Already having actually launched more watches and wearables compared to any type of business has to, Samsung is stated to be readied to bring not one, but two additional to market faster instead compared to later on and is anticipated to debut at least among them at the upcoming Google I/O event.

Taking area on June 25th– 26th, Google I/O is the Android mold’s big developer seminar. Just like Apple’s WWDC yet on a somewhat much smaller scale, I/O also has its own opening keynote at which new items and support services are revealed. It’s throughout this keynote that Samsung is likely to display its brand-new smartwatch.

The reason for a news at I/O as opposed to a Samsung-only occasion is the brand-new watch’s use of Android Wear, the custom-make mobile os that Google has assembled in the hope that it will certainly quit OEMs from shoehorning Android-proper onto wearables. It will understandably connect Android mobile phones, nonetheless.

Baseding on sources talking to CNet, Samsung has not one, however two brand-new smartwatches up – – or should that be ‘‘ on’ – – its sleeve. Both are seemingly the same bar the usage of various chips, with one packaging Samsung-made silicon with the various other making use of components made by Qualcomm. It’s unclear which will be announced at Google I/O, however we expect that the two chipsets will be for different areas prefer to than both being on offer side-by-side. We’ll learn following week.

Wearable modern technology is currently merely hanging around to take off, and lots of think that an entry from Apple will legitimize a market that is virtually awaiting a hero item to catch the focus of everyone. Google’s Android Use campaign will no uncertainty go some method to helping that procedure along however, especially since OEM’s have a bespoke model of Android to work with. Exactly what the similarity Samsung will lay over the top of that os though, stays to be seen.

Fingers crossed it’s not a flavor of TouchWiz.

We will be covering Google I/O substantially, so stay tuned for even more updates.
