Samsung Galaxy Gear to launch at IFA 2013

Samsung

Smartwatches are becoming the next big thing in mobile technology, and Samsung’s rumored offering, the Galaxy Gear, has garnered lots of attention. Now, Samsung fan site SamMobile says that they have confirmed that the Galaxy Gear will indeed launch at IFA 2013 alongside the Galaxy Note III. If this is true, then IFA 2013 could be a very exciting show with both Sony and Samsung showing off some very cool products.

Samsung Galaxy Gear

As for the Galaxy Gear, not a whole lot is known about it yet. We believe that it will look something like the patent picture you can see above, but there’s no telling for sure. Either way, we’re glad to see a new smartwatch coming to the market, especially from Samsung. With Samsung helping to pioneer the way in flexible displays, we might even see one of those integrated into the Galaxy Gear. Unlikely, but possible.

Are you excited for the Galaxy Gear?

    I think there is a big push by Samsung to release their tech watch before Apple. The last thing they want is Apple to get sue-happy again saying they invented the tech watch. Tim Cook recently said that Apple will be moving into “the potential of exciting new product categories”. I am presuming this is possibly an Apple TV (actual television monitor with Apple TV baked in), a possible iWatch, and cheaper iPhone. He does go on to say that a lot of “exciting new products” will be dropped in 2014.

    I can’t wait to watch this and see what happens.

      Apple TV has been long described as DOA. No one is interested in it. Theres even less want for a cheaper iPhone from what I read on Apple blogs (i go there to stir shit, lol) They think it will undermine how exclusive the iPhone is, go figure. Anything “exciting” from Apple these days tend to be directly borrowed from someone else. Exciting products for 2014 ?? the new iPad which will be exactly like the old iPad, but since it will come out next year in a different color box, it will be “new”. Now we’re getting iphone 5c, d, or some other shit ? WTF talk about confusing. But i guarantee some iClown will buy all 3 because theyre each special in their own way.

        I agree.

        It still creates competition which is good for consumers. I don’t have a stake in Android or iOS, I want all platforms to succeed, including Win8 phone.

        It still doesn’t change my opinion that I am excited to see what both Samsung and Apple have to offer in the realm of wearable tech (as well as other manufacturers.) I find it interesting how they go about different ways to complete the same task.

    Been looking for a smartwatch, hopefully this will be what have been waiting for and at the right price, for some reason, the design that they have been showing appeals to me, would be nice if it sticks.
