Samsung has been rumored to be working on an update to the Galaxy Gear smartwatch. Although demand of the original hasn’t been quite hot as expected, Samsung appears to be pushing the smartwatch to consumers via two rumored new models, the Galaxy Gear 2and the Galaxy Gear 2 Neo. Samsung products with the name “Neo” suffix are watered down versions of the original so the Galaxy Gear 2 Neo is expected to have lower specs, and naturally, lower price.
The photos of the Samsung Galaxy Gear 2 and Galaxy Gear 2 Neo were leaked by @evleaks on Twitter. The images show a home button below the display. There are also cameras on top of the display although they are different on each model. The question is, will the Samsung Galaxy Gear 2 and Galaxy Gear 2 Neo run Android or Tizen as some rumors indicate? The UI seen on the leaked photos show the same design but it doesn’t mean it’s still Android that runs underneath the devices.
Expect the announcement of the Samsung Galaxy Gear 2 and Galaxy Gear 2 Neo to come in the following days.
