has been teasing the Gear S2 smartwatch for weeks now. The
company is clearly very proud of its first wearable with a round touchscreen,
so much so that one of its executives has already shown us what it
looks like on his wrist.
As we get closer to September 3,
which is when the big announcement will take place at IFA in Berlin, we're now
seeing two models of the Gear S2 passing through the FCC.
The US regulatory agency has
certified both the Samsung SM-R720 and the SM-R732. According to past leaks and
rumors, the former of those will be sold as the Gear S2, while the latter is
due to get the Gear S2 Classic moniker.
The FCC process has revealed that
both of these will come with Bluetooth and Wi-Fi built-in, but neither will
also sport mobile data connectivity. That's apparently going to be reserved for
a third variation of Samsung's first round smartwatch.
Previous leaks have suggested that
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.
