Samsung musing over round smartwatch ahead of MWC 2015

Now that CES 2015 is mostly behind us (well, the good stuff is) the rumours ahead of MWC 2015 are starting to heat up a little. One particularly juicy rumour is that Samsung plans to launch a round smartwatch at MWC next month, allowing to enter a fairly limited club at the moment inhabited by the LG G Watch R and Moto 360.

What little we know comes of reports of a device dubbed the SM-R720, codenamed Orbis within the company. According to these reports, the watch runs Samsung’s Tizen operating system, and not Android Wear. While that’s a little disappointing, we know that some of Samsung’s previous smartwatches running Tizen haven’t been too shabby at all, so this could still be quite a promising device.

Samsung has filed patents earlier this year which included a round smartwatch design, giving this rumour some credibility.

The LG G Watch R and Moto 360 are both fairly well regarded devices, so the SM-R720 enters a competitive space, but Samsung has been known to pull some fairly good results out of a hat, so it might be lining up for a strong entry.

We’re as excited as anyone to see what Samsung manages with this device, so fingers crossed it won’t be too long until MWC 2015 and a reveal!
