Samsung's upcoming Tizen OS-powered smartwatch has not been officially confirmed yet, but some specs were spotted in the developer SDK unveiled by the South Korean giant back in May. Now, an exclusive report by SamMobile uncovers even more details about the Orbis smartwatch - a smart wearable that is expected to hit the market as Samsung Gear A.

According to all the leaks that made it online so far, these are the highlights of the Samsung Gear A:

  • Processor: 1.2 GHz dual-core Exynos 3472 with Mali-400 MP4 graphics
  • Memory/Storage: 768 MB RAM; 4 GB internal storage
  • Display: Super AMOLED with 360X360 pixels, size unknown for now
  • Connectivity: WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.1, GPS
  • Operating system: Tizen OS with UX customized for circular screens
  • Battery: 250 mAh

In addition to the above, the Gear A is expected to pack heart rate sensor, accelerometer, gyroscope, and barometer. The interface will be controlled both via a digital crown and the bezel ring. The smartwatch will most likely be unveiled at the Unpacked event at IFA or even earlier in mid-August, next to the Galaxy Note 5, but this remains to be seen.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
