The Samsung community Beta Operation Manager acknowledged the delay, stating, “We encountered unforeseen challenges in coordinating with Google’s Wear OS 4.0, which resulted in the unavoidable delay of the beta’s start schedule that was originally planned for May. We sincerely apologize to our customers who have patiently awaited the beta’s opening in May. Rest assured, we are working diligently to ensure a more stable software and prepare for the beta launch as soon as possible.”
