A set of concept images for Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Gear smartwatch has been developed based on a recently discovered patent application for such a product.

The images suggest that the smartwatch would offer a large, flexible display and will be available in a variety of colors.

From what we can see so far, the images are color versions of the pictures provided by Samsung in a recently discovered patent application for a smartwatch product. However, we will note that those images did not actually offer any user interface details, which are imagined in today’s pictures.

Since spotting the original sketches, we did remark the obvious hint at a flexible display, although we also told you that such images in patent application do not always show the design of a final product.


As for the Samsung smartwatch, word on the street is that the product will be announced simultaneously with the Galaxy Note 3 at IFA 2013 early next month.

In addition to the patent we mentioned, we’ve seen more evidence suggesting that Samsung is actively developing such a product, including a trademark application for Galaxy Gear and even a code name for the product SM-V700.
