Samsung VP of mobile products Lee Young-hee has confirmed that the rumored Gear smartwatch will appear on 4 September together with the Galaxy Note 3. The device will enrich the current smartphone experience and is targeted at hip young people. Other bits of information reflect that the Gear won’t feature a flexible display, but future wearable device will get it, as Samsung holds significant patents in this regard.
According to the Digitimes, wearable devices such as smartwatches won’t be big-time moneymakers for technology makers. As the hardware they use is undemanding and affordable, the market will get flooded with cheap Android smart-watches from no-name Chinese manufacturers in the same way budget Android tablets have been selling in many parts of the world.Source: Android Authority
