Our Samsung Gear 2 Neo unboxing video is here, but, we’ll be honest straight from paragraph no. 1: we’ll wait for our Samsung Galaxy S 5 review unit to land at our doorstep until we’ll review the smartwatch. Why? Because we want to take advantage of the added features of the S5 on one hand, and, on the other hand, we want to experience the complete 2014 line-up UX, as Samsung intended it at the Barcelona launch event.
As far as the Gear 2 Neo is concerned, we’re looking at a natural evolution of last year’s Galaxy Gear, with some design, internals, as well as functionality improvements. It is now running Tizen as its core OS, and packs a 1GHz dual-core processor, 512MB or RAM, 4GB of internal storage; there’s no camera on the Neo — as opposed to the Gear 2 — but there’s an IR blaster you can use to remotely control your TV or STP. Check out our Samsung Gear 2 Neo unboxing video below, and let us know if you’d exchange your 2013 Galaxy Gear for the Gear 2 Neo (or Gear 2).
