Due to the success that Samsung is having with its Galaxy Gear wearable, people all over the world put their trust in the Korean smartphone manufacturer for a compatibility of the smartwatch with other handsets that are non-Samsung, like LG or Sony. So far, it was Samsung`s intention of keeping things inside the box, but a possibility of launching a Galaxy Gear sequel which would be compatible with other devices than Samsung has been launched a long time ago. More than that, the Korean company has recently reported in an official statement that there would be a future Galaxy Gear that could be used with other non-Samsung devices.

To better confirm the news, when asked about the idea of having a compatible wearable with Sony or LG, Luke Mansfield, the Head of the European Product team at Samsung, told in an interview with Android Planet that he doesn’t know the global strategy that Samsung is putting next on their tables. “I don’t know what the roadmap is for that, but I’m confident that that would be the case,” he states.

Mansfield didn’t literally state that Samsung would launch a future compatible Galaxy Gear with other devices or tablets, but he instead implied the idea of such a thing coming sooner than we might expect.

Other than that, with the company introducing the Tizen software on the smartwatch, this could lead to an easy follow-up process for non-Samsung devices to be compatible with the Galaxy Gear.

But for the moment, the Korean manufacturer would limit the number of compatibility with the devices that use Tizen or Android, starting perhaps with Sony or LG. We will keep you posted with on the fresh news. Meanwhile, don’t forget to tell us what you think about a future compatible Galaxy Gear with other devices than Samsung. Might be looking at Sony, LG or HTC to handle the device? Cheers!
