The Galaxy Gear smartwatch will reportedly be unveiled alongside the new Galaxy Note 3 at Samsung’s pre-IFA 2013 September 4 media event, but there’s already unconfirmed online chatter regarding its specs.
Sam Mobile says that it has received an anonymous tip about the device’s hardware, which it can’t confirm with its insiders – usually the details published by the website come from one of its trusted “informants.” Even in those cases, we advise you to take everything with a chunk of salt, so we’re going to double down on that considering that even Sam Mobile labels it as a rumor.
According to the tipster, the Galaxy Gear will pack a 1.67-inch AMOLED display with 320 x 320 resolution, 1.5GHz Samsung Exynos 4212 dual-core CPU, ARM Mali-400 MP4 GPU, 1GB of RAM, 2-megapixel camera, Bluetooth and NFC support.
Further fueling Gear rumors earlier today, a Bloomberg report revealed that the smartwatch will indeed be introduced on September 4, in Berlin, Germany, but said that it won’t have a flexible display.
What’s currently known about Samsung’s smartwatch-related projects is that at least one patent describing a smartwatch has been filed by Samsung, and that there is a Galaxy Gear trademark for such a product. A model number for the handset is also available, but unconfirmed – SM-V700.
We’ll be back with more details about the Galaxy Gear once we have them. Meanwhile, let us know what you’d like to see in such a Samsung product.
