Samsung is said to be devoting a lot of time to their next Smart watch, and that can only be a good thing right? The Smart watch wars are definitely upon us, but with so many manufacturers going for Android wear I feel glad that Samsung are keeping to Tizen, as this is a great solution to implement any customisation that they want and leverage the strengths of Tizen, unlike poor old Android wear that sees no changes in the User Interface or experience from one manufacturers offering to another.
The word on the street (from Sammobile and another source), is that the next Samsung smart watch is going to be a premium looking round-face Orbis that will be launched as the Gear A. There will be two variants, one with Bluetooth connectivity, and one with 3G data and calling support (both variants should support Wi-Fi). There will be two main model numbers SM-R720 and SM-R730. It looks like the SM-R730 model is the 3G enabled variant and will be retailing through carriers.
There is no confirmation about release date, but with the iWatch (hehe) releasing soon we don't know if Samsung want a head to head war with the Apple boys or not.
