Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Gear smartwatch is sounding less and less astounding the more we seem to hear about it, but then again, it’s all just rumour until we see the final product. The latest rumour coming from the internet is that the Galaxy Gear will come in 2 variants: one with 6GB of storage and one with 8GB of storage. This seems pretty far-fetched given how close those two are; 4GB and 8GB seems a likely contender.
The other rumour is that the device will have 10 hours of battery, which definitely isn’t good enough for smartwatch that should be usable all day. The source of the rumours, AmongTech, seemingly adds to the mania by suggesting the Galaxy Gear has the following specs:
- 320×320 2.5-inch (181 PPI) OLED Display
- 1GB RAM
- 1.5GHz Dual-Core CPU (seemingly insane, really)
- Bluetooth 4.0 LE
- Android 4.2.2
- 4MP Camera
- Speakers in the strap
To me the entire thing sounds like a nightmare hellride, but this is Samsung we’re talking about, and anything is in the realm of possibility. Here’s hoping it’ll last a longer and be a little more conservative on the high-end specs, so as to last longer and not burn our wrists.
