Samsung is reportedly working on Samsung Galaxy Gear 2 and Galaxy Band for its Galaxy lineup of Smartphones. According to the sources, Samsung is working to unveil the two devices at Mobile World Congress (MWC). The MWC is scheduled in Barcelona from 24-27 February. Earlier it was expected that Samsung would refresh its Smartphone and Tab lineup and launching new Note devices. Samsung is also expected to launch the most awaited Tizen running based Smartphone.
However now it seems that Samsung has more plans for the MWC held early next year. Galaxy Gear 2 will be the successor for its Galaxy Gear smart watch.
Lee Seung-woo, an analyst at IBK Securities was quoted saying
Samsung is currently working on the Galaxy Gear 2, and the product will be surely released early next year,
Another source working in Samsung said that the Galaxy Gear 2 and Galaxy Band are in works and “It’s a high possibility,” that Samsung will launch the upgraded Galaxy Gear at the MWC.
However, at this time, the specifications of neither the Galaxy Gear 2 nor Galaxy Band are available. Galaxy Gear 2 is an upgraded version of the Galaxy Gear watch, which Samsung introduced for its flagship devices Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy S4. Galaxy Gear 2, however is expected to feature a organic flexible display, for which Samsung had filled a patent even before the Galaxy Gear was launched. Most, at that time expected that the filled patent was for Galaxy Gear, however the Gear turned out to be completely different than what was expected.
The Galaxy Band is supposed to be a health meter, capable of measuring pulse and blood pressure. Samsung may have released a video featuring what is supposed to be Galaxy Band on Youtube. At this time, it is even unclear if Samsung Galaxy Gear 2 does exist at all or not. We will have to wait for the MWC to kick off in Barcelona, to have a fair idea.
