Samsung unveiled the Galaxy Note 3 and the Galaxy Note 10.1 (2014 Edition) at the IFA conference in Berlin, but it was the Galaxy Gear smartwatch that stole the show. The smartwatch has since been the talk of the town and now Pranav Mistry has posted a couple of photos clicked from it.
Mistry, who had a huge hand in the development of the device, clicked the photos from the1.9-megapixel camera located on the smartwatch’s strap. The quality of the photos is decent at best and it has managed to capture the colors well under good lighting conditions.
To remind you of the specs, the Galaxy Gear sports a 1.63-inch Super AMOLED (320×320 pixels) display and is powered by an 800MHz processor supplemented with 512MB RAM and 4GB of storage. Other features included are the aforementioned camera on the strap, a 315mAh battery and built-in speakers and mic. On the connectivity front, the device supports Bluetooth and sensors like accelerometer and gyroscope.
Samsung has partnered with 70 odd apps including the earlier speculated fitness-related apps like MyFitnessPal and RunKeeper, and other apps like Evernote, Line, eBay and more. Moreover, users will also be able to access smartphone features like S Voice, Find My Device, and a pedometer from their Galaxy Gear smartwatch.
The device will initially work only with the Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy Note 10.1, but with software updates it will become compatible with the Galaxy S4, Galaxy S III and the Galaxy Note II.
