Samsung is definitely going to release updated variants of its products in 2014 and those interested in wearable technology are anxiously to see just what the company will introduce with its next generation smartwatch, which we’ll call Galaxy Gear 2. Only recently Samsung pushed out a major firmware update for Galaxy Gear to improve its notifications feature. The smartwatch was launched in September this year alongside the Galaxy Note 3, and if local media reports coming in from Korea are correct, the Galaxy Gear 2 might partner up with the Galaxy S5 which according to another recent rumor is due to be released in March 2014.
There have been reports of Galaxy Gear not selling well, critics of the product can definitely find faults in it. Some say that the smartwatch is too thick, and Samsung just might have something to appease them. Rumor has it that the Galaxy Gear 2 is going to be 15-20 percent thinner than the existing smartwatch, which would quite frankly be a welcome step. It hasn’t been said as yet what additional improvements we can expect from Galaxy Gear 2, so we’ll just have to wait and see if there are any further leaks about the smartwatch. Samsung claims that it has sold over 800,000 units of the Galaxy Gear, perhaps it can sell even more if the smartwatch is much thinner, lighter and has even more features.
