Samsung revealed the Gear S2 a couple days ago when they unveiled the Galaxy Note 5 and S6 Edge+. Details about the device is slim, but we have enough evidence to know how cool it is going to look. The fashion-centric smartwatch will aim directly towards the fashion and design oriented. The radical change for the Gear will set a bar for the upcoming wearable devices.
What we know about the current Gear S
The Gear separates itself from the smartwatch crowd. Whereas most smartwatches are powered by Android Wear, Sammy is taking a page out of Apple’s playbook and separating themselves by creating their own software. It further pushes the bar as it comes with a curved 420 x 420 display, making it one of the most crisp display’s in the smartwatch market.
What we know about the upcoming Gear S2
Codenamed Orbis, from the start we knew Samsung was working on a circular watch. The Gear S2 ditches the cured OLED display for a full circular display. This markets the device with the likes of the LG G Watch Urbane and Motorola Moto 360. Complete with a dark strap, simplistic watch face, and brushed metal bezel, it makes for a fresher watch design. Samsung is also designing the device with a full watch face instead of the flat tire design like the one found on the Moto 360. More details about the Gear S2 will be revealed on September 3rd at the IFA Show in Berlin.
