Samsung widely rolling out December 2023 update for the Galaxy Watch 4 Series


Samsung started rolling out new updates for its Galaxy watches early this month. Initially, it served the update to the Galaxy Watch 6 series watches, then gradually expanded the update to older watches, including the Galaxy Watch 5 and Galaxy Watch 4 smartwatches. However, initially it introduced the update to US and Korean-based watches, but now it has started rolling out the update worldwide.

The new Galaxy Watch 4 update is available in almost every region
