"Bloomberg has previously said it will not be flexible."

PA's choice of thumbnail picture is a bit confusing.

i think it will be flexible in sense that it will be curved like G-Nex.

A tablet/camera processor in a smart watch? No thanks. I'd prefer another smart watch over burnt wrists.

mars rover is working with just few mhz, lol, dont know what samsung is trying to achieve here with all this high specs.
google just showed highest specs is not required to do simple tasks.
i guess samsung needs a korean translation.

1GB RAM for a smartwatch!!! Dafaq! I just need to see the time and probably the date and maybe 1 or 2 features! The rest my phone can do. Why do I need another device that I will have to charge twice a day apart from my tablet, my phone, my laptop. my camera etc! I think these things are meant to make life easy... *sigh*
All I do now is charge something one after another the whole day..!!

People are actually bitching about too much RAM on a device? What makes you think this device will need to be charged twice day?

Read the specs. If it contains the 2011 exynos chipset with bluetooth, nfc etc then you will be tempted to connect your phone to it to receive calls and that means more battery drainage. How big do you think the battery will be here? So i am not wrong when I say it will need twice a day charge.
And I am not bitching about too much RAM. The price is also a factor which will be more if it contains more RAM. Not everyone can afford high specs u knw! Thats all I need to say.

There is a device that will suit you. Its called a watch (the normal kind). If you dont want a smart watch then dont buy one. Simple

Dual core 1.5ghz watch? Completely the wrong approach for wearable tech IMO. Keeping it cool and days of battery life is definitely the key. And if that cant be achieved yet then personally I think that Smartwatches and the ilk should wait a couple years and let technology catch up.

It's amazing how we sometimes think we r more smarter than tech companies like we can do what they do. The watch is not out yet. Aome people should just Save their stupid comments when it is out. Only an idiot believes rumors and starter behaving like the device will turn out that way. What part of rumor don't some ppl understand?

i'm not sure but running a light task on a fast processor will produce less heat than a low spec processor...

Funny i remember a few years ago like early 2004 or 2008 LG was the first phone watch with front camera in it before all these smart watches came out. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CDhRY1ce_wI

i think a single core VIA processor with 512mb of ram should be enough for a smartwatch...
