With Samsung switching all their current smartwatches over to Tizen you’d think they would have bowed out of the Android Wear welcome wagon by now. That hasn’t been the case, though, as they are still billed as one of the handful of manufacturers bringing an Android Wear smartwatch this year.
They might have just given us a clue as to what they’ll name it, too — Samsung Galaxy Wear. Not surprising at all, and the “Galaxy” bit at least solidifies its status as an Android-based device (which we assume will be the lone product that isn’t converted over to Tizen).
We still don’t know anything else about Samsung’s offering as they have yet to unveil any designs, nor have we had any juicy leaks to sink our teeth into. But with Google set to take out a good chunk of time for Android Wear at Google IO next month we suspect it won’t be long before Samsung takes the wraps off for the world to see.
