See ya Apple – Samsung could launch smartwatch & new Galaxy Note next month

August 2, 2013

Korean-language website AsiaEconomic reports that both devices will be unleashed into the public domain at the event on September 4, and details that the third-generation Galaxy Note will have a 5.7-inch display, 3GB of RAM and an Exynos 5 processor.

No specification details have emerged on the mysterious smartwatch, although fansite SamMobile believes that the device’s R&D division is to be established at the firm’s Germany headquarters in Berlin, fuelling speculation that it could first debut at the local IFA tech exhibition.

Earlier reports have claimed that the device could fall under a new Samsung product line-up called “Gear”. Samsung recently listed that the Gear brand would cover “watches, clocks, wristbands and bracelets.”

Samsung will be hoping to beat Apple and Google to launching the first smartwatch, with both computing giants reportedly working on their own designs.
