The South Korean firm Samsung’s Galaxy Watch 4 and Galaxy Watch 5 series are running on BigG’s WearOS for wearables. All the novelties introduced to WearOS benefit these WearOS-booted Galaxy Watches too. Recently, Google has brought some new watch face complications for the Google Keep application for WearOS. These new complications followed the redesign of the note feed. Let’s take a look at them. 

Informatively, back in December, Google gave a redesign to the provided of Google Keep app on WearOS devices, and now following it, some watch face complications have also been brought. These new complications have made their way with version 5.23.102.03 of Google Keep for Wear OS. These complications are for the “Add note” and “Add list” options of Google Keep which will use the same icon as the Google Keep tiles. 

Let us tell you, even previously as well; Google has given many modifications to this Google Keep application in smartphones, wearables, and larger screens. Earlier this month, a single note home screen widget was introduced for smartphones, and back in November, a dual-panel redesign was brought for Keep in larger screens such as tablets, foldable, and Chromebooks. We are expecting more for Google Keep in the future.

Galaxy Watch 7 Could Powered By Exynos W1000 chip

Published

on


Samsung’s next-generation Galaxy Watch 7 is in an actively developing phase and is expected to introduce a new naming system for Galaxy smartwatch processors. 

Initially, Samsung switched to WearOS with the Galaxy Watch 4, powered by the Exynos W920 chip. Since then, the giant has also changed the naming scheme for their smartwatch processors. The same chipset, ‘Exynos W920, carried over to the next Galaxy Watch 5 lineup. 

The current Galaxy Watch 6 is powered by an upgraded chipset named the Exynos W930, and it is expected that this will carry over to the next-generation Galaxy Watch 7 series as well. Recent reports suggest that an Exynos chip, likely to be named W1000, will power the Galaxy Watch 7. Although this naming scheme could be suitable, the key point is that it would better convince consumers that the new chip is a major upgrade as compared to the previous chip. 

Although the model number for this new iteration is yet to come into existence, and usually the simple word is just not a part of the Korean giant, it will be interesting to see what turn this report will take in the future.. 

On the other hand, previous leaks already revealed the forthcoming Galaxy Watch 7 could offer three variants, including standard, classic, and pro, with hints at monster battery life and more. It is also supposed to be launched at the Galaxy Unpacked event in early July 2024.

Île-de-France Mobilités & Samsung Expand Transport Tickets On Galaxy Watches

Published

Île-de-France Mobilités is in the phase of modernizing transport tickets and is stepping up its efforts to dematerialize them. 

This includes new ticket options, pricing, effortless ways to buy tickets online or directly by phone, and updating station equipment to make using these new options smoother. Île-de-France Mobilités dematerialized ticketing solutions are used more and more every month and are now the majority in use. 

The aim behind this is just the dematerialization of ticketing and the generalization of this use, which has less environmental impact as compared to magnetic tickets. 

Regarding this president of Île-de-France Mobilités and the Île-de-France Region, Valérie Pécresse stated, “The generalization of this service, in partnership with Samsung, is in line with our dematerialization policy initiated in 2016: making the lives of Ile-de-France users simpler, more practical, and more in tune with our times. We will continue to invest and increase our efforts in this direction.” 

Back in November 2023, a few testers were able, during a developing phase, to use their Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 lineup as well as newer models to validate their transport tickets. The feedback was positive, highlighting simplicity, fluidity, and the speed of using the service. 

Although, since 2019, the Korean giant has been a partner of Île-de-France Mobilités to provide solutions for dematerializing transport tickets to all Ile-de-France residents on their smartphones. Now users can use their Galaxy smartphone for public transport in Île-de-France; this includes validating tickets on a terminal and buying or even reloading them with Samsung Pay. 

The two players are going further with this new deployment, which will permit you to buy tickets from a smartphone and validate them just with a flick of the wrist with a connected watch, even in the scenario where it is turned off. This step appears as a move forward to the modernization of Ile-de-France ticketing in a simple way, especially for scenarios when you get late.
