The Samsung Galaxy Gear has not been a major success for Samsung, and it seems like the company understands that pretty well. The Korean manufacturer is apparently working on a successor already with a slightly different design compared to the current iteration of the Samsung smartwatch. The report generates from Korean source ET News which goes on to state that the second generation Galaxy Gear will be launching with the Galaxy S5 flagship next year. There’s no confirmation of this yet, so take it with a pinch of salt for now.
The sources claim that the Galaxy Gear 2 will be sleeker by 15-20% compared to the current Galaxy Gear, which is a refreshing change. However, its design was never the issue for customers. If Samsung manages to bring compatibility with all Android devices, there’s no doubt that the smartwatch would be an instant hit. Rethinking the pricing structure wouldn’t be a bad idea either. We expect more information on the second gen Galaxy Gear to come our way as we head into 2014.
