Samsung has been preparing a replacement for its Gear smartwatch for a few months, and this time, the connected watch should adopt a rounded design.
Samsung's next Gear smartwatch will be round. It is a press release retrieved in advance by Android Central which shares the information.
Announcing the upcoming release of the SDK of the next Samsung Gear watch, the press release is accompanied by visuals offering a display in the form of discs.
It must be said that despite an anticipated foray into the smartwatches market, Samsung found that its main competitors opting for a round display sold more easily than its own watches.
And the trend quickly spread with the Android Wear platform, with smart watches more widely opting for a traditional style.
With the release of the Apple Watch, Samsung would also need to stand out from Apple by offering a watch with a clearly different design in order to avoid comparisons.
