Confirming the rumours circulating around the web for a long time, Samsung has revealed that it will out its next smartwatch in its Unpacked 2 event scheduled for the 4th of September.
The company will also launch its Note III smartphone there.
While it won’t be the first time that Samsung will be launching such a device, the new product is by far the most anticipated. Putting life to all the hopes, Samsung Mobile executive, Lee Young-Hee has herself confirmed the so-called Galaxy Gear smartwatch in an interview to Korean times. She also confirmed that the display of the watch won’t be flexible.
“We have intellectual properties for patents related to the next wearable devices”, she says. Those are the concepts for future products”. Here she might’ve also hinted that it won’t be cheap either.
Right now, most of the smartwatches available pair tightly with your phone for content integration and syncing. It will be interesting whether Samsung will be able to achieve more in this category without sacrificing on the user interface and efficiency.
