Unknown S-Circle device gets Bluetooth certification

An unannounced Samsung device has shown up at the Bluetooth certification page, showing only the name S-Circle and the product number EI-AN900A. The S-Circle's appearance was noted by Samsung Updates on Saturday. Observers speculate that the device may be a fitness-oriented offering from the South Korean tech giant.

Aside from the S-Circle moniker, the Bluetooth certification filing reveals nothing else about the device. If it is a part of the S-Band family, it would likely contain a number of sensors that would measure factors like heart rate for runners and active users. The S-Band possibility is bolstered by the model code EI-AN900A, as devices within that family typically include the prefix EI-.

An additional possibility is that the device is another portable media player from Samsung. It could also be another companion device to be paired with a smartphone. Samsung has not commented on the device to date.
