The showcased gadgets appear to be more sleek than their predecessors that were known to be a little on the 'bulkier side'. And even though the devices retains some of the earlier specs, such as 1.63in 320x320 AMOLED display and 512MB of RAM, they run on Samsung’s own Tizen operating system and not Android.
