Everyone knows Samsung is working on a Galaxy S5. We don’t need rumors and leaks to tell us that it will happen eventually. One thing that we aren’t too sure about, though, is the Galaxy Gear. When it launched, it was panned with mediocre reviews and it was definitely lacking a few killer features, although Samsung has updated it to try to bring a little more functionality for users. Samsung has defended the Galaxy Gear and they’re very positive about the device, even if it didn’t sell millions and millions of devices, and it looks like they’re already planning on a Galaxy Gear 2.0.
According to rumors, Samsung wants to launch the new Galaxy Gear alongside the Galaxy S5 next year. Obviously the newer Gear will have a handful of newer features, but one area Samsung really wants to address is the thickness of the watch. I can imagine battery life will probably be something else they’ll try to improve to really convince mainstream buyers to want one. Since we’ve heard a few different things about when the Galaxy S5 will be released, the new Gear launch date is up in the air as well, but I wouldn’t be surprised to see Samsung launch the devices together like they did with the Gear and Note 3.
What do you think Samsung will change in the newer Gear? Let us know in the comments.
