Leaked screenshots of the companys upcoming Galaxy Altius smartwatch suggest Samsung may in fact be announcing the device soon.
With Apple working fast to develop the iWatch, Samsung can’t be far behind, can it? Leaked screenshots of the company’s upcoming Galaxy Altius smartwatch suggest Samsung may in fact be announcing the device soon. Surprisingly, Samsung has not acknowledged that such a project is underway. The Altius name cropped up a few days ago and it was rumoured to be the working title for the company’s next-generation Galaxy S flagship, which could be announced on March 15. However, it looks like Altius is the name of an OS Samsung has developed for the smartwatch, going by screenshots leaked on a Korean forum, Ruliweb. The UI looks very much like Windows 8 or Windows Phone 8’s live tiles and it looks like there is a SIM slot in the watch for cellular connectivity thanks to the indicator showing the mobile network of South Korean carrier SKT. One screenshot reveals that the OS is going to be named Altius too.Click here for full story
