Samsung has been spending a lot of time in innovating new devices with advanced hardware and features, which evidently became very prominent when it launched the Galaxy Edge with two sided display. But another segment where the South Korean ace smartphone maker has been working equally hard is in the wearable department.
The company's Gear S2 smartwatch, which will probably be launched this year, has been teased by the company on several occasions. The round display featuring time piece from Samsung was also seen on the wrist of the company's executives in the past. Thus, we basically know how it looks like.
Now the same device, which will be likely announced at the IFA Berlin, next week on 3rd September, have evidently got a green signal from the US regulatory agency.
There were in fact two models that were highlighted on the website, viz. Samsung SM-R720 and the SM-R732. This goes hand in hand with the previous reports that said the Gear S2 (known as the Samsung Orbis) will be released in multiple variants. Well, the report then had also stated that the SM-R720 is the Gear S2 and the SM-R732 model number belongs the Gear S2 Classic. Anyway, now it no longer the rumor or probability but a fact that whether or not they get launched at the IFA 2015, these devices do exist.
Other details that have been mentioned on the FCC website suggests that both of these wearables will come with Bluetooth and Wi-Fi built-in. unfortunately, they will not sport mobile data connectivity, unlike the Gear Solo. You can say that this facility is being reserved for the company's next launch.
As far as the specs are concerned, according to the previous leaks, the Gear S2 will come with a 360x360 AMOLED touchscreen, an Exynos 3472 chipset, 768MB of RAM, 4GB of internal storage, NFC, as well as a bunch of sensors including a heart rate monitor. It will also probably be powered by a 250 mAh battery.
