Samsung Gear A smartwatch tipped to arrive in at least three variants

Samsung’s round-screened Gear A smartwatch may skip the company’s big Unpacked event this week, but it’s still due to arrive at some point in the near future – and right now, IFA is sounding like our best bet for a launch announcement. Those rumors from late last week also mentioned the possibility of multiple Gear A variants, but left us wondering as to just what sort of differences we might be facing: WiFi/Bluetooth versus cellular connectivity, or possibly something tied to the wearable’s design? We still don’t have a lot of hard answers, but a new rumor attempts to shed a little more light on those Gear A variants, identifying at least three such models.

Supposedly, Samsung’s been developing the Gear A as its models SM-R720, SM-R730, and SM-R732. Internal codenames assigned to the wearables refer to them as the Orbis S1, Orbis S2, and Orbis Classic, respectively.

Unfortunately, that’s where this new intel stops, and while identifies these distinct models, it doesn’t do much to explain what’s so different about them. We might be looking at different size options, or maybe something as simple as the smartwatch being constructed from different materials. Maybe most importantly, the presence of three models sure would suggest something that goes beyond mere connectivity options.
