Ahead of the launch of Galaxy Watch Active 2, Samsung is facing flak for copying the design of the smartwatch from that of Apple’s.
A photo reported to have been leaked from Samsung appears to show the first glimpse of Galaxy Watch Active 2 which has an uncanny resemblance with Apple Watch 4.
Tech enthusiasts were quick to notice that the image showed two watch faces, one with a petal-like design and another with a tapestry of times, dates and other readings - much like the Apple Watch, The Sun reported on Wednesday.
The photo of the new gadget - part of Samsung’s fitness-focussed “Active” smartwatch range - was posted to Twitter by leaker Evan Blass. With over 400,000 followers, Evan maintains a private account on Twitter where he often shares leaks of devices ahead of their launches.
The launch of Samsung’s smartwatch is due on August 5.
Galaxy Watch Active 2 is expected to come with 4GB of memory, AMOLED display and fitness features in Apple-inspired rose-gold and black colour schemes.
