Android Central reported Thursday that the company might be looking to rival Apple in the so-called wearable segment. Furthermore, the report claims that the Samsung has had a secret smartwatch code-named "Orbis" in the works over the past few months.
Apparently, the next-generation Samsung Gear watch will have a round face, according to Samsung's media materials, relating to the release of a new SDK.
The SDK for the Samsung Gear Ecosystem encourages users to "get ready for the next gear," notes Trusted Reviews.
The rumors began earlier this year when Sam Mobile reported on sightings of a mysterious Samsung-made watch a rotary bezel ring on the top of the next-generation Gear.

Then, just a few days ago, an alleged anonymous report had confirmed that Samsung could be working on a new age smartwatch with a round display.
So far, Samsung has neither confirmed nor denied the reports. If these rumors turn out to be true, hopefully the next-generation Gear smartwatch could arrive at the IFA tech show in September this year.
