Samsung Galaxy Gear 2 and Galaxy Band Rumors
Once news began to spread of the Samsung Galaxy Gear’s mediocrity in most aspects looked at for excellence in smartwatches, people began to assume that there would have to be some sort of follow up product to prove that Samsung is capable of making decent wearable technology.
That follow up might not be far off as sources say that the Samsung Galaxy Gear 2 and Galaxy Band will be unveiled at next year’s Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona.
These reports are coming from The Korea Herald , the same paper to announce that LG would release its own smartwatch and smart band at the MWC.
Reports say that the Gear 2 will utilize a flexible OLED display, something not yet attempted by any other smartwatch on the market. The Galaxy Band will most likely be very similar to Nike’s health band, the Nike Fuelband.
These reports have not yet been confirmed by Samsung, but it is likely that both Samsung and LG will later confirm the launch of their own wearable tech products at the MWC. (2)
