Samsung teases the Gear S2 round smartwatch, will be unveiled next month in Berlin

We exclusively reported quite a long time ago that Samsung is developing a round smartwatch and even though the company dropped some hints in its software it never really showed us what the smartwatch would look like. Even though Samsung wasn’t expected to formally launch the smartwatch, commonly known by its codename Orbis, at its event today the company did show off the device and also revealed that it’s actually going to be called the Samsung Gear S2.

Samsung didn’t go into much detail about the features and specifications of the Gear S2 but we did get a look at the design placeholder, however it did mention one crucial bit of information, the Gear S2 is going to be formally unveiled at the IFA 2015 convention in Berlin next month. SamMobile will be present on the ground to cover the festivities and will have much more to report on about the Gear S2 from Berlin.

I haven’t worn a watch for the last twenty years or so but this one piques my interest.

More satisfying than Apple’s Watch huh?

Yeah especially since the whole design of the interface and belt is copied from apple. Just the shape is copied from moto etc. samsung was going with their curved screen design until jesus apple released their watches at which point samsung started hyperventilating to copy. Samsung started making smartwatches way before apple and yet they waited one year to be able to copy apple s ideas after apple released theirs. Unbelievable.

Well you are kind of wrong there…Orbis/Gear A? Gear S2 has been the works since the mid 2014, apple watch was not even out so Samsung had no idea what it was going to do or look like/ function.

You’re so fanboish it’s not even funny. Looks different, works different, handles different – copied xD Go be a stupid fanboy somewhere else.

The bezel doesn’t somehow look rotatable. I dont care, as long as it is, I’m gonna shut up and give my money to Sammy.

Actually, I’ve scrutinized the teaser by slowing it down to 0.25x, and the moment it shows the watch faces at the end, with the metal face of the watch, I could clearly see the bezel rotating. Yes. Time to shut up and work harder = more cash = Gear S2 😀

That Bezel control is so good thing to have…. a custom skin on the Gear S2 will make it a Ben 10 watch in real life! xD sadly the price will be high as…..!

Doesn’t look formal at all. I usually prefer wearing a smartwatch at work, however, this one would never suit the formal outfit. Also, I find it a little bit uglier compared to the available smartwatches in the market (including the Gear series).

I looked the conference for that mostly, and now,i can’t wait for the 3rd september.
Samsung seems already to have nailed it with a sleek look and simple design, not too square like in the 90’s or big rounded “g*yish”.
The round seems to be effective just by seeing that teaser to quickly access favorite apps.
And with no Android wear shovelware to manage it, it should be the best watch available for fall if rightly priced.
Come on Samsung, bring it on.
