Recent reports have revealed Samsung’s rumoured plans of launching a round smartwatch ala-Motorola Moto 360. Android Wear will not be on board this new wearable, which suggests it will run Samsung’s Tizen. According to a new report, the South Korean tech giant’s rumoured round smartwatch will support wireless charging.


The new report comes from SamMobile, an accurate source of information on yet to be announced devices made by Samsung. According to the site’s source, Samsung’s round smartwatch is code named “Orbis,” and will support wireless charging. If this information holds water, we believe wearable buyers will be highly interested in the device, since charging it will not involve pesky wires.
