Samsung Galaxy Gear, an Android powered smart watch, is said to be unveiled on September 4 alongside Note 3, according to new reports. The South Korean giant is mum about its first smart watch; however, Bloomberg and Sam Mobile have come with inside details in respect to Galaxy Gear. Samsung reportedly wants to reveal its intelligent watch, a little early than Apple iWatch to grab eye-balls.
According to Bloomberg, Samsung Galaxy Gear will be unveiled next month that can receive/make calls, surf the web and handle e-mails. The reveal was made to Bloomberg by two concerned persons familiar with the matter. The report further says intelligent watch by Samsung will be powered by Android. The device is expected to go on sale this year itself.
It will carve a niche for sure as this is an initial product in the market," said Chung Chang Won, an analyst at Nomura Holdings Inc. in Seoul. "Wearable devices could be one of the trends in the smartphone market, but I'm not sure yet whether watches or glasses will set the trend." (Via Bloomberg)
" The Galaxy Gear being released next month won't have a flexible display, though the company is continuing to work on developing a bendable screen, one person said. It will be unveiled the same day as Samsung's Galaxy Note 3, a combination smartphone and tablet computer."
This could mean that Samsung is still unsure about Flexible display technology. Rumors say that Apple iWatch would be made by using Flexible display.
Meanwhile, Sam Mobile, also shares some pretty inside details about Galaxy Gear. Samsung Galaxy Gear watch will be officially introduced at the unpacked Episode 2 event. Sam Mobile also managed to provide the model no - SM-V700. However, it will be a companion accessory used with Galaxy watches.
