And its finally there ! Samsung’s long-rumoured, round-screen Gear SmartWatch will soon see the light of the day, with the Korean giant teasing the same via a teaser poster. In a Press Release first discovered by folks at Android Central, Samsung has also announced the SDK for this next Gear smartwatch.
JK Shin, CEO and Head of IT & Mobile Communications Division at Samsung Electronics said,
Samsung has actively adapted its approach to wearable device development as the leader of the rapidly developing category. Through meaningful and progressive innovation, Samsung welcomes to developers and industry leaders to join this open collaboration effort to enrich and create unique user experiences for a new smart mobile life.
Apart from teasing a weather themed, round screen watch-face, Samsung’s teaser image also displays rounded smartwatch apps from a handful of major partners — CNN, Yelp, Baidu, FidMe and Apposter.

But now the $illion dollar question, When can we expect a launch ? Well, the press Release issued by Samsung doesn’t specifically talk about a release date. However, since Google has already announced a major Android Wear update, and Apple Watch has also started shipping, Samsung is definitely working towards a quick launch, probably in coming couple of months.
