Samsung Smartwatch Reveal Set For September 4?
SamMobile is reporting that Samsung is planning to announce a smartwatch at their upcoming ‘Unpacked’ event on September 4 in Berlin. While not much is known about the watch, a patent filing (pictured) gives some clues, with rumors that the watch may feature a flexible screen.
The Galaxy Note III is also expected to be announced at the event.
I’ve been using a Pebble Smartwatch for a while now and really like it, although there’s a few things lacking and it definitely feels like a ‘first-gen’ device. For example I bet the Pebble’s monochrome, 144 x 168 pixel resolution would look pretty dated next to a high resolution color screen. With the Pebble now available to the masses through Best Buy and (presumably) selling well I guess it’s only a matter of time until the big tech companies try to outdo it.
