Samsung to unveil Galaxy Gear smartwatch during September 4 event
| by tech2 News Staff |
Here’s some fresh buzz on the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch. While there have been rumours in the past surrounding its date of unveiling, guys at SamMobile claim they can confirm that Samsung will be lifting the curtain on its upcoming wearable gadgetry during its September 4 event.
Galaxy Gear to be unveiled on September 4?
South Korean giant Samsung Electronics is scheduled to unveil its Galaxy Note III phablet at its UNPACKED Episode 2 event on September 4, and if the report holds any water, then the Galaxy Gear unveiling will accompany it. Reportedly, the smartwatch will act as a companion accessory for Samsung’s Galaxy smartphones.
Earlier this month, a report on the Dutch site Galaxy Club revealed a trademark filing on USPTO's website related to a new range of smart devices named as "Galaxy Gear". In the filing, Samsung describes it as, “Wearable digital electronic devices in the form of a wristwatch, wrist band or bangle capable of providing access to the Internet and for sending and receiving phone calls, electronic mails and messages; wearable electronic handheld devices in the form of a wristwatch, wrist band or bangle for the wireless receipt, storage and/or transmission of data and messages and for keeping track of or managing personal information; smart phones; tablet computers; portable computers.”
Though Samsung has confirmed that the company is working on a smartwatch, no official details are out yet. Going by the rumours, the smartwatch is expected to come equipped with a camera, a GPS chip and a TV receiver. It is likely to come with an arm band and should be bike mountable too. It could serve as health monitor and will probably tie in with the S Health Android app.
