New Smartthings hub with serie 700 chip?

Are there any plans for a new hub with the 700 series? I can’t find any info anywhere on a future v4 hub … I’m seriously thinking about migrating to Hubitat who already have a 700 series hub because there is nothing more that is developing or evolving with Smartthings.
the new web portal has been in alpha for over a year and there is still no hope that it will be released … nothing is changing at Smartthings …

Pretty much everything is changing at smartthings, including the app and the entire backend platform. Major, major, major changes which have been affecting most of the people in this forum, hence the hundreds of replies to the two recent official posts. (The topic titles are clickable links.)

From a hardware standpoint, changes in the last year have been firmware, but there have been some significant ones. on the Zigbee side, increasing the number of directly connected end devices from 32 to 64, support for Zigbee 3.0, and some groupcasting changes. On the Z wave side, enhanced support for the S2 security protocol. All of these are “behind-the-scenes“ changes, but still significant.

They have also rolled out official distribution and support for the V3 hub in about 17 new countries last I looked. That’s not a trivial effort, either.

As far as a V4 hub: nothing has been announced yet. I would definitely expect a 700 series model eventually, but for right now they probably have their hands full with the other changes they are working on.

Zigbee does not interest me, I only use zwave.

The new Smartthings app isn’t new, I’ve been using it for years. They only dropped the old version which was working fine to force the new version which contains bugs …

The v3 hub did not bring anything new vs the v2 except that there are no more backup batteries …

95% of its operation depends on the cloud…

Still no feature to update zwave firmware OTA …

The web portal has been in alpha for months and still no hope that will change …

I don’t see any significant improvement for zwave users! And the competition is rapidly improving their products.

I received my Hubitat Elevation C7 today. Bye bye Smartthings I start the transition.
There’s no more development here… Samsung don’t make any hub… they are now made by Aeotec and no anouncement of serie 700 chipset before 2 or 3 years if they are not bankrupt…
