Samsung just launched the Gear S, but the 3G smartwatch wasn’t the only wearable mentioned in Samsung’s press release. The other device is Gear Circle, a pair of wireless headphones that clasp together like a kind of high-tech necklace.

The Gear Circle isn’t the first design of its kind, with LG, Motorola, and a few other headphone makers dabbing into the Bluetooth sports headsets niche in the past. But Samsung’s device stands out through its design and the vibration feature, that can alert you of incoming calls and notifications. The headphones feature a magnetic clasp that lets you tie them together so the device doesn’t fall off when you’re not using it.

The Gear Circle features Bluetooth 3.0 and is capable of pairing with two devices at the same time, which should come in handy if you also sport a smartwatch. The 180 mAh battery charges via microUSB and should be good for 9 hours of playback.

Samsung is no stranger of high-end headphones and speakers – the company’s Level line of devices recently began selling in the US to good reception.

Samsung announced the Gear Circle would roll out in international markets in October. No word on pricing just yet.

Curved display SIM-equipped Samsung Gear S made official!

Posted by wicked August - 28 - 2014 - Thursday Comments Off

A report of a standalone Samsung smartwatch and another suggesting that Samsung would also release a smartwatch with a curved display have both proven to be true.

Samsung surprised us a little tonight with its announcement of the Samsung Gear S! While its Unpacked event is just around the corner, Samsung probably didn’t want to divert too much attention from the highly-anticipated Galaxy Note 4, and also likely wanted to pre-empt LG’s announcement of the G Watch R.

What makes the Samsung Gear S stand out from the G Watch R and the other smartwatches we’re likely to see at IFA 2014, other than the fact that it runs on Tizen, is that the Gear S isn’t a companion device, but can function independently of the smartphone to make and receive calls. That’s possible thanks to the SIM-slot on the back.

Of course, pairing with your smartphone, via Bluetooth, is still possible, and users can easily switch between syncing with their phones or using the smartwatch as a standalone device.

One of the key features of the Gear S is its 2-inch curved AMOLED  display, with a high resolution of 360 x 480. With everything else it packs, the Gear S is certainly an exciting device for its hardware, arguably more than for its software. You can check out the full list of specifications and features in the table below.

Samsung will make the Gear S available in October. It’s likely to be prioritized for Asian and European markets as they generally tend to play much nicer with unlocked, open hardware and they are easier markets for Samsung to enter initially.

Being a 3G device, the Gear S will work on T-Mobile and AT&T, but details on the US launch are still unknown.

Samsung Gear S unveiled: a Tizen watch that can stand solo

Posted by wicked August - 28 - 2014 - Thursday Comments Off

Finally giving rumors a rest, Samsung has unveiled the Gear S smartwatch ahead of IFA 2014. And this is one smartwatch that is sure to take Samsung’s and Google‘s frenemy relationship to a new level, as it has two things that Google would not want to see on a smartwatch: Tizen and independent 3G connectivity.

Ever since the Galaxy Gear, Samsung has been rumored to be working on a smartwatch that can make and take calls on its own. That has finally taken form in the Gear S, where S most likely stands for the “Solo” name rumored in the past. With its own 3G connectivity, the smartwatch doesn’t have to rely on a smartphone for both essential and sometimes superfluous tasks. On the Gear S, you can receive and send messages, which of course implies it has a QWERTY keyboard, and take and make calls. But should you choose to do so, you can opt to switch back to the conventional Bluetooth pairing with a smartphone and Samsung promises that data will be seamlessly synced between the two.

Curiously, the hardware for the Gear S hasn’t changed at all. Here you have a 1.0 GHz dual-core processor, 512 MB of RAM, and 4 GB of internal storage. But aside from processor speeds, the most worrying part is the battery, which remains at the same 300 mAh. With the added 3G connectivity and potentially more things you can do with the smartwatch, you’d think it would require at the very least a battery that can last longer in an always connected state. Oversight or conscious design decision? We may never know.

