Samsung Gear S Smartwatch Goes Up for Pre-Orders in India
Samsung’s Tizen-based Gear S smartwatch, announced earlier this year, is now available for pre-orders in India. The smartwatch is priced at Rs. 28,900 and is available for pre-order on the company’s online store for just Rs. 1,000.
The Gear S smartwatch sports a 2-inch curved AMOLED display with a resolution of 360×480 pixels. The watch will be powered by a dual-core processor clocked at 1 GHz and a 512MB RAM. It comes with 4 GB of storage and a 300mAh battery support, which Samsung claims can last up to two days.
However, the standout feature of the watch is a SIM card slot, which allows voice calling via 2G or 3G SIM. The watch also supports Bluetooth 4.0 and Wi-Fi connectivity, though it does not sport a camera. Unlike Samsung’s other Tizen-based Gear watches, it has a standalone music player.
That being said, the Gear S smartwatch is not a standalone device and requires one of the compatible Samsung smartphones to activate it and download apps for your watch.
