The photos were obtained by VentureBeat who was recently shown one of the prototypes.
This weekend, a source showed us one of the prototypes sent to developers and a few select partners. Note that Samsung is highly security conscious in protecting its designs, and occasionally sends off prototypes that don’t mirror the final design. But it won’t be far off. My source, who requested anonymity, also showed me an internal promotional marketing video for the watch. The video was not developed by Samsung, but by an independent team working closely with Samsung. I wasn’t allowed to photograph the smartwatch itself, but I snapped a few stills from the video, which clearly shows the high-quality OLED display, with its square screen.
The smartwatch is about 3-inches diagonally and features a large rectangular shaped bezel. There is Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity, as well as a 4-megapixel camera.
● Samsung S Voice for voice commands
● Preloaded with Android apps for social media, health tracking, etc.
● Integration with a companion Galaxy S phone or tablet
● An easy-to-use swipe function to access apps, the built-in camera, and the photo gallery
● Call logs (A cool use-case: You can initiate a call from the watch to a Samsung smartphone device)
● Internet access
● Power button on the side
● Social media integration — you can share to your Facebook or Twitter account from the watch
● 10+ hours battery life
