Samsung is finally unveiling its smart clock: 1.63, Super AMOLED, 70 Apps And support for a limited number of devices
As expected, the giant Korean company took advantage of the stage at the IFA 2013 exhibition in Berlin to take the first step in the next hot battlefield,Galaxy Gear - Its new smartwatch.
God-Galaxy Gear features a 1.63-inch Super AMOLED square screen with a resolution of 320 × 320 pixels. The resolution itself certainly will not chart anyone nowadays, but on such a small screen the result is a not-quite-bad pixel density of about 277 ppi, especially if one assumes that the smartwatch users are likely to hold at a greater distance from their eyes, compared to Unlocked.
The rest of the hardwareGalaxy Gear consists of an Exynos core with a single Cortex A9 core at 800MHz speed, 512MB RAM, internal 4GB storage, speaker and microphone, a dedicated operating system (which is obviously not Android-based) that currently supports 70 Apps And a 315mAh battery that should last for "more than a day" of operation - if you see yourself buying Smart watch In the not too distant future, you should get used to the fact that you will have another electronic product that will need to be loaded daily.
The FrontGalaxy Gear is made of stainless steel while the rest of the watch body and strap (which probably can not be replaced) are made of a rubber-like material which will be available in several shades. The tee of theGalaxy Gear inhabits the camera device, featuring a BSI sensor of 1.9 megapixel, autofocus and the ability to shoot 10 videos seconds in 720p quality.
God-Galaxy Gear is not a mobile device in itself - its principle of operation is based on connecting to a supportive smart device based on the energy-efficient Bluetooth 4.0 standard and turning it into a complementary accessory that can make calls, give voice commands, record audio reminders, receive alerts, control apps (supported), make a smartphone or טאבלט Which is connected to it to give a sign of life in case of loss and more.
The nature of the Galaxy Gear's operation brings us to its main disadvantages, the main one being its price - the smartwatch of סמסונג Will begin to be sold worldwide this month for $ 299, a price that sounds very expensive for a device that actually functions as a remote control for Smart device Other.
Another disadvantage is the support of theGalaxy Gear, which includes only the Galaxy S3, Galaxy S4, Galaxy Note 2, Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy Note 10.1 in its new version - with only the new Note 3 and Note 10.1 (unveiled next to theGalaxy Gear will offer support immediately, while the other devices mentioned above will have to wait for a version to support.
While this is the most popular devices of the סמסונג, But the limitation of the Galaxy Gear to the products of סמסונג And a very small number of models reinforces the sense that the smart clock is a kind of gimmick, not a product designed to succeed in its own right and create a new category in the electronics market.
