Samsung's upcoming smartwatch that's expected to launch as the Galaxy Sport could push the OEM's smartwatch design language to a whole new level, at least according to a render acquired by 91mobiles, said to be based on the actual product.
The render, which you can view above, comes courtesy of 91mobiles and a "reliable source". The entire black bezel can be rotated to control and navigate through various parts of Samsung's Tizen OS.
It shows a completely new design direction for Samsung, with a smooth circular design and brushed metallic casing.
Look, there are a number of ways to improve Samsung smartwatches.
Samsung's Galaxy S10 sounds like it's gonna be more of everything. The thin profile of the device seemingly gives it a much more of a premium look, with two buttons on the side that you'll likely need to use to interact with the software. From the render, it's hard to tell where that round dial is, unless that line is simply referring to the watch's circular screen.
The glass on top of the display seems to curve near the edge similar to 2.5D panels employed by smartphones, and this is unlike any other Samsung smartwatch released to date. This makes sense, because when you look back at the announcement of Samsung's first Bixby-powered smart speaker late previous year.
In terms of the smartwatch's bands, it would seem they could be made of a silicon plastic with a pass-through strap that hides excess length with is similar to what the Galaxy Watch has also.
This latest and greatest smartphone from the Korean technology firm looks set to be revealed at an Unpacked event in London on Wednesday, February 20 and it could bring some big changes to this popular brand.
