New Samsung event scheduled for June 2, Gear Fit 2 likely to be announced then
Since this isn't an Unpacked event, we're pretty sure that there will be no new smartphones to see. Instead, Samsung will probably announce the Gear Fit 2 - its next generation activity tracker that should replace the original Gear Fit (released back in 2014).
According to various leaked photos, the Gear Fit 2 isn't too different from the original Gear Fit, allegedly sporting a curved AMOLED display with 216 x 432 pixels, and featuring rubbery bands of various colors. The device will be dust- and water-resistant (IP68-certified), running Tizen OS. GPS, a dual-core processor, and 512 MB of RAM should be on board as well. At launch, the original Gear Fit was priced at $199, so we think the new model won't cost more than $200. But we'll see about that.
Alongside the Gear Fit 2, Samsung might also announce a brand new pair of touch-controlled Bluetooth earbuds dubbed Gear IconX. It's said that these are dust- and water-resistant, too, offering 4 GB of internal memory - thus being able to replace your music player (if you have one).
