What are the Samsung Gear Blink and Samsung Rounded?
Samsung wants to trademark two new names which may hint at future products that the company is planning to release. The names are Samsung Gear Blink and Samsung Rounded, and both are in the process of being trademarked in South Korea.

“Gear Blink” suggests that this could be an alternative name of the rumored Samsung Gear Glass (since the Glass name is already used by Google for its smart eyewear). As for "Samsung Rounded", this might be the successor to the Galaxy Round (seen on the left), which was launched last year as Samsung’s first smartphone to feature a curved display. However, the Galaxy branding is missing from this name, so it may not refer to a smartphone after all.

Sure enough, we can't know if Samsung will indeed use these names (not every trademarked moniker ends up being paired with a real product). But we’ll see what happens, and let you know when new details about this arrive.

So does that mean Samsung will continue to use tizen on its wearables instead of android wear???? (there is no galaxy with the gear blink)

G-Flex makes sense. A phone that curves in landscape mode and one that is flexible.
