update / SM-R382 passed FCC, described in doc’s as 10mm lower unit!
SM-R382 after passing Bluetooth certification, visited FCC and passed it also. Certified wearable has only Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity and according to fcc documents lost 10mm in height compared to Gear 2 with it’s 37 x 46 mm dimensions. Gear 2: 36.9 x 58.4 Gear 2 Neo: 37.9 x 58.8 mm
Judging by the device name pattern SM-R38x it seems that this wearable might be a part of Gear 2 family. After The Gear 2 Solo (SM-R710) it is another yet unannounced and unnamed Samsung wearable device.
SammyToday suspects that SM-R382 could be a Gear 2 running Google’s Android Wear OS and might be presented among other wearables at upcoming Google I/O event.
update // Samsung filled a trademark registration application for GALAXY Wear name two weeks ago. Suits well a Samsung device running Android Wear operating system doesn’t it? Also keep in mind that Samsung was listed among others OEM’s to launch an Android Wear device at the OS launch.
update 2 // apparently device will not be named GALAXY Wear, Samsung decided to stop the registration process for such trademark in Korea – screenshot from Korea Intellectual Property Rights Service (click for full screen):
