Samsung is on the loose! While the first days of August will bring us the South Korean manufacturer’s new phablet, the Galaxy Note 7, a device we’re definitely looking forward to, a new wearable is also expected to make its debut in September. We’re talking about the Samsung Gear S3 smartwatch, the successor of last year’s Gear S2, apparently scheduled to make its debut at IFA 2016, in Madrid.
One aspect that could confirm the release of the wearable is the fact that last year, right after introducing the Galaxy Note 5 in august, Samsung also teased the Galaxy S2’s announcement. Considering that the manufacturer is planning to follow the same pattern, we might as well see the Gear S3 in September.
A few weeks ago, a set of leaked sketches depicting a special limited edition of the Samsung Gear S3 was revealing the same circular design, a for factor which seems to be preferred by Sammy lately. However, there wasn’t any specific information about the smartwatch until today, when SamMobile, a reliable source, confirmed that the Gear S3 will also bring back the rotary bezel seen on the previous model. One thing is clear, though: it will be running Samsung’s operating system for wearable, Tizen, preferred over Google’s Android Wear.
When it comes to new features, we expect to see a smartwatch with standalone functionality, meaning that you won’t need to pair it with a smartphone in order to use it at full capacity. Otherwise, it should pack a faster processor, more RAM and finally, more internal storage.
It will be very curious to see how the Samsung Gear S3 will perform in terms of battery, since it’s not a secret that most of nowadays’ smartwatches – well, except Pebble – need to be recharged daily.
Even though IFA 2016 will start on September 2, Samsung will most likely announce their new smartwatch one day earlier. Keep an eye on our blog, as we will be back with more details on this topic as soon as anything new comes up!
