Samsung has already made a number of its devices official under the roof of the Mobile World Congress 2014 held in Barcelona, Spain a couple of days back. Among all, the most awaited one was obviously the Galaxy S5 smartphone, which comes with an excellent camera feature and much more.
However, the company's wearable devices which got unveiled at the same show are also equally worth noticing. But in the busy times at the MWC 2014, what the South Korean tech giant forgot to mention was the market availability of these devices.
But not to worry, apart from the Galaxy S5 smartphone, other devices' availability have been revealed recently. According to the SamMobile's source, the trio wearable devices viz. Gear 2, Gear 2 Neo and the health band called the Gear Fit will roll out globally on and around the 14th week of this year, which means that these devices will be available for buying starting the last week of March.
Also, other important information has leaked out which suggests that the price of the Gear 2 devices will be fairly priced lesser that the company's first one. The reports online also suggest that the three wearable devices will be in fact launched soon after the Galaxy S5 goes on sale globally.
Samsung's latest smartwatches run on the Tizen OS, instead of Google's Android mobile OS. The Gear 2 is still a companion device, like its predecessor. You can still make calls, send messages and click pictures. The second generation intelligent watch doesn't come with 3G SIM slot nor Wi-Fi connectivity. The device features a 1.6-inch Super AMOLED display having a resolution of 320 x 320 pixels. There is a dual-core processor, and a 2MP camera. The Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo differ in the fact that the Gear 2 comes with a 2 MP camera that is embedded onto the watch face.
