Samsung working on `smart watch` to take on Apple`s `iWatch`

London: Samsung is working on a smart watch called the `Galaxy Altius` to take on rival tech giant Apple, new leaked images have suggested.

The images, which were posted on a South Korean messageboard, purport to be screens from a forthcoming Samsung smart watch.

One image features the name Samsung Galaxy Altius , while others show a music player, clock and an email app, the Telegraph reports.

The pictures suggested that the Altius runs a modified version of the Google Android operating system.

The provenance of the images is unclear and, though some websites have identified details that suggest they are genuine, it`s entirely possible that they are mock-ups for an abandoned project or even fakes made by a fan, the paper said.

The images have emerged a week after it was reported that Apple is about to launch a smart watch.

The product, which has been referred to as the ` iWatch`, is apparently being worked on by a team of 100 engineers, suggesting that it is more than an experiment.
