Samsung Gear smartwatch to launch along Note 3, report claims
Without specifying any sources, Sam Mobile just “confirmed” that Samsung Gear will be launched on September 4 at the Unpacked 2 press event in Berlin. The device will supposedly bear the SM-V700 designation. Details on its appearance and features are scarce for now, but the device will reportedly work in tandem with the Note 3.
What is Samsung Gear? It’s a smartwatch, a wearable computer that will supposedly connect and work with Samsung smartphones. A design patent that Samsung filed in South Korea last month potentially gives us a good idea of what the Gear looks like. Based on these schematics, some creative folks created the renders you can see at the top of this post.
Sam Mobile has a relatively good track record when it comes to delivering information that Samsung would probably like to remain confidential. Today’s report also seems to corroborate a report about Samsung Gear that we got from Korean media earlier this month.
Will Samsung be the first major player to market a wearable device? Chances for that are pretty good, we think.
