Samsung confirms existence of Galaxy Tab 4 by touting Gear Fit compatibility
Samsung was heavily rumoured to launch the Galaxy Tab 4 line at the Mobile World Congress last week, but the manufacturer decided to focus instead on wearables. The decision seemed to have paid off, as the Gear Fit was awarded the “Best Mobile Device” at the MWC. Samsung stated during the announcement of the Gear Fit that the device would be compatible with over 20 different Galaxy devices. While that indicates that the Gear Fit will work with most Samsung devices currently available, one of the devices listed in the image mention the Galaxy Tab 4. The image mentions that the Gear Fit can sync to the Galaxy Tab (10.1/8.0/7.0). In doing so, not only has Samsung unwittingly confirmed the existence of the Galaxy Tab 4, but has also confirmed that the tablets would come in three variants.
The Gear Fit itself is said to launch sometime by the end of March along with the Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo. The fact that the image states that the Gear Fit works with the Galaxy Tab 4 indicates that Samsung might launch the tablet series before the fitness tracker hits stores. The South Korean manufacturer has already launched a bevy of tablets this year, but is said to continue the blitz as it looks to become the number one tablet manufacturer in the world this year.
