The Samsung Galaxy Gear runs Android, and we had thought that the Samsung Galaxy Gear 2 would also run Android, although according to a recent report by USA Today, Samsung have chosen their new open source Tizen OS for the Galaxy Gear 2.
Samsung is trying to push Tizen as a new mobile OS and the company recently announced that it had 15 new partners for Tizen, we are expecting to see some Tizen powered devices next week.
The Samsung Galaxy Gear 2 is said to come with a new design over the first version, the device may come with some sort of flexible curved display.
We should have more details on the new Samsung Galaxy Gear 2 at Mobile World Congress next week, it will be interesting to see if the device ends up running Android or Tizen.
