Android Wear-powered Samsung Smartwatch to Be Called Gear Live, Specs and Release Date Leaked

Samsung Android Wear

Google I/O 2014 is just a couple of hours away and details about the products expected to debut at Google’s annual technology event are starting to arrive. Last week, it was rumored that Samsung will unveil their first Android Wear smartwatch today at Google I/O, and now we return with fresh details about the device.

The report comes from Spanish outlet Alt1040, a source we’re not familiar with, therefore we’re advising you to take it with a pinch of salt. According to the aforementioned publication, Samsung will call their first Android Wear-powered smartwatch Gear Live, also adding that the new device will hit the stores starting July 7. The report checks with the previous rumors saying that the South Korean company will extend their Gear family with a new Android Wear product.

Alt1040 also talks Samsung Gear Live technical specifications. If the report turns out true, then Sammy’s Android Wear smartwatch will arrive with a 1.63-inch Super AMOLED display with 320 x 320 resolution, a 1.2 GHz processor, and 512 MB of RAM. The Gear Live technical specs list also includes 4 GB of storage, Bluetooth 4.0, IP67 certification, 300 mAh battery, and a heart rate monitor. According to the Spanish publication the Gear Live measures 37.9 x 56.4 x 8.9 mm and has a weight of 59 grams.

 

As you might have already noticed, the alleged Gear Live technical specifications are similar to those of the Gear Neo, Samsung’s Tizen-powered smartwatch. There’s no information on the design of Gear Live, but you shouldn’t be too surprised if it looks similar to Gear 2 or Gear Neo.

As I was mentioning above, Samsung’s Android Wear-powered Gear Live is expected to make an official debut at today’s Google I/O 2014 event. Instead of rushing into conclusions we’re advising you to wait a couple more hours when we’ll learn everything about the new device.
