Samsung's Gear S smartwatch is unlike others in its category in that it does not require a connection to a smartphone. Today, the smartwatch is gaining additional functionality as Opera has announced that it will bring the Mini browser to the Gear S later this year.
Opera Mini for the Gear S will come with the browser's data compression technology, as well as a private browsing mode, Speed Dial and Smart Page, an aggregator that pulls in the latest news and updates from social networks.
The 2-inch screen size isn't exactly conducive to browsing, which is why Opera has mentioned that the Mini browser will have finger-friendly touch controls designed specifically for the smartwatch's curved display. Opera has mentioned that the browser will be available for download by the time the Gear S launches later this year.
