Samsung is all set to launch its first smartwatch based on the Android Wear platform at the Google I/O event. But it looks like that the Korean manufacturer couldn’t keep its details under the wraps and they have leaked on to the interweb before the launch. The watch will go by the name of Gear Live and will be showcased later today at the I/O event. Post the unveiling the smartwatch will be launched on July 7th, which is merely a couple of weeks away.
The source who revealed the name has also revealed the complete specifications of the Gear Live. According to ALT 1040, the Gear Live will come with a 1.63-inch Super AMOLED display with resolution of 320 x 320 pixels and 1.2GHz single-core processor coupled with 512MB of RAM. The internal storage capacity of the smartwatch will stand at 4GB. It will be IP67 certified which will make it dust and water proof.
Bluetooth 4.0 will be present for connectivity and a 300mAh battery unit will be giving it the juice to run. Needless to say, the display will be a square unit and it will follow the design philosophy of other Gear smartwatches. It will tip the scales at merely 59 grams and will have the dimensions of 37.9 x 56.4 x 8.9mm. With the launch of Samsung Gear Live, there will be total of 3 smartwatches based on Android Wear platform.
Samsung has till now been launching only Tizen based smartwatches which haven’t been doing very well for the brand. Let us see if this Android Wear based smartwatch is able to work their charm.
