The newest GEAR by Samsung has a few surprises. The first one is built-in 3G and the SIM-card. Woohoo! Now you are able to call using your hand and leave your smartphone at home! Phone calls, sending and receiving messages are available over a cellular network, as well as, say, download updates from social networks. Pairing with a smartphone is not required.
Inside Gear S you’ll find a dual-core processor with 1.0 GHz frequency and the operating system Tizen, but not Android Wear. Such a surprise! The device is equipped with a curved 2-inch touch screen Super AMOLED 360×480 pixels. Amount of RAM is 512 MB and internal flash memory is 4 GB. Dimensions 39,8×58,3×12,5 mm.
