We’ve already posted about Samsung’s rumoured unveiling of the Galaxy S5 at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, and it seems that the tech giant is also planning on unveiling its latest version of the Gear.
The current Gear hasn’t exactly been doing well, and was critiqued for having an uninspiring battery life and clunky appearance, amongst other things. Samsung is thought to be improving the issues that the first iteration had for the current release.
The interesting part about the rumours is that the latest Gear might run on Tizen instead of Android, according to a claim made by USA Today. Tizen is a mobile operating system created by Samsung but which hasn’t been released to the public as yet. At this time, a Tizen-powered smartwatch cannot be confirmed.
Even so, it looks like Mobile World Congress is gearing up to be a big event for Samsung and we’ll be keeping our ears to the ground for any new developments.
