Samsungs round smartwatch possibly detailed in a patent

Samsung logoWhile companies such as LG and Motorola are trotting out smartwatches with round faces (and interfaces), Samsung has yet to adopt that particular design, although if a patent from last year is any indication, we might have gotten a glimpse into how Samsungs round smartwatch might work out.

According to the patent, it describes a smartwatch with a rotating bezel ring that allows it to act as a navigational tool, such as scrolling through apps, lists, and more without having to actually touch the screen of the watch itself. Given how small smartwatch displays tend to be, it does make sense that you wouldnt want to obscure half the information with a finger.

The patent also talks about a crown-shaped power button as well as detailing some of the watchs features, like the ability to recognize images and objects, as well as act as a barcode register for products that can be purchased using Samsung Pay. Sounds like interesting features although we should note that this is just a patent and theres no way of telling if Samsung plans on making it a reality.

What we do know is that Samsung is working on a new watch, as confirmed by Samsungs executive VP of mobile market Young-hee Lee, who during an interview at MWC was quoted as saying, Weve been introducing more devices than anybody else. Its time for us to pause. We want a more perfect product. Perhaps we might catch a glimpse at IFA later this year, but is a round Samsung smartwatch a direction you think the company should be heading in?
