Samsung to Unveil Galaxy Gear Smartwatch Line September 4
Lee Young-hee, executive vice president of Samsung's mobile business, told The Korea Times in an interview that its smart watch design will be called Galaxy Gear and that it won't use a flexible display.
"We will be introducing a new wearable concept device called Galaxy Gear at our own event in Berlin on September 4," Lee said. "The Gear won't have a flexible display. The new device will enhance and enrich the current smart mobile experience in many ways."
Whether or not consumers flock to smart watches from companies like Samsung and Apple is still up in the air since neither firm has yet offered one. Samsung, however, is confident that its Galaxy Gear will "add meaningful momentum to the mobile industry."
