Neptune Duo Smartwatch With External Screen - The Hub And The Pocket Screen
While most smartwatch manufacturers, including the big names like Motorola, Samsung, LG and even Apple, focus on using the smartphone’s processing power to do all the job and only allow basing interaction and info display on the wrist satellite, Montreal based start-up Neptune (the guys before the Neptune Pine we featured earlier) proposes a totally different approach – the smartwatch is the main gadget and the screen is secondary!

The Neptune Duo comes with two parts: The Hub wrist bracelet running on Android Lollipop and featuring a 2.4-in curved touchscreen, a quad-code processor, 64GB of storage, 1,000mAh rechargeable battery, a speaker and a microphone as well as 3G/4G, Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth and NFC connectivity. Basically, the HUB is a fully functional Android device capable of placing and answering calls, writing emails, messages and SMS, surf the internet, GPS navigation and everything else a regular device can do!
The Neptune Duo‘s second part it’s a 5-in 720p Pocket Screen which features 2MP front and 8MP rear cameras, ads an extra 2,8000mAh internal battery which can also be used as an external power pack and serves as screen extension to the Hub. The Pocket Screen connects to the Hub automatically (check the video to see it in action) and can not be used on it’s own being a simple display accessory to the main smartwatch device.

The Neptune Duo smartwatch can be pre-ordered and will set you back between $498US and $798US (higher the cash-down, bigger the savings) with delivery by the end of 2015.

Copy of Samsung Galaxy NX 4G - The Samsung 20.3MP DSLR Running On Android

While there are biggest Samsung fans (than I am) around, I must admit that Samsung is a company that never ceases to to amaze me by the simplicity of their products and their out-of-the-box thinking. Take for example the Samsung Galaxy NX model (also check the Samsung Galaxy Android Camera (EK-GC100) we featured earlier) – a DSLR-like camera with interchangeable lens that runs on Google’s Android and has access to tens of thousands of photo apps in the Google Play store! But let’s see what’s under the hood:

  • 20.3MP APS-C CMOS Sensor with flash
  • 1/6000 second top shutter speed
  • Fast AF (Hybrid AF System)
  • JPEG, RAW, RAW+JPEG capture and 1920 x 1080 HD video capture @ 30fps
  • Interchangeable Lens compatible with all NX System lenses
  • ISO range from 100 to 25,600
  • 4.8″ LCD touch screen (1.44-million dot resolution)
  • 1.6GHz Quad-core processor + DRIMe IV imaging processor + 2MB RAM + 16GB on board storage
  • Connectivity: GPS, Blutooth 4.0, WiFi, 3G/4G/LTE, NFC
  • Runs on Android Jelly Bean 4.2 with full access to Google Play store

Cool, isn’t it? Especially when you you can download your favorite photo and sharing aps from Google! There’s only one extra thing I wish Galaxy NX had – and that’s voice calling! But hey, I have to be reasonable here, this is not an iPhone or Android smartphone, this is a full camera in all its rights!
