Samsung allegedly launching an Android Wear smartwatch at Google I/O

Samsung is apparently set to launch an Android Wear smartwatch this upcoming week at Google I/O. CNET is reporting that the upcoming wearable is one of several new devices to run Android Wear. LG and Motorola are expected to show off new watches as well.

Samsung is taking its experience with Galaxy Gear to make an Android Wear smartwatch. It just a few weeks ago that we learned Samsung had switched Galaxy Gear from Android to Tizen.

Not much is known at the moment on what Samsung will actually bring to the table. We do know taht Samsung is alleged to be working on two models: one using Samsung's own chips and the other using Qualcomm technology. As far as the design, pure speculation at this point. Will this be an existing smartwatch retrofitted with Android Wear? Or a new design? We'll find out this next week.

In the meantime, let us know if you'd rather have an Android smartwatch from LG, Motorola or Samsung.
