Samsung’s seventh smartwatch will have a round screen design.
Samsung is planning its 7th generation of Gear solutions, allowing members of the global developer community to get early access to the Software Development Kit (SDK).
This will be the first time third party developers will gain access to the company’s wearable SDK before the official product announcement, the enterprise said.
Developers can join the scheme by signing up to Samsung Developer’s website and will later receive in their email box the development resources enabling them to build apps for the next Gear.
JK Shin, CEO and Head of IT & Mobile Communications Division at Samsung Electronics said: "Samsung has actively adapted its approach to wearable device development as the leader of the rapidly developing category.
"Through meaningful and progressive innovation, Samsung welcomes to developers and industry leaders to join this open collaboration effort to enrich and create unique user experiences for a new smart mobile life."
