However, according to the latest report from South Korea, the company will unveil the Gear Solo at its pre-IFA event on September 3, alongside the new Galaxy Note 4 phablet. It should be mentioned that the Gear Solo will come with an independent mobile connectivity feature, which will enable users to make and receive calls from the device itself and won't have to depend on the parent device.

Since the device has not been spoken about much by the company, the specs of the Gear Solo is not known. But since it comes with the 'Gear' tag, you can expect the Gear Solo to have a similar build. It may also get some of the same features, such as the heart rate monitor.

So far, Samsung's wearable devices do not have their own communication functions and must be attached to a smartphone to make calls or exchange e-mails or text messages. So the Gear Solo will mark the beginning of the new independent smartwatch, which can solely function without being paired with a smartphone. This also means that it will have a SIM card slot.


Talking about the availability of the device, Samsung's Unpacked event will be held on September 3 where the maker of the Galaxy S5 is expected to announce the Galaxy Solo and the Galaxy Note 4.
