Samsung may launch a round smartwatch to take on Motorola and LG
It looks like LG isn’t the only company that’s getting ready to release a round-faced smartwatch to take on Motorola’s Moto 360. According to Sam Mobile, Samsung is also working on a smartwatch that sports a circular display, though there aren’t too many details about it for now.

Since Samsung is currently offering smartwatches that run Tizen and Android Wear, the alleged round smartwatch could be based on either of the two platforms. However, if the device is intended to be a Moto 360 competitor, it will most likely run Android Wear. But that, of course, remains to be seen.

Not long ago, we showed you a few Samsung patents that described round smartwatches (see here and here) - so it’s clear that Samsung’s been pondering this idea for some time.

While LG already revealed that its round smartwatch (called G Watch R), would be announced at IFA 2014 in early September, Samsung has yet to confirm the existence of its rounded wearable device. Sam Mobile assumes that this won’t be announced at IFA, anyway, but a few months after. Still, it’s said that Samsung does plan to unveil a new smartwatch in September: the SIM-enabled Gear Solo, which should accompany the Galaxy Note 4. Whatever happens, we'll be here to let you know!
