Samsung could be readying its own connected wristwatch (smartwatch) according to a batch of screenshots that have appeared online.
The screenshots appeared on a Korean messageboard Ruliweb (via Slashgear) and refer to a device called the GALAXY Altius – a codename we’ve seen before referring to the Samsung Galaxy S4. Interestingly the UI doesn’t look particularly like an Android device – in fact the tiles look more like Windows Phone.
The screenshots give away several clues to the type of device. SKT refers to SKY Telecom, a South Korean Network, indicating the device uses data and the screenshots have a resolution of 500×500 pixels, which could indicate the screen resolution.Screenshots represent different screens – such as music player, clock and email.
