Samsung is already the king of the smartwatch market, as evidenced by a recent report, but there is no indication that they're resting on their laurels. The Korean company has already launched a number of smart watches this year, but they could have another device planned that would explore a different avenue.
According to The Wall Street Journal, Samsung is working on a smartwatch that would not be reliant on a tethered smartphone, unlike their current offerings. The watch would supposedly feature its own SIM and data capabilities, allowing it to directly make and receive phone calls. In addition, the device would pack Bluetooth, GPS and a heart-rate monitor as well as the ability to take photos, send emails and run various apps.
The publication also mentions that Samsung is already in talks with carriers in the US, Europe and South Korea to help fulfill their plans, with a launch expected in either June or July of this year. It could also be powered by Tizen OS just like the Gear 2 and Gear Neo, adding further value to the homegrown operating system.
