Samsung Gear A Round Smartwatch Will Be Launched In Three VersionsBy cheatmaster 09:26 Mon, 26 Jul 2021 Comments
Samsung's first round smartwatch, which is hopefully going to be released by the discontinue of this year, has been leaking for months. The Gear A was codenamed Orbis, and recently its features and specs have been made public. Samsung itself even confirmed certain details about it too.
That said, the Gear A is still not official. That may change soon, but in the meantime we've got some recent information on it thanks to yet another leak.
This one says there will be at least three versions of the watch, boasting the model numbers SM-R720, SM-R730, and SM-R732, respectively. All of these apparently still have Orbis in their internal codenames. The SM-R720 is the Orbis 1, the SM-R730 is known inside Samsung as the Orbis S2, while the SM-R732 is the Orbis Classic.
It's unclear at this point what the exact differences between these variants will be. Perhaps Samsung will go the way of Apple and launch the smartwatch with multiple material choices. There might also be connectivity differences, as we have previously heard that one iteration of the Gear A will come with mobile data support on top of Wireless Fidelity (Wi-Fi) and Bluetooth.
The Gear A may be introduced to the world either during Samsung's Unpacked event on August 13, or at IFA in Berlin in a few weeks. It's been rumored to sport a 1.65-inch 360x360 Super AMOrganic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) touchscreen, the Exynos 3472 chipset, 768Mega Bytes (MB) of RAM, 4GB of storage, NFC, a heart rate monitor, and a 250 mAh battery. It will run a special version of Tizen. It will utilize a rotating bezel for easy navigation through the OS.
