samsung gear 2 review 1

Samsung could be readying yet another smartwatch for release before the year is out, as it bids to go head-to-head with Apple in the booming market for wearable technology.

The Gear 2 landed just six months ago. If you’ve got especially long memory, you’ll also recall that the original Gear tipped up six months before that.

And today it looks like bi-annual Gear smartwatch refreshes could be a permanent fixture of the tech calendar, after reports surfaced claiming that Samsung is developing the third-gen model for an official unveiling alongside the fourth edition of its Galaxy Note phablet in September.

According to sources cited by the Korea Herald, Samsung’s strategy will see the “next generation of the Samsung Gear 2, and it will be sold in a bundle package with the upcoming Galaxy Note 4”.

Nam Dae-jong, an analyst from Hana Daetoo Securities, commented: “Samsung is trying to shorten the release cycle since other rivals, including Apple and LG Electronics, are expected to roll out their own smartwatches.”

As well as support for the Note range’s calling-card S-Pen stylus, the Note 4 is expected to feature an eight-core processor, a 20.7-megapixel camera and the same biometric security technology that debuted on the Galaxy S5.

It's also been mooted that a flexible screen could figure. Although given how often that rumour comes up in conjunction with Samsung phones, we've stopped paying it much mind.

Samsung is expected to once again lift the lid on the Note 4 at the IFA tech expo in Berlin.
