As we expected, instead of unveiling a successor to the Galaxy Gear, Samsung has gone ahead of announced two brand new Galaxy Gear devices today, dubbed the Galaxy Gear 2 and the Galaxy Gear 2 Neo, both of which have ditched Android OS in favour of Samsung’s own Tizen OS.

Both of the devices also includes a 1.63 inch display, 512MB of RAM and a 4GB of onboard storage, and a dual-core 1GHz processor instead of the previous 800MHz processor in the original Galaxy Gear.

The differences start at the camera, the Gear 2 has a 2 megapixel camera and the Gear 2 Neo doesn’t feature any camera.

Both will also allow the user to accept and ignore both calls and messages, as well as track your fitness, with compatibility with the WatchON remote application that allows you to control your TV or set-top box using the watches inferred LED sensor.

The design has also been improved in the new watches, both still include a plastic design as well as a selection of colours.

The watch is said to last between 2 and 3 days in terms of battery life.

Both the Samsung Galaxy Gear 2 and the Samsung Galaxy Gear 2 Neo will be available worldwide from April.
