New Samsung Galaxy Gear 2 and Galaxy Gear 2 Neo allegedly pictured

Samsung really has a thing for the name “Neo”, as it seems that it’s going to use it for one of its upcoming smartwatches - after including it in the monikers of several smartphones, most notably the Galaxy Note 3 Neo.

According to @evleaks, Samsung has two new smartwatches, called Galaxy Gear 2 and Galaxy Gear 2 Neo. The former can be seen on the left, while the latter is allegedly pictured on the right. As their names suggest, the Gear 2 should have more advanced features than the Gear 2 Neo. The Gear 2 appears to have a metal body, while the Gear 2 Neo is likely made from plastic. Both smartwatches seem to have cameras above their displays, and home buttons below.

Just recently, we heard that one of Samsung’s new smartwatches could run a version of Tizen instead of Android. While the leaked image does not confirm this, it doesn't invalidate it, either.

We’ll certainly find out more on Samsung’s next-gen Galaxy Gear smartwatches this Monday, on February 24, at MWC 2014 - where the South Korea company is expected to officially announce quite a few new products, including the long-rumored Galaxy S5 smartphone.

Update: @evleaks tweeted that these new watches "are not Galaxy-branded" after all. This could mean that they are indeed running Tizen. We'll bring more on this as soon as new details are available.

Galaxy Gear 2 Neo? Neo? Really? Neo? So, it's gonna be more expensive than the original Galaxy Gear 2 just like the Galaxy Note 3 Neo more expensive than the original Galaxy Note 3? Yeah, Neo. That's what it's all about, a variant that has lower specs but more expensive than the original one, Neo. Neo?

Guess what kiddo? It's a freaking Neo, a Neo that goes to your soul that matches your horoscope Leo and your name Leo Neo McRio. It knows you like to play Angry Birds Rio and wants to visit Rio de Janeiro. It's a freaking Neo.

I don't rap, but Neo made me do it. That's the power of the Neo. Okay, let's get back to the topic, Samsung is getting retarded, first the Grand Neo, then the Note 3 Neo, then now the Gear 2 Neo. The person who named these devices must be good at rapping. Neo.

They look cheaper then the first one but still look good at the same time. Samsung will not stop until they get it right. But I'm only pulling the trigger once their at $50 to $100.

looks better than the first Gear, but looks like Samsung is getting ready to start flooding another segment of the market
