It looks like the launch of the Galaxy Watch Active 4 is not much far away. Last week, the watch series cleared the FIMKO and 3C Certification. The Watch Active 4 has now received the FCC Certification with two new model numbers SM-R875 and SM-R870.


According to the FCC listing, the Galaxy Watch Active 4 will carry two different model numbers: SM-R875 and SM-R870. As shown in the images, the first model, SM-R875, will support the NFC and LTE. Additionally, it is confirmed that the new Watch will come with Wi-Fi (802.11a/b/g/n) and Bluetooth. So, this could mostly be the LTE variant of Galaxy Watch Active 4.

At the same time, the second model, SM-R870, could only come with support for Wi-Fi (802.11a/b/g/n) and Bluetooth. Therefore, it indirectly confirms that it could be the Wi-Fi model of the Galaxy Watch Active 4.

Apart from the two model numbers, a new Galaxy Watch has also cleared the FCC certification carrying the model number SM-R890. Unfortunately, apart from the Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity options, there’s nothing more available. The Watch is listed along with the EB-BR890ABY battery, EP-OR825 wireless charger, and EP-TA200 travel adapter. As it is the first leak of the SM-R890 model number, it is unsure about the device.

We don’t have any information about the launch date of the Galaxy Watch 4 Series, but Jon Prosser’s report has affirmed that the Galaxy Watch Series will go on sale from August 11.

There are also a few rumors saying Samsung will introduce the new Galaxy Watch Series at the MWC event, which is going to be held on June 28. However, we can expect more information to anticipate soon as the launch is getting closer.
