Samsung Tomorrow blog post hints at new wearable devices (Galaxy Gear 2?) for CES 2014
While we may have a vague idea on what Samsung is planning to announce next week at CES 2014, the company hasn’t confirmed anything yet. However, in a post made today on the official Samsung Tomorrow blog, the South Korean manufacturer seems to give us a hint on some of the products that it will unveil in Vegas.
The blog post discusses general things regarding the upcoming trade fair, but also has a paragraph titled Samsung at CES 2014. This reminds us that Samsung introduced its Galaxy Gear smartwatch three months ago, while also demonstrating a new “smart home” concept. “The wearable device market is on the rise and the concept of smart home has started to gain ground”, says Samsung, further noting that “[at CES 2014] we can expect some innovative products that we had imagined to use in the future.”
In consequence, Samsung could announce the rumored Galaxy Gear 2 and Galaxy Band (initially believed to be prepared for MWC 2014) at CES next week.
The first Galaxy Gear smartwatch - see our review of it here - isn’t as attractive as Samsung wanted it to be, still lacking a clear purpose (plus, its $300 price tag is not justified). So maybe the Gear 2 will straighten things out. We’ll see.

If I was samsung , I would make a flexible rappable smartwatch (flexible display with battery and soc in a little case) make it compatible with galaxy phones AND an other version compatible with iphones and ipads! patent it strong that apple would'nt dare make somthing similar !however if they did, sue the hell out of them! that is how apple would fall if I were samsung!

May be announcing Galaxy Band but no Galaxy Gear 2 since Galaxy Gear is always the most advanced Smartwatch on the market and no competition from other manufacturer for now.
Next Gear 2 will be announced when they will have to follow or beat the competition. Longer they will wait, the more technology they will be able to pour in their Smartwatch.

Maybe we will see Galaxy gear light....... They can't launch next version of Galaxy gear so soon, as it's only 3 months old..........
