Well, we have already spent a fair amount of time with Samsung’s recently revealed Gear S smartwatch earlier this month, and came away more than pleased with it. Bac then, there was no concrete information concerning a release date, but it seems that there is more definite information revealed today thanks to Samsung’s official statement. Samsung mentioned that the Samsung Gear S will arrive over to the U.S. later this fall, where it will be made available through all four major mobile carriers, namely AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint and Verizon Wireless. As for the individual pricing, that remains to be seen, and it will most probably be largely connected ot how the carriers want to sell them.
Just to recap, the Samsung Gear S will be a Tizen-powered, where it will measure 39.8mm x 58.3mm x 12.5 mm (1.57″ x 2.30″ x 0.49″), sport a 360 x 480 pixels resolution with a pixel density of 300 ppi, all on a 2.0″ Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen display. There will be a dual-core 1 GHz Snapdragon 8226 processor, and it will feature 3G, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.1 connectivity. There is no camera embedded in this smartwatch, which is not much of a big deal actually, while it is capable of stashing away up to 4GB of data thanks to its internal memory capacity. The battery itself is rated at 300mAh, and it will feature the following sensors – accelerometer, gyro, proximity, compass, heart rate, barometer, and UV light. [Press Release]
