Almost all of us know that there is a lot of rumors and reports in the past few months claiming that Apple is working on its own smart watch entitled as "iWatch"... But it looks like that there is another big company working on the same idea, guess whom ? Yes it is Samsung !
Now, this category is still fairly new, so we really don’t know what to expect to see on Wednesday. But if these images from VentureBeat are legitimate, Samsung’s Galaxy watch will feature a 3-inch display and a chunky design…
Check out VentureBeat report
“Samsung is set to reveal its Galaxy Gear smartwatch next Wednesday, Sept. 4, in Berlin. But this weekend, we got a first look at the watch.
Here it is.
…this weekend, a source showed us one of the prototypes sent to developers and a few select partners. Note that Samsung is highly security conscious in protecting its designs, and occasionally sends off prototypes that don’t mirror the final design. But it won’t be far off.”
This is not a new thing we learned from Samsung, the company is trying with the possible ways to beat Apple, but everyone know who will win this match...
The image above you see was taken from from an internal promotional marketing video for the watch, which Farr says was developed by an independent team working closely with Samsung. She wasn’t able to photograph the watch itself.
So now there is a great probability that Samsung is working on its own Smart watch, but we didn't ask ourselves how it will looks like or what is its features... As for the device, it’s said to feature a 3-inch OLED display and both Bluetooth and Wi-Fi for connecting to other S-family gadgets and the web. It also has a 4-megapixel camera built into the strap, and tiny speakers built into the clasp.
And of course, it’ll have all kinds of software features as well: S-Voice voice commands, apps for social and health tracking, and integration with Samsung smartphones and tablets. It will also be able to initiate calls and access the web.
Time will tell if Samsung’s Galaxy Gear watch becomes a must-have. I personally think it’s way too bulky to appeal to the average consumer, and its 10 hour battery life is really disappointing. But it might appeal to fitness/gadget junkies.
So here we go, another big war coming and I hope you get ready, because September 10 is coming after a few days...
