We’ve kept an eye on Samsung’s rumored “Project Orbis,” which is also being dubbed the Samsung Gear A by many as well. This is not only Samsung’s first round smartwatch, but also a device in which Samsung plans to bring some UI innovation, as we’ve heard that a rotating bezel will play a major role in how you’ll interact with the smartwatch. We’re ready for a possible launch of this product in IFA, but today we get a ton of details on what to expect.

Samsung has just launched its Gear SDK to developers, and it includes very comprehensive documentation on the specifications of its upcoming Gear smartwatch, sample apps, and a bevy of images of the device’s user interface. For starters we’re looking at a device with a full metal frame and a metal crown. It sports a 1.18-inch circular display with a resolution of 360 x 360 pixels, which amounts to 305 ppi. The built-in sensors include an accelerometer, gyroscope, heart-rate monitor, pressure sensor, magnetic sensor, and its connectivity options include Wi-Fi, GPS, and cellular radio.


The screenshots show us how the rotating screen will help you interact with the watch in things like navigating through lists of items, navigate between screens, change the volume levels, update certain UI elements, and even zoom in and out of images.


The leaks also show us just one new Gear product, so this might mark the end of Samsung’s squared or rectangular offerings going forward. We’ll keep you posted as we learn more about this product before IFA 2015.
