Samsung's recently launched Gear S2 smartwatch got sold out within 2 hours of opening the preorder window in South Korea. The device has been garnering quite a lot of attention from the online crowd from the very beginning.
The highlight of the Gear S2 3G is the ability to work independently without having the need to pair a compatible handset. Based on the latest report, it is clear that this gadget is going to be a winner, at least in South Korea. The ordered gadget will reach the door steps starting Oct. 2.
However, the South Korean tech giant reportedly listed only 1,000 units of the Samsung Gear S2 and Gear S2 Classic for preorder. Business Korea said that the new Samsung smartwatch received impressive reception, similar to the predecessor and the Apple Watch.
On the other hand, GSM Arena said that the Gear S2 will come bundled with about 16 to 18 apps, straight out of the box. But then, 12 preinstalled apps cannot be deleted from the device. These include Messages, Calls, Email, Gallery and S-Health.
In addition, a new app named “buddy,” which is capable of auto favoriting the contacts, cannot be removed either. Other apps include “Looking for My Device” and “Syrup Wallet.”While the former can be used to locate the connected devices, the latter is apparently a simple payment option specific to membership-based services.
As far as the Samsung Gear S2 price goes, Pocket Now said that the Tizen-powered gadget will apparently cost $350 in the U.S. The 3G variant and Gear S2 Classic, on the other hand, will be priced at $400 each. But then, readers should note that the South Korean tech titan has not confirmed the U.S. specific Gear S2 price thus far.
