We have heard the rumors that Samsung could be gearing up to launch a standalone smartwatch this summer. By creating a standalone smartwatch, it means that wearers will not have to worry about smartphone compatibility, which is one of the disadvantages of Samsung’s smartwatch lineup at the moment. We’re sure many of you guys are curious as to what Samsung’s new smartwatch could look like, and thanks to a patent filing by Samsung, the image above is what we could expect.
There have been a number of rumors about Samsung‘s upcoming wearable device which is supposed to be able to take and make calls, and include a heart rate monitor and GPS. Recently a few of Samsung’s patent applications were released, showing what could be that device. The device looks quite similar to the Motorola Moto 360, and a number of the patents are related to the gestures that are used to control the device. While it is strange that the patents are leaked around the same time as rumors of a new Samsung wearable, the patents do describe a device that get connectivity through being paired with a smartphone or tablet. Because of this, either the recent rumors are wrong, or the device in the patents is unrelated to the wearable expected from Samsung this summer. Hit the break for more images!
