It seems that everyone is jumping on the smart watches band wagon these days. We reported a few days earlier that Apple has put together a team to create the iWatch. Samsung, it seem s, doesn’t want to be far behind in smartwatch race. Leaked pictures from a Korean message board which were spotted by Slash Gear, suggest Samsung might have a few aces of their own.
The watch is being called the Galaxy Altius, which would put the smartwatch in Samsung’s Galaxy category. Although there isn’t a lot of information present about the specs of the watch, it is fairly simple to ascertain a few things from the leaked picture. The device seems to have a data plan associated with it, has internal memory, an OS by the name of AltiusOS Beta2 and a touch screen. The screenshots also display an email connection of sorts. The pictures are all sized at 500 x 500 pixels, which could be pointing towards a 500 x 500 pixel resolution.
Samsung might be planning on unveiling the smartwatch design along with the Galaxy S IV in the middle of March. Would you be willing to buy a smartwatch that doubles as your mobile phone? For now we will have to wait and see which company dishes out the first smartwatch.
