Samsung follow-up smart watches to Galaxy Gear leak

updated 11:45 am EST, Sat February 22, 2014

New smart watches will apparently not use the Galaxy branding

Rumors of Samsung offering multiple models of its smart watch in the future may in fact be true, based on leaked images. A low-resolution image of two follow-up devices to the Galaxy Gear was posted online, followed by a second, higher-resolution version, though it turns out the smart watches may not actually be part of the Galaxy device range at all.

The images posted by the @evleaks Twitter account were initially suggested to show the Galaxy Gear 2 and Galaxy Gear 2 Neo. While one could be considered to be the upgraded version of the Galaxy Gear, the other seems to use cheaper materials, with the Neo branding usually associated with lower-budget devices also pointing to a potentially-lower feature set.



After the leaks were posted, the leaker advised they "misspoke" over the watch names, noting that they are not "Galaxy-branded." This could possibly mean they are not using Android as its operating system, instead opting for Tizen.

Samsung is holding a launch event on Monday evening after the first day of Mobile World Congress, with the Galaxy S5 expected to be the focused-upon device. It is possible Samsung could launch the watches alongside the flagship smartphone, though they could also make a separate appearance at the trade show itself.
