At the end of last month, a well-known filtering agent said he had been able to see some Samsung workers wearing smart watches that ranas an operating system, instead of Tizen, the software with which the Korean company works on all its wearables. This supposed thatto surrender at Google’s feet.
Although many already imagined a future Gear S4 running with the cleanest software version for smart watches, we have bad news. Today, a couple of weeks later, the same filter has sung the mea culpa and corrected its previous tweet . The watches worn by those workers did not belong to the Korean company and, therefore, they could not run Tizen.

Update: turns out these were actually just one-offs made by Google and seeded to some Samsung workers (i.e. keep moving, nothing to see here).

As he has assured through Twitter, the wrist devices worn by the operators were signed by Google and they had been distributed by the company itself, hence they used Wear OS. It is not a terminal in the manufacturing phase, nor one used by Samsung to perform and test how Wear OS is spent. It is simply a Google clock with Google software. Of course, Evan himself says that it is an “exceptional” model (one-offs), so surely it is not a product for commercial purposes .
Therefore, it seems that there’s still a time until we can see a Samsung device running Android as conceived by the company of the great G . Maybe one day the Korean company will surrender, abandon Samsung Experience and put aside all its specific software. Although we are sure that day is still far away.
