A couple of weeks ago Samsung announced a heavily blinged up special edition of its latest smartwatch, the Gear S2 by de Grisogono. The Korean wearable maker teamed up with the renowned jewelry company in order to produce a smartwatch that looks more like a piece of jewelry than an electronic device.
During the official announcement pricing wasn't revealed, but we did expect it to be through the roof. Well, according to a new report that is just the case. It turns out that the Gear S2 by de Grisogono is set to cost a whopping $15,000 when it becomes available this summer. You'll find it in Samsung's and de Grisogono's retail outlets.
The watch has no less than 127 white and black diamonds on it, a rose gold rotating bezel, and a black galuchat bracelet. On the inside however it's identical to a vanilla Gear S2, sporting the same specs.
We're talking about a 1.2-inch 360x360 Super AMOLED touchscreen, the Exynos 3250 Dual chipset with a 1 GHz dual-core Cortex-A7 CPU, 512 MB of RAM, 4GB of storage, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, NFC, a heart rate monitor, and a 250 mAh battery. It runs the Tizen wearable platform. The de Grisogono edition gets a special watch face though.
