A Samsung produced fashion shoot promoting the newly announced Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+ also shed more light on the upcoming Gear S2 round smartwatch. While the photos themselves don't provide any hints on functionality, they suggest that images revealed early this morning are of the device itself, rather than just a mock-up design.

"Fashion is forever changing," said Samsung in a look book highlighting the shoot. "Like style's greatest innovators, Samsung is devoted to wildly recreating and revamping the rules of fashion and tech."

"This season, Samsung takes a brave step forward by reimaging the classic circular watch, infusing it with functional technology and a touch of creativity. This new wearable device is a testament of Samsung's continual heritage as a wild innovator – creating a stunningly unique experience inspired by the fashion industry."

Previously revealed details made available to developers suggest that the rounded wearable will feature a rotating bezel as a key form of input, and a multitude of sensors. These include an accelerometer, heart-rate monitor, pressure sensor, magnetic sensor and GPS. Rumoured specifications include a Samsung-made Exynos 3472 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 768MB of RAM, 4GB of external storage, and a 250mAh.

Samsung will officially unveil the Gear S2 at its press conference at German tech conference IFA on September 3 (Berlin time).
