Samsung’s ‘Galaxy Gear’ smartwatch reportedly confirmed for IFA debut

Samsung Galaxy Gear Release Date

Samsung has already confirmed that it has been developing a smartwatch to counter a similar device that Apple may or may not launch some day. While various chatter repeatedly pointed to Samsung’s “Unpacked” press conference at IFA next month as the likely date the company would take the wraps off of its new smartphone companion, a new report claims Samsung’s plans are now set in stone. SamMobile, which has a good track record when reporting on Samsung’s plans, claims to have confirmed with its sources that Samsung will indeed unveil the “Galaxy Gear” smartwatch at IFA on September 4th. Samsung will also debut its new Galaxy Note III phablet during its IFA press conference, and rumored specs include a 5.7-inch display, a 2.3GHz Snapdragon 800 processor or an eight-core Exynos 5 Octa chipset depending on region, 3GB of RAM and Android 4.3 Jelly Bean.
