Samsung Circular Smartwatch

Samsung wants to do things right this time with his rumored “Orbis” and is perfected design

The situation in the coming months on the market smartwatch promises, because with the Apple Watch just around the corner, we’re about to really find out whether this 2015 will be “the year of the smartwatch” as some predicted or so otherwise we will have to keep waiting. Many players have already shown their-Apple, LG, Pebble and Huawei- letters, although we miss especially one in particular: where are you, Samsung?

The South Korean company last year flooded the market with their smartwatch, even to launch 6 different models within 6 months. With their latest device, the Gear S, itseems that the company has not seen signs of life, although we know that they are working on something completely new.

For some months we have been informing you of Orbis, the name would receive the next smartwatch Samsung and shall circulate the popular format. In addition, leveraging its new format, the device may incorporate a completely new way to interact with it: rotating bezel . As if the Digital Crown Apple Watch were, rotation in one direction or another of the bezel Orbis allow us to move through the system.

When the Orbis hit the market? Samsung sources have confirmed they are not yet ready to release it , so we can probably see from September , perhaps in the CTIA 2015 held in Las Vegas. Beyond perfecting the design of the watch, an aspect that particularly worry Samsung is the battery life, so they would be testing ways to improve this flank to attack the Apple Watch and its 18 hours of battery life .

Orbis could incorporate a processor Exynos 7420 of 14 nanometer for high energy efficiency

Some of its technical characteristics, the next Samsung smartwatch could incorporate the brand processor house Exynos 7420 of 14 nanometer , which wefind in the last flagship submitted by the company and serve to achieve high energy efficiency and achieve lengthen and the battery. Really much power in a smart watch is required?

As we read in BGR, is also expected to have Tizen operating system , it seems that Samsung wants to chart its own path away from Android Wear, and implement the wireless charging system.

What do you think what we know so far? Will the Orbis be the first smartwatch Samsung appeal?
