Italian technology journalist Antonio Monaco has confirmed an older rumor, so it looks like the Galaxy Tab S3 and the Gear S3 will arrive at IFA 2016.

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.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
