Samsung Gear smartwatch upcoming model to have a telephony variant

The MWC event last month unveiled the Samsung’s Gear 2 line of smartwatches which would be running on the Tizen OS. The new smartwatches will provide all the necessary functions of calling, messaging and notification capabilities from a paired Galaxy smartphone. The pairing requirement however will not be a necessity with the next generation of these Gear 2 watches. They will feature their own SIM slots to allow for the calling feature without the need to get paired with a smartphone.

According to some Korean media outlets, there is apparently a partnership agreement happening between Samsung and Korean carrier SK Telecom and they will togother release a new standalone variant of the Samsung Gear 2. Quite a few sources from within the industry have claimed that what's more feasible is a telephony-capable smartwatch but this would be an important consideration since a new level of power will have to be taken into account if the phone bits are to be built into it. In the beginning, the device will focus on the Korean market but it is expected to reach the global markets afterwards. On the other hand, the current gen smartwatches will hit retail all over the world.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
