We’ve previously covered a report that says that Samsung is going to unveil the new Galaxy Note 3 at the September 4th event at IFA Berlin. At the same event, the Korean electronics giant will be launching the company’s first ever smartwatch named as the Galaxy Gear. This new wearable gadget will be given the model number as SM-V700.
But now SamMobile, a blog that covers leaks and rumors on Samsung mobiles, says that they’ve been tipped by an anonymous person who gave them technical specs of the Galaxy Gear smartwatch. What’s exciting about this rumor is that finally we’re now hearing the first ever news about what will lie under the hood of the Galaxy Gear smartwatch.
Samsung Galaxy Gear tech specs
Specs for Samsung smartwatch include a Samsung Exynos 4212 dual core 1.5GHz processor, ARM Mali-400 MP4 GPU and 1GB RAM. Well, who would have thought that one day we’ll wear a watch that would come with a dual-core processor and 1GB RAM. During older times even our computers were not that powerful, but hey, we’re talking about technology here!
On the display front, the watch would come with a 320×320 (3cm×3cm – 1.67-inches) AMOLED screen. There would be a 2-megapixel camera, and the smartwatch would also be equipped with Bluetooth (we’re not surprised here) and NFC. The Pebble smartwatch too uses Bluetooth to communicate with mobile devices like Android and iPhone.
SamMobile says that we should take this information with a pinch of salt, and not surprisingly, because every rumor or report before the official launch cannot be trusted with blind eyes.
We’ll have to wait for September 4th to get our eyes on the Galaxy Gear. If the smartwatch is successful then many more companies with follow Samsung’s lead, and we’ll likely see more smartwatches. Apple, too is reportedly said to have dedicated a team for its iWatch, and many other tech giants are eyeing on the wearable tech.
