Samsung May Reveal Watch That Works as Phone

Large technology companies like Apple, Google and Samsung should get in a race to bring wearable devices to consumers this year
Samsung Electronics is developing a smart watch that can make or receive calls without being connected to a mobile phone, reported the Wall Street Journal on Friday (23).

Samsung, one of the largest manufacturers of smartphones in the world, is in discussions with Telecom operators of the United States, South Korea and Europe on a “watch-phone” that the company hopes to unveil between June and July, according to the Wall Street Journal, citing people familiar with the company’s plans according to loverists.
The current variety of smart watches, as Samsung’s own Galaxy Gear, must be connected to a telephone to receive and send messages and perform other basic tasks.
But the watch that works as a phone, which runs the operating system Citizen from Samsung, can take pictures and manage emails regardless and will come equipped with a heart monitor, according to the newspaper.
Samsung was unavailable for comment.
Large technology companies like Apple, Google and Samsung should get in a race to bring wearable devices, such as smart watches, to consumers this year.
The size of the demand for devices such as watches or smart goggles is not precise, but industry sources consider these devices as the next phase of an increasingly saturated market for mobile devices.
