Samsung fansite SamMobile claims that the much-rumored “Galaxy Gear” smartwatch will debut at the “Samsung Unpacked Episode 2” event, which is taking place at the IFA exhibition in Berlin, Germany on September 4.
The website, which has also been a constant source of Samsung tablet rumors in recent times, says that the smartwatch will act as a companion device to the firm’s collection of Galaxy smartphones and tablets.
Previous reports have indicated that Samsung will take the wrap off a smartwatch and the third-generation Galaxy Note phablet at the German tech exhibition.
Citing unnamed sources, Greek tech site Techblog reports that the tablet will be called the G Pad and will feature an 8.3-inch 1920 x 1080 display, a quad-core processor and 2GB of RAM.
The website adds that the bezels will be super slim, allowing users to put the device in their pocket, and claims that the tablet will be made of aluminum.
LG is expected to announce the tablet at the IFA tech exhibition in Berlin, Germany next month, where TabTimes will be reporting live.
LG exec Steve Koh yesterday confirmed that the electronics manufacturer plans to re-enter the tablet market, just one year after the firm first got out of that line of business.
The unique devices feature a sensor, processor, zoom lens, WiFi connectivity and an SD card slot, but no display or other typical controls (beyond a zoom toggle and perhaps a shutter release). The idea is that users will use their handset or tablet to control the lens, adjust framing and transmit images.
Sony hasn’t provided any advance details or acknowledgment the product is in the works, but the company does have a press conference set for September 4 at the IFA conference in Berlin, which could when it plans to announce the new lens cameras.
