Samsung is conquering newer market by venturing into chartered territory.
Earlier, the company built its Gear S2 smartwatch powered by Tizen and Android platforms. Now, the South Korean company is taking a huge step. Samsung Vice President Alanna Cotton announced at the CES that Gear S2 will now support rival Apple's iPhone.
However, no date has been fixed, but it is expected to be ready by the year end.
Cotton did not offer much detail about the plans, but it is likely that Samsung Gear S2 will shred some of its functionality on iOS platform when compared with Android-based devices.
Though some internal functions may be different from the Android version, the Gear S2’s round design and well-thought rotating bezel interface is enticing enough. Samsung Gear S2 will definitely let many people put off on buying the Apple Watch.
The company also said that newer versions of the Gear S2 Classic would be available in two variants - in rose gold and platinum.
