Samsung Gear A to be a round-faced smartwatch

Smartwatches, Wearables

So much for stopping cranking out smartwatches at a relentless pace – it seems Samsung is currently working on a new watch – the “Gear A”, which will sport a round face, to compete with the likes of the Moto 360.


According to SamMobile, the Gear A, which is code name “Orbis”, will come in two variants: One a standard bluetooth device that will connect to your phone, and the other with built in 3G support so you can make calls from your wrist – no phone required.

Apparently both watches will have wifi built in too.

At the moment we don’t have any timescales on this, or any photos – but we’ll keep you posted.
