After releasing the Gear S2, Samsung is preparing to launch their latest smartwatch, and if we believe the rumours, the upcoming wearable will run on TIzen OS and is codenamed as Solis. The Gear S2 was almost a perfect smartwatch, and the South Korean company took a long time to develop this beast of a gadget but the company is not done yet and is trying to add more features in their feather.
Solis means ‘Sun’ in Spanish, and if we take this name as a hint, we can probably conclude that the smartwatch will come with a circular display. We can firmly say this because the Gear S2 was codenamed ‘Orbis’ which means orbit in the Spanish language and you can check the shape of the smartwatch by yourselves.
Samsung chooses the form of Solis circular mainly because most of the smartwatch users do not like their gadget comes in a rectangular shape and looks like a mini computer strapped to their wrists. Moreover, a classic watch-like design and the rotating bezel for navigation goes hand in hand perfectly and gives a premium look as well as feeling.
Sam Mobile, the reputable website for Samsung gadgets confirmed that the model number of this upcoming Gear S2 successor will be SM-R760, SM-R765, SM-R770, SM-R765V, and SM-R765S (where the last two should be the carrier variants). The same folks also reported that Solis will run on Tizen OS and will come with a more updated user interface. So the Android lovers will be disappointed by this news.
Although any information about the specs of the upcoming Solis smartwatch is still unknown, we can surely say it will surpass its predecessor in many aspects. The Korean company may go for a larger display option as the 1.2-inch display of the Gear S2 feels a bit tiny when you have to use the touchscreen instead of the rotating bezel. Apart from that, Samsung may also incorporate a better batter battery with longer battery life and add some more cool features.
Samsung has not spilled the bin about the official name of this smartwatch, but we assume it will be named as Gear S3. The same goes for the official release date and price too. According to our close sources, Samsung may make an announcement about this latest smartwatch when they will unveil the all new Samsung Galaxy Note 7 on 2nd of August. Meanwhile, you stay tuned to our website more news on Samsung Solis and other technological news.
