Samsung’s circular display smartwatch will feature wireless charging


It almost seems that the Moto 360 is the defacto standard for how a smartwatch should be designed, and with that said it should be of no surprise that Samsung are looking to bring the wireless charging to their next smartwatch.

Already rumoured to be a round display, Samsung are looking to drop the standard micro-USB connector in favour of wireless charging. The smartwatch, which is suspected to be codenamed Orbis, will run Tizen, Samsung’s own operating software.

So whilst Samsung’s next smartwatch may tick all the right boxes for design at least on paper, the catch is you’ll have to run Tizen, which might not necessarily be a bad thing…
