The successor to the Gear S smartwatch is expected to make a full appearance at IFA 2015. This hasn't stopped the chief of Samsung Design America from teasing the device.

After the Stylebook tease and UI video, Samsung Design of America vice president Dennis Miloseski has provided yet another look at the upcoming Gear S2 smartwatch before any official announcements.

Miloseski has published on his instagram a photo of the Gear S2 on a user's wrist. The picture clearly shows the elegant circular screen with the caption "Giving the new Samsung Gear S2 a test drive" and the usual Samsung and wearable hashtags. The digital dial on the photo also appears to show the phases on the moon likely depending on the day of the month.

Recent leaks claim that the Gear S2 will feature a rotating bezel to navigate through applications and a 1.18-inch round display at 360 x 360 pixels. Core specifications may include an Exynos 3471 SoC, 768 MB RAM, 4 GB eMMC, Bluetooth 4.1, GPS, barometer, heart rate monitor, and an integrated 250 mAh battery.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
