We previously heard that Samsung were working on the new Samsung Galaxy Gear 2, and now according to a recent report, the device will launch at the same time as the Samsung Galaxy S5.
Samsung recently announced that they have shipped 800,000 Galaxy Gear smartwatches, dispelling rumors that the handset was not very popular.
And now it would appear that Samsung is gearing up for their second generation smartwatch, which is expected to be thinner and lighter than the existing model.
The Samsung Galaxy Gear 2 smartwatch is said to be between 15 to 20 percent thinner than the existing model, it isn’t clear as yet on whether the device will use a similar design or a completely new design altogether.
If Samsung do intend to launch the Samsung Galaxy Gear 2 at the same time as the Samsung Galaxy S5, then we suspect that the handset will be announced some time in February of next year.
