Since CES 2015 and its big launches are over, all eyes are now set on the next major event, MWC 2015 in March. We expect a lot of announcements to be made at the MWC and reportedly, Samsung might be working on unveiling a round-screen smartwatch at the Barcelona expo.
The round-screen Samsung smartwatch (SM-R720), which has the codename ‘Orbis’ will supposedly be the first round-screen smartwatch under Samsung’s Gear moniker. Reportedly, this smartwatch will run on Tizen and not Android Wear. It’ll be interesting to see how well Samsung implements the round-screen interface.
We recently came across some patent applications from Samsung, which showed a new ring based UI, which should work well with the aforementioned smartwatch. We’ll have to wait and watch to see if Samsung brings a worthy rival to the likes of the Apple Watch and the Moto 360 smartwatches.
