Samsung Announces Gear 2 And Gear 2 Neo

Samsung Announces Gear 2 And Gear 2 Neo

Product image

Guess Samsung really couldn’t wait until Monday to share their excitement with the world. Therefore, the company decided to drop in two nice presents on Sunday itself. The Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo were both announced, officially, earlier today. Both smart watches are powered by Tizen and not Android OS. Samsung has left the hardware configuration largely unchanged – 1.63-inch 320 x 320 Super AMOLED display, 1 GHz dual-core processor (up from 800 MHz), 512 MB of RAM, 4 GB of internal storage and a tiny 300mAh battery (down from 315mAh). However, the Korean OEM has thrown in some new goodies into the box – health sensors (heart rate monitor), IP67 water and dust resistance certification, IR port for controlling various home appliances etc.

The common features between Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo (the word Galaxy is missing since there aren’t Android powered gadgets) end there. While the former has a 2 MP AF camera, capable of shooting 720p videos, the latter lacks a camera altogether. Also, Gear 2 weighs 68g, while the Gear 2 Neo, at 55g, is much lighter. The Gear 2 will be available in Charcoal Black, Golden Brown and Wild Orange, and the Gear 2 Neo will be available in Charcoal Black, Mocha Grey and Wild Orange from next month with support for “dozens” of Galaxy phones. No word on pricing as of yet.
