The teardown reveals Snapdragon 400 chip similar to the LG G watch
The Samsung Gear Live has made its way to the Google Play Store and will start to ship from July 11th. It is the company’s first smartwatch powered by the Android Wear OS. Google has expanded the availability of the smartwatch and now it is available in three more countries. Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Japan, South Korea, Spain, United Kingdom, United States. Australia, Japan and South Korea are all getting the smartwatch and looks like the availability will just keep on increasing.
The Samsung Gear Live is IP67-certified and in the USA it has been priced at $199. This Android Wear smartwatch is also going to be available through Samsung’s own retail networks by the end of this month. From the inside, the Samsung Gear Live runs on the Snapdragon 400 chipset which is most probably a downclocked chip probably using only one of the four Cortex-A7 cores but it still quite widespread now. The same hardware is being featured on the LG’s G watch. A recently leaked picture also shows how the insides of the Gear Live and G Watch differ from one another.
