google has already made available the Android Wear 2.0 for the Android watches we believe the Sony Smartwatch will be running on the upgraded platform. The company announcement for SmartWatch 3 not getting the platform update makes it clear that the upcoming watch will have Android wear 2.0. Sony has said that the hardware support of SmartWatch 3 isn't compatible with the latest platform that means we will definitely see some major updates in Smartwatch 4.

Android Pay Compatibility

Where Sony will keep the some of the specifications of SmartWatch 3 attached to the new model it might add some new features. The Android Pay is among the most demanded feature from the watch users. According to the leak, Sony SmartWatch 4 will have the Android Pay compatibility that will make the things easier for the users. 

Battery and Hardware upgrade

Sony added 4200mAh battery to the latest model that was a good move for the company to leave behind many competitors. However, we expect the Smart 4 to have a little bigger battery than the previous model. The current model owns a 512MB RAM and 4GB storage that we expect to get a further enhancement, as well as the processor, also needs an upgrade. Sony may replace the current processor with Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear in SmartWatch 4.

What Do We expect?

More Balanced Design

The wearables now own a substantial portion of tech users and considered it an essential gadget. The users mostly used the wearables for sports activities and their day to day task including the work. This requires the design of watch to be something that supports looks for both office and gym. However, Sony SmartWatch 3 have sporty look, the rubber straps, and the pretty tough dark metal. Comparing to the rivals like Apple Watch 2, Sony needs to upgrade the design with little bit premium looks. We expect the Sony’s upcoming watch to comprise metals straps and a shining frame for a fresh look.

Round Dial?

Sony has kept its SmartWatch square which is also similar to the Apple Watch. But this time we expect the company to try something different and make a round shaped watch. However, the chances are very low for the Sony to move away from square design with SmartWatch 4. This is because the square-shaped watches are quite different and expect Apple Watch almost every wearable is made round by the companies. 

Wireless Charging 

As there is time for SmartWatch 4 to come out of the rumors and prove its existence we expect more advanced features. This includes the wireless charging, which will be a good advancement for the wearable device from Sony. In addition to this, with wireless charging, Sony will be able to compete with high-end watches in the market.

Sony SmartWatch 4 Price And Release Date

It has been a long time since Sony has launched the Sony Smartwatch 3 in 2014, the series seriously needs an upgrade. The leaks and rumors suggested that there could be some announcement at MWC 2018 but that didn't happen. Now, we believe that if there is any work going on SmartWatch 4, it will be launched after Android 3.0 release by Google. Moreover, if Sony is planning to launch the watch this year, so according to us, the end of the year will be most probable time for the launch. According to our resources and based on the price of SmartWatch 3 we expect Sony Watch price to be somewhere around $294.
