Samsung left fans excited when they teased the upcoming Samsung Gear S2 smartwatch at the S6 edge+ and Note 5 launch event. The upcoming smartwatch will be seen at the IFA Berlin, a day before the show starts, on September 3rd. At this point we know that it will have a round display and a metal build, along with a rotating bezel.

A report published yesterday stated that the Gear S2 will also come with a nano SIM slot, hence allowing the smart watch to connect to cellular networks. This seems like good news as users will be able to make calls and use the internet, all from their wrist. Naturally then, the Gear S2 will come with Wi-Fi connectivity.

Keeping these features in mind, one would think that the S2 is not very different from the Gear S as that too had a nano SIM card slot and Wi-Fi connectivity. However, appearance wise, the two devices look nothing like each other (the Gear S has a curved rectangular screen in contrast to the rounded design of the sequel).

While there has been no official confirmation on the price, the Gear S2 is rumoured to cost $462 USD ( approximately Rs. 30,000). However, September 3rd will reveal the true Gear S2, coupled with its pricing and features. Watch this space for more updates.
