Neptune Pine is a smartwatch with a 2.4" display, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, and is coming soon
The Pine watches are much more akin to wrist-wearable smartphones, than the smartwatches we've been seeing so far. The first major differences can be found in the large (for a watch) 2.4-inch TFT capacitive touchscreen and the fact that the Pine runs on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean – no Android Wear here. The screen is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass, and rocks a 320x240 resolution. The watch is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon S4, clocked at 1.2 GHz, 512 MB of RAM, and comes in 16 GB and 32 GB storage vatiants – both expandable via a microSD card. It has a slot for a Мicro-SIM card and is equipped with a microphone and speaker, so yes – you can actually make calls with this watch. It also supports Wi-Fi.
Additionally, the Pine features two (!) cameras, each having a dedicated flash. The main camera has a 5 MP resolution, whereas the front-facing one – 0.3 MP. The on-board sensors are an accelerometer, a gyroscope, a pedometer, and a digital compass. All of this gets its juice from a 810 mAh battery, which Neptune claims to last up to 10 hrs for music playback and up to 5 for video playback.
To top it off, the watchface is easily detachable from the body and straps, so you can use its phone capabilities more freely, or attach it to something else than your wrist. For now, the pre-order form lets you add a few optional accessories – a bumper case, a clip, and a helmet mount. All that aside – a vanilla 16 GB Pine will set you back $349, whereas ordering the 32 GB version costs an extra $100.
