Samsung officially announces its Gear S2 smartwatch

After a Samsung executive teased it online, the South Korean giant officially introduces its newest smartwatch — the Gear S2.


Samsung Gear S2 specs:
1.2-inch circular Super AMOLED display @ 360 x 360 resolution, 302ppi
Round rotating bezel
1.0GHz dual-core processor
4GB internal storage
Bluetooth 4.1
NFC for payments
e-SIM for performing functions without a phone
Samsung Tizen OS
24-hour activity log (S Health, Nike+ Running)
Dust and water resistant
11.4mm thin
250mAh wireless charging battery


In addition to those specs, the Samsung Gear S2 also has a 24-hour activity log for users with an active lifestyle as well as a battery that lasts 2-3 days on a single charge, according to the company. There will be a 3G variant at the same time with a slightly bigger battery (300mAh), but basically has the same internals as the non-3G model.

No news on its availability and pricing so keep it locked here for more updates.

    If the previous generation of the Gear is to be any indication, it’s probably going to start somewhere around 14K PHP. That’s for the non-“Classic” variant. Way too pricey.
