Samsung is Making Round Faced Smartwatches too

 
We all know about smartphones what is going on and what is not. Lets take smartwatches now, the Moto 360 has captured the imaginations of many people looking at the nascent smartwatch product category, mainly by straying from the traditional square face design that’s been the mainstay of manufacturers like Sony, Pebble and now Samsung and LG with their Android Wear, but Samsung may be working on changing that according to designs registered with the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).
German site, MobileGeeks found the filings and the associated designs embedded within, which show that Samsung is still very much interested in continuing to incorporate a camera into their smartwatches, which will be used as the recognition point for a new gesture based system. Also surfacing in the documents are plans for a charging port in the clasp, which may go some-way to dispersing fears from consumers over issues with the charging arrangements in the Gear Live.
Whether these designs will be for the Samsung Gear line of smartwatches, or for a future Android Wear release, isn’t clear and at this stage the designs exist only on paper, but there’s some good ideas there.
