Following an earlier confirmation that Samsung intends to take the wraps off of its Android-powered Galaxy Gear smartwatch during a press conference on September 4th, a new report from Bloomberg reaffirms the plan. The news organization on Friday issued a report stating that its unnamed sources have confirmed Samsung’s upcoming September 4th announcement at IFA in Berlin, Germany. Interestingly, Bloomberg says the Galaxy Gear will “make phone calls, surf the Web and handle e-mails” making no mention of a requirement to connect to a smartphone. Earlier reports suggested that the Gear will be a companion device that must be tethered to a phone for connectivity. Finally, Bloomberg says that the Galaxy Gear will not feature a curved display, as some older rumors had suggested.
