The Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch will be a Jelly Bean-powered device with a 2.5-inch OLED display with a 320x320-pixel resolution, if reports by AmongTech prove true.

In addition, the Gear could come in two different storage capacities: 6GB and 8GB options. Other specifications in the concept device include a dual-core 1.5GHz processor, a 4-megapixel camera capable of 720p video recording, and 1GB RAM, with a battery life up to 10 hours.

The Gear's hardware and software details allegedly come from an anonymous Samsung warehouse worker, days ahead of the watch's debut. One thing we can be sure of is the Gear's imminent unveiling. Speaking to the Korea Times, Samsung's executive vice president of mobile, Lee Young-hee, recently confirmed the tech giant's plans to reveal the smartwatch on September 4, alongside the expected Galaxy Note 3 smartphone.
