The next Samsung Gear smartwatch could be the long-rumoured circular smartwatch if this teaser image is anything to go by.
Samsung’s teaser image shows off a rounded weather-themed watch face. It also lists apps from a handful of major partners — CNN, Yelp, Baidu, FidMe and Apposter. The interesting point about this is that all of the smartwatch app logos are rounded.
Samsung is currently inviting app developers to sign up to get their hands on the developer preview SDK. If Samsung is moving from the traditional rectangular face to a rounded face, it would make sense that Samsung is putting the SDK in developers’ hands ahead of launch.
Unfortunately, Samsung’s press release doesn’t indicate when the new rounded Gear smartwatch will arrive. With the Apple Watch hitting stores shortly and new Android Wear software on the horizon, we’re guessing that we won’t be waiting too long.
