Rumor: Samsung will completely change the design of Galaxy smartwatches

According to insiders, Samsung employees are “enthusiastically” discussing the upcoming redesign of the Galaxy Watch smartwatch. It is expected that branded wearable devices will change noticeably, becoming similar to their predecessors – the Gear series models.

According to the source , Samsung plans to equip its new products with a rectangular display instead of a round one. These were the company’s first wearable devices, but starting with the release of the Gear S2, it began to prefer a round form factor.

It is unknown what the redesign might be related to, especially considering that Wear OS interface elements are optimized for a round display. The authors of the 9To5Google portal believe that the reason is competition with the Apple Watch, which is only available in rectangular cases.

Leaks about the future Galaxy Watch7 do not report a change in the shape of the display, so there is a possibility that the innovation will not be introduced soon. Samsung itself has not officially commented on the rumor.
