Samsung will announce a new Gear S smartwatch at IFA 2017

Samsung Gear S3 official

The Samsung Gear S smartwatch lineup will get a new addition next week, according to one Samsung executive.

Following the big unveiling of the Galaxy Note 8, DJ Koh, Samsung’s President of Mobile, spoke with CNBC and confirmed that his company will have an announcement to make during the IFA trade show next week in Berlin, Germany. The focus will be on a wearable, as Koh confirmed the newest member of the Gear S wearables lineup will be unveiled.

Unfortunately, Koh wasn’t able to go into any real detail about the upcoming smartwatch. He did tease a bit of what the wearable might feature, though, suggesting that health features might be a big push for the wearables industry as a whole. It seems like a safe bet Samsung will continue to focus on health-related features for the new wearable.

As of now, we’ll have to wait until next week to see Samsung’s newest smartwatch. What are you hoping the new wearable bring to the table?
