The race of smartwatches begins to sharpen and new information appears about the Samsung or Google products. New images of Samsung Galaxy Gear 2 appeared on the internet.
The Twitter account @evleaks, who has published numerous images of gadgets to be launched have put a picture of two with the smartwatches from Samsung. We are talking of the Galaxy Gear 2 and Galaxy Gear 2 Neo. What is the difference between the two? Neo might be the cheaper variant for those who don’t want to pay big for a complementary accessory on their smartphone.
Also, the two could be launched in Barcelona at MWC 2014 with Tizen OS, even developed by Samsung. Samsung will present at MWC 2014 the Galaxy S5 model and the two Gear watches. This was explained even by representatives of the South Korean company. “We must ensure that we are ready to grow”, said Curtis Sasaki, vice president of Samsung, for Cnet. Basically, Tizen will be a free operating system without many applications, but will slowly grow, with programs made specifically for the intelligent watch.
