Dear Apple Watch: Samsung Gear S2 will come with SIM slot and phone calling functionality
We’ve seen teaser pictures of Samsung’s upcoming smartwatch, the Gear S2. The circle-faced timepiece, according to latest industry reports, will feature a nano SIM slot just like its predecessor, the Samsung Gear S.
What this means is that the Gear S2 can take calls and SMS on its own, something that the $350-priced Apple Watch cannot do even as the Samsung wearable is expected to be priced much lower at $250.
The upcoming Samsung Gear S2 will also feature Wi-Fi connectivity, running on Samsung’s home-brewed Tizen OS instead of Android, the platform on which Samsung launched its first smartwatch, the Samsung Galaxy Gear, in September 2013.
