Samsung Wristwatch Phone Coming in Sept

Wristwatch seems to be the new hyped future electronics everybody is talking about. Apple, Google, Samsung and other electronics manufacturers are supposedly working on these new wearable devices that will not only make phone calls but will also let you surf the Web and do other things.

Looks like Samsung is taking the lead.

Today, Bloomberg is reporting that Samsung will introduce a new wristwatch phone called the Galaxy Gear next month that can work as your phone including making phone calls, text, emails and browse the Internet.

The Galaxy Gear will be unveiled on Sept 04 and will be powered by Android.

From the article:

“It will carve a niche for sure as this is an initial product in the market,” said Chung Chang Won, an analyst at Nomura Holdings Inc. in Seoul. “Wearable devices could be one of the trends in the smartphone market, but I’m not sure yet whether watches or glasses will set the trend.”

The Galaxy Gear being released next month won’t have a flexible display, though the company is continuing to work on developing a bendable screen, one person said. It will be unveiled the same day as Samsung’s Galaxy Note 3, a combination smartphone and tablet computer.
