With IFA 2014 just around the corner, we’re seeing an abundance of leaks regarding devices we already know about, and ones we didn’t know existed. Such is the case with a new version of the Samsung Gear 3 which is tipped to be headed our way in a few short weeks.
There have been rumblings in regards to Samsung putting out a new smartwatch called the Gear Solo. Pocketnow has learned new details on the latter, and it looks like Sammy may have a slight design change in mid for the third generation of Gear.
According to their sources, the Gear 3 will feature a curved display similar to the Gear Fit but more in line with the Gear 2. Basically, it won’t look like a big square this time around, and it should conform to the curve of your wrist – like the Gear fit, but wider. It’s said to have a “very pronounced curve” and possibly a bright AMOLED display.
The Samsung Gear 3 will stick with the Tizen OS and may have a larger home button. They’ve also ditched the camera, but cellular connectivity seems to be on the table. This would be a big deal, especially if the Gear 3 is a wider, more powerful version of the Gear Fit.
We know Samsung is going to show off a lot of gear at IFA 2014, and the report lists September as a probable release date for the Gear 3 smartwatch. If Sammy’s new smartwatch looks sharp and makes calls, it could give the Moto 360 some competition when it does hit the streets.
Would a curved Gear 3 sway you from the Moto 360 or iWatch this fall?
