Samsung has been in both the smartwatch and smartphones industries for a while with the company manufacturing quality devices that have played a major role into people’s lives. Though they have made these smartwatches, they haven’t yet come up with a round style as Apple has done. In the past years, we have been able to see at least six of their wearables but all of them have come with a square face. Reports say that there is much being done so that they can have a smartwatch in a round shape just as apple has done and this is being projected to perform so well in the smartwatch industry.

Some of the watches which already have the round face include Moto 360 from Motorola and LG G Watch R from LG Company. As improvements continue to be made by these companies, customers have been looking for classy smartwatches which also have that traditional look and this has motivated these manufacturers to work a little harder and see that they have the devices ready for customers to select the best fit.

Reliable news from SamMobile indicates that this new watch will be referred to as Orbis featuring a power button on its side which will have a crown-shape. This will provide a nice look to the watch and definitely add to the many features it will be having. It is projected that there will be a rotating bezel on the round shape which will enable users to have an added experience while navigating through the various apps. One will be able to zoom or scroll through the apps instead of the alternative way of touch which is used with the square shapes.  This shows you that there will be a similarity with Apple’s watch where just having a twisting on its crown will let users manage the apps list, zoom the maps and also be able to scroll in order to have a look on the messages and many other features.
