Samsung’s Android Wear Watch And Tizen Smartphone To Come This Year

In an interview with Reuters, Samsung’s Senior VP for Product Strategy, Han Kil Yoon has confirmed that they will be releasing an Android Wear smartwatch and “high-end” Tizen based Smartphone this year. This is almost eerily similar to last year when those plans did not come through due to “poor market conditions”. Samsung have said that they will be concentrating their efforts mainly in “a few countries they can do well in”.

If this is to be believed we will be getting a high end Tizen phone by the end of june and the Android Wear watch by the end of the year. I for one will be excited to see what the combination of Android Wear and perhaps a curved display will bring!

The name Amazon may not be the first thing on your mind when you talk about a smartphone but if all things goes to plan with their first smartphone, it may just be a talking point for a  while to come. While the above image resembles the lovechild of a Lumia device and a BlackBerry Z device, it’s worth noting that it’s merely a case to house internals and is not the actual finished design.
