IFA 2016 | Samsung Gear S3 to feature a rotary bezel
The successor of the popular Samsung Gear S2 smartwatch has been in the rumor mill for a while and now SamMobile has just confirmed a few key facts. As far as rumors go, they confirmed the September launch date and the fact that the Gear S3 will keep the round shape of its predecessor.
"We can reveal today that the Gear S3 follows in the footsteps of its predecessor and makes use of a rotary bezel which basically means that Samsung’s next smartwatch is round as well," writes SamMobile. Their exclusive article on the upcoming smartwatch also confirms that Samsung plans to unveil the Gear S3 at IFA 2016 in Berlin, this September.
IFA 2016 is scheduled to run between September 2 and September 7. This consumer electronics trade show previously hosted all the launch events of Galaxy Note handsets. However, the next-gen Note will launch next week, on August 2, so the Gear S3 will be able to draw all the attention one month later.
