Since long, there has been a rumors about Samsung currently working on circular display smartwatch. The smart wearable is likely to be called as Gear A or Samsung Orbis and is expected to be unveiled in September along with the Galaxy Note 5.
Last month, Samsung has confirmed this news of making a circular display smartwatch by teasing a new Gear SDK. Samsung has now made the SDK available to be downloaded and hence we can get the glimpse of the Tizen UI which is the expected OS for the watch.
