The details surrounding Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Gear smartwatch are coming in at a steady pace these days, and we only have a few more weeks before the company unveils it. Set to be announced on September 4th alongside the Galaxy Note III, the Galaxy Gear will be Samsung’s first Android smartwatch. Today we’ve learned about 5 color variations, and more details on the release date.
According to SamMobile, who’s been quite accurate and hot on the Galaxy Gear trail, the Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch will hit shelves in week 39, which is at the tail end of September. Yesterday we reported a similar date, with the Note III arriving around the second week of the month.
The leakster revealing the end of September date has also confirmed the smartwatch will arrive in 5 fashionable color options. Four on launch, and a 5th “white gold” edition will land a week later, and probably cost quite a bit. The four colors are white, black, orange, and grey, although surely they’ll have nifty names just like the colors of Samsung’s smartphones.
If all goes as planned (if these rumors are accurate) Samsung will launch their new smartwatch the last week of September and into October, just in time for people to start getting ahead of their holiday shopping. And wow, it’s already nearing that time of year. There’s been a lot of talk, hype, and rumors about this watch, and we hope it isn’t so mild that it disappoints after all these high flying rumors.
Stay tuned as we’ll be there live with the details on September 4th.
