Samsung today unveiled its latest smartwatch, the Samsung Gear S.
The device runs on Samsung’s Tizen operating system, as opposed to the Android Wear OS of this year’s Gear Live. It has 3G connectivity, in addition to Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, which, according to Samsung, allows users to make and receive calls from the device or have them forwarded from smartphones. This makes it one of the few wearables to have such connectivity as a standalone device.
A dual-core 1 GHz processor and 512 MB of RAM power the Gear S, and 4 GB of storage space is also on board. The display is of the 2-inch curved Super AMOLED variety, and has a resolution of 360 x 480. The whole thing runs on a 300 mAh battery.
Samsung says that the Gear S will roll out in October, with exact pricing details to be made available at that time.
