Renders show what the Metal Gold Edition of the Samsung Gear A (aka Orbis) could look like

The Samsung Gear A aka codename Orbis is well and truly in the prepping for a launch this year, and enthusiasts are already going head over heels about the upcoming smartwatch which is expected to be the best yet. Renders from designer xsplash just happened to land here at the SamMobile offices, and we think they’re pretty cool.

The renders are what xsplash calls the Metal Gold Edition of the Gear A, which may or may not see light of day, but certainly impress at the first look. The Orbis is expected to launch in the second half of this year, probably at the IFA.

What do you think of these renders?

Not half bad. This is a pretty good smartwatch design. I still wish OEMs would just deviate from the entire ancient “watch” idea for wrist wearables altogether though. Imagine a wrist wearable that doesn’t even look like a watch. A large, curved screen around your wrist. A very elongated one. Nobody would compare it to an actual watch for aesthetics. It would actually be a mini wrist computer, much like how smartphones are mini pocket computers.

Critics out would say that this kind of render seems to resemble the Apple Watch in terms of aesthetics. Getting tried of seeing the same Apple-like design coming out of them.

This doesn’t even remotely resemble the apple watch in any way or form.

Not sure anymore, fed up with Samsung ditching current products within half a year of launch.

Had Gear, the Neo then Gear 2, gave up on the S and stayed with the Gear 2.

No app or product support a very blinkered and short term focus.

Dare I say the bloody crap Apple watch will get updates and support for many years.

I think the problem with Samsung is that they produce way too many things. Unless a product really catches on and becomes a household name (Galaxy S, Galaxy Note, Galaxy Tab, Galaxy Tab S), Samsung will just move on and try the next thing. Their watches have sold okay I guess, but none of them have the “it” factor, the Orbis may change that. I think that is a gamble you take when buying Samsung products.

Wow. If the Orbis looks anything like this it may end up on my wrist.
