Samsung Gear S3 and Galaxy Tab S3 might launch in September
In the past, Samsung unveiled the new Galaxy Note flagships during the IFA trade show. However, this year things will be different. Since the next-gen Note phablet is expected to show up on August 2 in New York, the company has something else ready to unveil in September. Although this still has to be officially confirmed, it looks like the next-gen Gear smartwatch will show up at IFA next to a new Galaxy Tab slate.
The rumor is not new, but Italian technology journalist Antonio Monaco has just confirmed it on Twitter. He also mentioned that Samsung Gear S3 will look like a regular wristwatch and will have a built-in GPS module. Unfortunately, he has no information about the Galaxy Tab S3 to share at this time.
Samsung updated the Galaxy Tab S2 earlier this year, but a completely new model seems like an excellent companion for a new smartwatch. After all, most wearables by tech giants like Samsung, LG, or Apple launch next to a smartphone or a phablet, but a tablet might not be a bad choice, either. Since Samsung still has to confirm the devices they plan to bring at IFA 2016, we still need to take all the above with a grain of salt for now.
