Galaxy Gear 2 Smart Watch Will Be Way Better Than The Original

If you didn’t get your hands on the original Samsung Galaxy Gear smart watch, don’t be sad: you might soon be able to get your hands on a newer, better version.

The original Galaxy Gear suffered from various issues that prevented it from being a hit: poor battery life, it only works with a few Samsung devices, and, perhaps most importantly, it has an overall bad design.

And that’s what Samsung hopes to change with its design of the Galaxy Gear 2.

According to a source speaking with ZDNet Korea, the Galaxy Gear 2 will have a flexible screen. According to the source, Samsung will also swap out “all the parts that looked dull or boring.”

That’s not much to go off off, but hopefully that means a complete overhaul.

We won’t have to wait long. The Galaxy Gear 2 is said to be released in March or April, around the same time as the release of the Galaxy S5 phone.
