Samsung Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo announced, shockingly running Tizen OS
Samsung has officially made the announcement of the Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch’s successor, the Samsung Gear 2 (notice the ommiting of Galaxy because of the absense of Android), and it’s not running Android — it’s running no other Sammy’s own Tizen OS!
Samsung Gear 2 (very hard not to call it Samsung Galaxy Gear 2 at first try) has a 1.63-inch Super AMOLED touchscreen display with a resolution of 320 x 320 pixels. The wearable is powered by a 1GHz dual-core processor with 1GB of RAM.
The smartwatch now has a 300mAh capacity battery, a downgrade from a 315mAh on the Galaxy Gear; It features a 2MP camera and now weighs only 55 grams. Samsung Gear 2 comes in black, orange, and gold brown color flavors and has an IP67-certified dust and water resistance.
Samsung Gear 2 Neo is a sign that Samsung has lately fallen in love with the name ‘Neo’. As much as we can tell,there won’t be much difference between the Gear 2 Neo and Gear 2. We expect to see the Gear 2 Neo with a lower pricing though.
Both the Samsung Gear 2 and Samsung Gear 2 Neo will be released in April but Samsung hasn’t said anything on the pricing of the two devices.
