According to Sammobile, which reports Samsung rumors, has claimed that this smartwatch will support wireless charging out of the box. This concept was adopted by Motorola for its Moto 360 smartwatch.

Also Samsung will be providing an SDK for developers so they can build more features around the ring. On the power button, Orbis offers functions like waking up the screen, launching S Voice (through a double press), and sending an emergency message. Also it is possible the crown will have few other functions, but most of the advanced stuff will be handled by that bezel ring.
