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.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
