Samsung’s rumored smart watch, the Galaxy Gear, is coming next month, according to a report.
The device, which lets you make phone calls, send emails and surf the web, will be unveiled on Sept. 4, two days before the IFA consumer electronics show in Berlin, according to Bloomberg. This means the device would be announced less than a week before Apple’s expected Sept. 10 iPhone unveiling.
Apple has not confirmed that timing or even that such an event is taking place. The company is expected to announce lower-cost iPhone (likely called the iPhone 5C) and an upgrade to the iPhone 5 (called the iPhone 5S), according to various unconfirmed reports. Apple is also rumored to be working on its own smart watch.
Samsung reps could not be reached for comment on the Bloomberg report. The article does not outline the price of the device or a timeline for availability. Details about technical specs were also scant, though the article does state that the watch would not have a flexible display.
