We’re one week away from getting our hands on the Galaxy Gear smartwatch, but rumors and leaks will continue to roll. Today’s news is that it will be offered in both 6GB and 8GB versions. I don’t know about you, but those options seem a little too close. 4GB and 8GB would make more sense.
Now onto battery life. People don’t have time to charge a smartwatch during the day so it has to last at least 16 to 18 hours, but the Galaxy Gear is only rumored to last 10 hours. If this is correct, that’s going to be a serious problem.
Most of the other specs we have heard about are confirmed, including a 2.5-inch (320 x 320) OLED display, a dual-core 1.5GHz CPU, 1 GB of RAM, Bluetooth 4.0, and speakers in the strap. However, the camera has been rumored to be 2MP, but now the word is that it will be 4MP capable of capturing 720p video.
The Galaxy Gear looks intriguing, but lets hope Samsung doesn’t mess with it too much as in make it only compatible with Galaxy phones or offer it with only 10 hours of battery life.
