Samsung's first Android Wear smartwatch might be announced at Google I/O

Samsung's first Android Wear smartwatch might be announced at Google I/O
We already know that Google's I/O 2014 conference will be a place where, among other things, wearables are going to have an important role. What we didn’t know was that Samsung may announce its very first Android Wear-based smartwatch there.

According to CNET, the upcoming Samsung Android Wear watch will be "much like the Gear devices Samsung has released in the past year," and all Google I/O attendees might receive one. 

It’s said that Samsung is working on two different models: one using an Exynos chipset, and another one based on a Qualcomm solution. It’s not clear which of the two will be announced at Google I/O. In any case, the new smartwatch could be the Samsung SM-R382 that was spotted at the FCC last week.

Google I/O will be held in San Francisco between June 25 and June 26. Besides Samsung, LG and Motorola will most likely also showcase their Android Wear smartwatches during the conference: the LG G Watch and the Moto 360. LG’s G Watch will probably be the first to start shipping, with sales expected to begin in early July.

Note: the smartwatch pictured above is the Tizen-based Samsung Gear 2.
