Samsung Galaxy Gear 2 to arrive in January 2014

Samsung barely released the Galaxy Gear smartwatch, but sources claim its successor is already under development and may arrive as soon as January 2014.

Samsung announced the Galaxy Gear smartwatch on September 4 at IFA 2013 in Berlin during the Samsung Unpacked Episode 2 event. The device will become available in the United States in early October, but recent leaks show that its follower is already under development.

According to various Korean Media sources quoted by Techkiddy, Samsung decided to begin work on the Galaxy Gear 2 due to the mixed feedback received by the Galaxy Gear so far.

Although Samsung's smartwatch will be available to the consumers in over 140 countries next week, some reviews of the device mentioned low battery life, limited compatibility and pricing to be the main issues of the device.

Techkiddy's sources claim that Samsung released the Galaxy Gear to test the market's response, so the Galaxy Gear 2 will be a much better product without the problems of the current model and a lot of additional features.

The Galaxy Gear is only compatible with the Note 3 at this time, but Samsung officials say this is going to improve in the future. On the other hand, the Galaxy Gear 2 will provide increased autonomy and additional features, such as GPS and compatibility with all Android smartphones. While this is probably a speculation and nothing more, the arrival of the device in early 2014 may prove to be true.

According to the sources, the Galaxy Gear 2 is expected to arrive at CES 2014 in January or one month later at MWC 2014.

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.
