Do you want a Samsung Gear S2? Find out if your Android phone is compatible

Yesterday was the launch of the new smartwatch Samsung Gear S2, the bet of this company with a circular screen and with a compatibility superior to that of other models that this company had previously launched on the market (and everything is true, it must be said). Well, an official compatibility list has been published that Samsung itself has published and, therefore, confirms its complete and correct operation.

Before providing the list of phones confirmed by the Korean company, it must be said that yesterday’s presentation indicated that the base compatibility of the new Samsung Gear S2 is operating system Android 4.4 (KitKat) and a RAM amount of 1.5 GB. But, from what it seems, not all terminals that meet these requirements the new device works -or at least completely-, so it has been decided to publish a list confirming that no problems will be found.

The list

This is the list that has been published on the website of the new smartwatch of the Korean company that continues to use the Tizen operating system and, therefore, is completely official (On the right you can see the region of the model to which compatibility is confirmed, EU is the one corresponding to Europe):

Details to know about the new smartwatch

In case you are not sure what the new Samsung Gear S2 offers, below we provide the most interesting details of this model that will go on sale in October and will arrive in a normal variant and another called Classic:

  • Bluetooth and 3G versions
  • Sliding frame operating system management
  • Compatible with Samsung Pay
  • 1.2-inch SuperAMOLED 320 x 320 display
  • Processor: Exynos 3250 Bluetooth model and MSM8x26 3G model
  • 512MB RAM
  • Battery: 250 mAh Bluetooth models and 300 mAh 3G model
  • Water resistant (IP68)
  • WiFi and NFC connectivity

The truth is that after seeing them yesterday, it is clear that the Samsung Gear S2 is a attractive model that surely more than one is considering the purchase, especially due to the greater compatibility it offers (curious that the terminals of Samsung itself that can use this smartwatch are not indicated, so you have to think that they are all those that comply with the operating system and RAM listed above).

Samsung Gear S2 Compatible Apps

Before finalizing a detail that I do not want to stop indicating: the number of companies that have confirmed applications for the Samsung Gear S2 is quite wide (previous image), but there is one that is basic and that should be tried to be from the game itself or yes: WhatsApp. Do not you think?
