Right from the day one when Google announced an optimized android for wearables, everyone knew that Samsung would be one of the manufacturer that would come up with the android wear smartwatch. However, things took a different turn and we saw Galaxy Gear being launched on top of tizen OS. It seems that we have finally got some news about Samsung preparing to launch smartwatch powered by android wear in this Google I/O. Other OEM partners such as motorola and LG have already talked about their plans to release such smartwatches. In fact recently, Motorola released bunch of dial renders to finalize the moto 360 design.
According to the reports from CNET, Samsung is set to launch two variants of the android wear smartwatch during this Google I/O. One of these smartwatch is expected to run on its own processor while the other one would perhaps run on the Qualcomm based processor.
Additionally, Samsung recently filed for a trademark of the name Galaxy Wear. The FCC documents suggest that a slightly smaller smartwatch has been passed through which would perhaps have the Bluetooth and WiFi connectivity. The size of this smartwatch could be something like 37.9mm x 58.8mm which is little bit lesser than the Galaxy Gear 2.
While the above information could also go wrong, we are quite sure that Samsung may even launch the same device under the same name tag i.e., Galaxy Gear but on top of android.
Google I/O is just around the corner and thankfully we would see that device within a week.
