Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch concept video teases the future

The past few weeks have been full of rumors surrounding what many expect to see from Samsung in Germany next month for the annual IFA show. From the 5.68-inch Galaxy Note III phablet, to their brand new and first of its kind Galaxy Gear smartwatch. We don't know everything about their new watch yet, but this new conceptual video has us excited about the possibilities.

What you're about to enjoy is a concept video and unofficial 3D rendering of what the Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch could look like, based on leaked trademark images. This is nothing official, but the design comes from actual trademarks filed by Samsung, instead of just a fan made (wishful thinking) render like we've seen on almost every blog as of late, ours included.

Recent reports confirm a 1.6-inch 320x320 resolution touchscreen display for swiping away notifications and the likes, Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and Samsung's usual changes, and all of this will be powered by a 1.5 GHz Exynos 4 dual-core processor and 1GB of RAM. We've heard reports of a built-in speaker in the watch clasp, and even a 2 megapixel camera. For now however, enjoy this neat concept 3D render below.

Now the video above does play off the rumors of it actually having full phone functions, which is still just a rumor for now, but something we're likely not to see this early in Samsung's smartwatch aspirations. It also suggests a 2-inch watch display, that folds open into a full 3.5-inch screen. Again, this is just a concept based on trademark filings and rumors, but it's fun nonetheless.

We'll be live in Berlin for IFA to bring you all the details on the Note III, and this exciting Galaxy Gear smartwatch.

    That’s a lot of tech to fit into that form factor. I know it’s a concept; the real thing probably won’t come close. But if it’s half that cool, I’m in!

    There are just so many things wrong with this. Technically nice render work though.

    so much hype, so many rumor stories… the real thing is going to be a let down after all these amazing renders that you’re turning into articles.

      Yes. It probably will be. Sadly.
