The Samsung device with model number SM-R210 surfaced in an import listing back in 2016, and now it surfaces on Bluetooth SIG, not long after obtaining its WiFi certification. This device is expected to launch as Next Gear 360 and to become Samsung's second action camera.

Back in early November 2016, a mysterious "Sample Camera Set" device with the model number SM-R210 surfaced on Indian import tracker Zauba. Earlier this year, the same gadget prototype received its WiFi certificate, its WiFi Alliance database entry also revealing that the SM-R210 runs Tizen OS. Now, the time has come for it to hit Bluetooth SIG.

At some point, the SM-R210 was expected to be a version for the masses of Samsung's Otto robot, but now it looks like this device is a direct successor of the Galaxy Gear 360 action camera. While nothing has been confirmed by Samsung yet, the Bluetooth SIG listing reveals the "Next Gear 360" name, leaving little room for a misunderstanding.

However, Samsung recently mentioned a Gear 360 Pro action camera that did not arrive yet, so now we should wait for the Next Gear 360. Since it got both the WiFi and Bluetooth certifications, it is only a matter of time now until it finally gets unveiled. It would not be a surprise to see this action camera launch next to the Galaxy S8 family at the end of this month, so stay tuned.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
