The smart watch of the South Korean company is one of the devices that could be presented next month at the Samsung Unpacked event. This possibility was already known a few weeks ago. However, now SamMobile says it can confirm that the Samsung Galaxy Gear will indeed be unveiled on September 4.
SamMobile confirms it
The remarkable thing is not knowing the date, something we already knew from the rumors that had been arriving for weeks. What is really important is the fact that SamMobile has decided to say that they confirm that the launch will occur on that date. Actually, it is a blog like Android Help, but it has long been specialized in Samsung smartphones. We can say that of all the blogs specialized in Galaxy, this is the most important. And if any media can have information about what will be released on September 4, SamMobile is undoubtedly one of them. Thus, the confirmation on your part is practically the confirmation by Samsung.
Autonomous clock, or dependent?
What we do not know yet is what the Samsung Galaxy Gear will be like. We know that it will be a smart watch, but we don’t know if it will be a standalone device, or if it will be a watch that will depend on a smartphone. In SamMobile they unequivocally point to this last possibility, which makes us think that the watch will be launched as an accessory to the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and other high-end smartphones of the company. This is a bit sad, no doubt, because everyone was waiting for the new paradigm, the new device that would unseat smartphones. For now, it seems that we will have to wait, both to know new data about this Samsung Galaxy Gear, and for smart watches to end up taking over from smartphones as the means of communication today.
