There are rumors that Samsung is looking to launch another ‘redesigned’ Galaxy Gear 2. The first attempt to release a wearable device, aka. the Galaxy Gear, was not as successful as Samsung thought, having encountered numerous issues with their first design.
There were flaws such as poor battery life, not-so user interface, and a bunch of other features were not working properly, leaving many users wonder of Samsung is a good choice for a wearable device. But the South Korean giant is not about to give up on the wearable tech just yet, having set to bring another smartwatch along with the Galaxy S5 handset and the Note.
According to the recent rumors, Samsung Galaxy S5 will be released this year with a different and improved Galaxy Gear 2. While the original duo of the popular Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and not-so-popular Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch did not go that well on the consumer market, Samsung is hoping that this one might just do what its predecessor failed.
Tech Radar reportedly even started on looking into how the wearable gadget might look like. They came up with a OLED curved screen, draped in steel, and neat design. But will it be a game changer for Samsung, or will it just turn out to be another failure as before? Given the strong competition announced on the wearable devices market, another failure could knock Samsung off the wearable market for good.