One thing that has indeed change and improved is the display, which is now larger and curved. The 2.0-inch Super AMOLED screen now has a rectangular resolution of 360×480. But the most notable change is, of course, the curved contours. Unlike LG, who just announced the round-faced G Watch R, Samsung has stuck to a conventional smartwatch shape, opting instead to go for comfort. At least according to its official PR statement. This is one of those times when you really have to wear one to experience that change. The straps are still interchangeable, so you can mix and match to your aesthetic tastes.

The Gear S, unfortunately, doesn’t run Android Wear, which will most likely irk Google even further. Samsung is sticking to Tizen, which it claims has more than 1,000 apps available, at least for smartwatches. It will be hard to prove or disprove that claim, but at least early adopters are assured that their basic app needs will be met. The Samsung Gear S is scheduled to launch in October, though pricing details have been left out for now. A new Bluetooth headset called Samsung Circle will also be debuting alongside the smartwatch. Expect both to be present at IFA 2014 next week.

Samsung makes the Gear S official with curved display and 3G connectivity

Samsung Gear S_Blue Black_2

We knew Samsung would unveil a new smartwatch at IFA, but they decided to pull the curtain a little early. The Gear S will sport 3G connectivity and a curved Super AMOLED display. Samsung feels the 3G connectivity will give consumers the “freedom to live their life on the go,” but we’re not really sure why it’s necessary.

The curved display is probably the more important feature as it’s 2-inches (360 x 480) and features a conversation view and condensed font. According to Samsung, it will fit your wrist more comfortably than a traditional non-curved smartwatch. It’s also paired with a flexible wrist strap for more comfort.

Samsung Gear S_Pure White_2

The Gear S is Tizen based so it will only work with Samsung devices. It will include features such as turn-by-turn pedestrian navigation by HERE, 24 hours news and views service from The Financial Times, S Health, Nike+ Running, and more.

The full specs include a 2-inch (360 x 480) Super AMOLED display, 1.0 GHz dual-core processor, 512 MB of RAM, 4 GB of internal storage, WiFi: 802.11 b/g/n, A-GPS/Glonass, Bluetooth 4.1, USB 2.0, 3G (900/2100 or 850/1900) connectivity, 2G (900/1800 or 850/1900) connectivity, IP67 certified, and 300 mAh battery (2 days). It will be offered in either Blue Black or Pure White, and it will be available globally in October. Unfortunately no pricing was specified.

Several media outlets overseas in Asia are already getting their hands on the new Galaxy Mega 2. The people over at DroidSans did get a Galaxy Mega 2 and were kind enough to publish a preview of the device rather quickly. The front of the Galaxy Mega 2 features a 6-inch display with 720p resolution. Flip it over and you will find a familiar faux leather back panel. The inside of this big device is a processor straight from Samsung itself. The quad-core Exynos processor here is clocked at 1.4GHz and comes with Mali-400 GPU. The person previewing the device notes it is speedy and performs well. While the camera is only 8MP, it is said to be impressive due to the built-in HDR Mode.

Galaxy Note 4 the Date Episode 2-3

Our calendar is circled for September 3rd and we are ready to get our hands all over the Samsung Galaxy Note 4! The announcement is only a week away, and with all the details pretty much outed, it’s just a matter of waiting before everything is set in stone. Today we have a little something to get you all hyped up, though – the device’s stock wallpaper.

This QHD-ready (2560x2560p) wallpaper has been leaked and is ready for download. You can even use it on your own devices, but most of us currently sport 1080p phones, so very few can take advantage of the full resolution.

More than anything, it serves as a bit of proof that the display will, in fact, come with a QHD 2560x1440p resolution. Not that we doubted it at this point, but a bit more corroboration is always welcomed.

Those who are curious about other specs can always look back at out previous reports for more Galaxy Note 4 details. Camera and fingerprint reader information was recently rumored. Those are always interesting, but for a Galaxy Note overload you can check out our Note 4 rumor roundup.
