The most recent wearable from Samsung is not a smartwatch, but instead it is the Gear Fit 2 that is more like a fitness tracker and was launched earlier this month. Now for those who are more interested in a smartwatch, it seems that some details have emerged about Samsung’s Gear S2 successor.
According to the folks at SamMobile, they have heard from their sources some information regarding the next Samsung wearable, which according to them will be codenamed “Solis”. This when translated means sun, which interestingly enough is in line with Samsung’s theme as the Gear S2 was codenamed “Orbis”, or orbit.
SamMobile’s sources have told them that there will be several variants with the model numbers SM-R760, SM-R765, SM-R770, SM-R765V, and SM-R765S. It is unclear as to what the differences in models are, but it has been suggested that the last two models could be carrier-specific.
The smartwatch is also said to run on Tizen, which shouldn’t be surprising as that has been Samsung’s M.O. for their past few wearables already. Unfortunately there is no word on when these devices will be launched, but if the rumors about the next-gen Galaxy Note launching on the 2nd of August, perhaps that’s when Samsung will make their smartwatch announcement as well.
