Rumor: Samsung Galaxy Gear sequel to have curved, flexible display

updated 07:57 am EST, Tue January 28, 2014

Revised Samsung smart watch will have updated design

The successor to the Samsung Galaxy Gear smart watch could be launched in March or April at a London event, according to a report. The smart watch is also said to have a curved or flexible OLED screen, instead of the original's 1.6-inch AMOLED version, along with a new updated design that could help Samsung gain more acceptance in the wearable devices market.

The suggested timing of the launch by ZDNet Korea's source could lead to a joint launch alongside the Galaxy S 5, that is if Samsung chooses not to launch the smartphone at Mobile World Congress next month. While little else is known about the Galaxy Gear 2 itself, its existence has been confirmed not only in an interview with Samsung's executive vice president of mobile business Lee Young, but also in a secondary pre-CES teaser image on the Samsung UK Twitter feed.

The original Galaxy Gear was not well received by consumers, with leaked internal documents from Best Buy suggesting a return rate for devices as high as 30 percent. A later report in November from Samsung claimed sales of more than 800,000 units, though it was thought this figure relates to overall shipments rather than devices in customer hands.
