What is known for sure is that Samsung will be launching the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 during its Unpacked Event at IFA in Berlin, on the 4th September 2013.
Now rumour has it that Samsung will try and steal Apple’s thunder and launch also its own smartwatch, aptly named the Galaxy Gear smartwatch.
Personally, having used a Pebble smartwatch, I just cannot see the need. And who wears a watch nowadays. If you want to know the time, don’t you normally look at your phone for the time?
Galaxy Gear is supposedly running an Exynos 4212 dual-core chip at 1.0 GHz, a gigabyte of RAM, support for Bluetooth and NFC, and a two-megapixel camera, a 1.67 or 2.5 inch 320 x 320 OLED panel. And phone calls will be possible.
So would you buy one?
