Samsung was literally rumored to launch a round smartwatch at the event of MWC 2015 (Mobile World Congress). It has picked up the name of Samsung Gear A. The event has also divulged the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge, Samsung Galaxy S6, and a new Samsung Gear VR headset.
Release Date and Price
According to SamMobile, that had a buzz on the Orbis, Samsung Smartwatch was announced in March’2015 at MWC, in Barcelona. As per our knowledge Gear A has no appearance at MWC, but Apple Watch not behind in this aspect and it was officially unveiled on 9 March. We are having same ray of hope that the Orbis to launch this year.
Few sources has suggested that the Orbis, or Gear A, will arrive at CTIA (cellular telephone industries association) which will takes place between September’ 9 to September’11. These are the same dates and IFA 2015 is the event where Samsung generally announces latest mobile products with the Galaxy Note 5 likely to expect this year so we could also have the Gear A in launch.
Do you have penchant for the sound of the Samsung Gear A, then guys be ready to bear the high cost more than the Gear S, which costs around £329. However, this will not act as a smartphone to function properly so we are thinking that the Orbis would be more cheaper which create rivalry among competitors such as the Moto 360 and G Watch R which cost around £200.
Design and Specification
Gear A has the circular display and it almost look like a regular wristwatch. Samsung has ostensibly assured this by releasing an SDK for the new forthcoming Gear watch. Samsung has also revealed that they are collaborating with their global partners to have experience that is more amazing with Samsung Gear for the users. Samsung has decided more developer’s participation in this.
The site witness many interfacing with different application like CNN, Yelp, FidMe and Apposter. Gear A will use its own “Samsung Tizen” operating system rather than opt for Google’s Android Wear.
Just similar to Apple Watch, Samsung’s Orbis or Gear A will have a crown shaped power button but it will not offer the same features and functionality like Apple. Instead, SDK of gear A has assured that there is a rotating bezel ring around the edge which will be used by the user page navigation and device control. The screen can be potentially wake up by the crown, launch S Voice with a double tap, and send the messages as well.
Samsung Gear A will elude different feature in terms of display. So basically “Display” will be divided in two segments, like a pie chart to present the schedule of a day. Samsung Gear A has plenty of rumors on the specs including a built-in camera and sensors for identifying image, object and barcode. The awesome lies of the health related hardware like heart rate monitor and the Gear A is most probably to introduce us by being key for your car and a remote-control for your Television. Samsung will be using its own Exynos 14nm processor inside the Orbis and the feature of wireless charging is also likely to happen.
