Standalone smartwatch among Samsung's secrets

Tech Industry
[MUSIC]. It's time to speculate on the seven secrets of Samsung. I'm Bridget Carey and this is your CNet update. [MUSIC]. In the world of technology reporting, much news is made from rumors about products that don't yet exist. Thanks to the ever helpful anonymous source. Well in the past few days, many Samsung secrets have been spilling out, seven secrets to be exact. Let's start with the new smartwatch. The Wall Street Journal's reporting that Samsung has another smartwach up it's sleeve, even though it just released three brand new smartwatches in April. This new version will not require you to pair it with a phone, it's a standalone device that will have it's own SIM card and it could be unveiled in just a few months. Samsung is also reportedly working on its own 3D gaming space goggles. It would be similar to the Oculus Rift, that's a virtual reality headset made by a company that Facebook recently acquired for $2 billion. Engadget reports that this thing would strap on your head, and you would connect it to a phone or a tablet to play a game. And that could arrive before Sony's version of its virtual reality headset, that's called Project Morpheus. Now, this may not be the only head tech that Samsung's working on. Mystery product number three is a Google Glass type head piece. The Guardian spotted a Samsung trademark application in Korea for something called Gear Blink. And it says it's for wearable computer accessories and software that records health conditions. Last October, Samsung filed a design patent for eye wear that connects to a smartphone. And that same month, it was awarded a patent for a headset called Sports Glasses. You add all that up, and we may see something new to wear on our face. It may even use this gadget to help us type on a virtual keyboard. There's another patent for a device that projects a keyboard on your hands to type. But I have a feeling it'll be a while before we get an answer to that mystery. There have been teases to more normal products, including a new tablet. Samsung invited press to Tab Into Color at an event on June 12th. It seems to be hinting at a new version of the Galaxy Tab Tablet, and one thing Samsung loves to do is make many versions of its popular Galaxy S smartphone. There are reports and photos of one spin off called the Galaxy S5 Prime. It could have really have fast download speeds, but it may just be sold in Korea. A spinoff that will likely go on sale in more places, is something called the Galaxy S5 Active. It's the S5's sporty sister and proof of its existence comes from videos uploaded by TK Tech News. That's your tech news update. You can find more details at cnet.com. From our studios in New York, I'm Bridget Carey. [MUSIC]
