While the Samsung Galaxy Gear smart watch was only compatible with one smartphone at launch, Samsung is looking to make quick work of bringing compatibility to more of their top handsets in due time. The Samsung Galaxy S4 has already started to get that upgrade in places like Germany, and units in other regions should be seeing that same upgrade (which will also bring folks up to Android 4.3) quite soon.
Samsung also announced that update would be coming to the Samsung Galaxy S3, Samsung Galaxy Note 2, Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8 and 6.3, the Samsung Galaxy S4 Active, the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom, and the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini (which is coming to the US next month). We suppose it’s better to be late than to never show up at all.
The Galaxy Gear sports a 1.63-inch 320 x 320 color display, a 1.9 megapixel camera sensor, Bluetooth 4.0, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of internal storage, a 315mAh battery, an 800MHz processor and more. Let’s just hope Samsung is also still working on bringing compatibility to devices which don’t bear the Samsung name.
