One of the features of the Samsung Gear S2 smartwatch is its rotating bezel that allows users to interact and control some functions of the watch. It sounds like Samsung is quite attached to the feature and believes it is useful because according to the latest rumors, the rotary bezel is here to stay.
A report from SamMobile has “confirmed” that the next Gear S smartwatch from Samsung, presumably the Gear S3, will be keeping its rotary bezel. While we suppose this doesn’t really reveal too much about the phone, it should be noted that this also means that the Gear S3 will be maintaining its round design.
So far many smartwatch makers have opted to keep the round design of the smartwatch, so we guess it isn’t surprising that Samsung would want to maintain its form factor. That being said, apart from the rotary bezel, not much else is known about the Gear S3 for now. We have heard rumors that Samsung could partner with jewelry designer Grisogono, but we reckon if that’s true, it’ll probably be a limited edition variant rather than it being part of the main lineup.
The report from SamMobile has also indicated that the watch will be revealed at IFA 2016 which takes place from the 2nd to the 7th of September, so check back with us then for the details if there are any to be had.
