Today, Samsung released a Teaser poster shows a rounded design Smartwatch, the Korean company didn't release any smartwatches this year. Samsung's upcoming Smartwatch is codenamed "Orbis", and will be called "Samsung Gear A". It will come with a round screen, unlike all of its predecessors.
Samsung confirmed that the Gear A will pack a round display through an official press release, the PR is announcing that the software development kit (SDK) for its next smartwatch will be out before the wearable itself launches.
In this way Samsung is inviting developers to design Apps for its new Rounded Smartwatch. Developers who are interested to take part in this effort can sign up at a dedicated website, and then wait for Samsung to contact them with more details.
The giveaway is in the image attached to said press release, which features only round app examples. So at least this is clear now. What's left to happen is for Samsung to actually announce the Gear A, and there's currently no telling when that will occur.
