    Samsung Galaxy Gear Hardware Specs and Software Features Leaked; Coming in 5 Colors

    The mobile data industry seems poised to shift toward a potential new product, the wearable smart device. We've had rumors about such devices from a number of different manufacturers for quite some time. We've even had actual devices hit the streets to limited success due to their limited functionality. If the latest rumor is accurate, Samsung will be making a big new push into this potentially emerging market in a very short time. Could the new Galaxy Gear smartwatch from Samsung be the first solid step forward for this technology?

    Here are the rumored leaked specs of the device for you guys to determine if you think it will be a success or a flop:
    • 2.5-inch 320 x 320 OLED display, one capable of showing a full range of colors
    • Dual-core processor, specifically from the Exynos 4 family (previously rumored to be a Samsung dual-core Exynos 4212 processor clocked at 1.5GHz - including the Mali-400 GPU inside)
    • A camera built into the wrist strap
    • Speakers tiny enough that they can fit into the strap’s clasp
    • NFC, Bluetooth 4.0 LE
    • Probably Android 4.2 at first
    • Tightly integrated with Samsung’s Galaxy smartphones - examples: notifications on your smart watch can instantly transfer to the phone, the same can be done with email

    According to the source of this intel, the Galaxy Gear will use its own third-party app store from Samsung and skip Google Play entirely. It obviously remains to be seen if the device will actually do enough to be worth owning. The device is likely to be officially announced at Samsung's September 4th pre-IFA press event. What do you think of this burgeoning new trend?

    Update: We have a new report from this morning that the Galaxy Gear smartwatch will be coming in five different colors: white, orange, grey, black, and “white gold”. The source of this intel also reiterated that the reveal date will be September 4th.

    I just can't see anyone going for those. Screen's too small to be very useful, IMHO.
