Alongside the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, we’re told to expect the Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch at the South Koreans’ September 4 launch event.
A couple of days ago we looked at Samsung Galaxy Gear specs and features, and now we’re told when to expect it, and in what colours.
Unsurprisingly, credit goes to SamMobile, which is pretty much King of Samsung rumours and generally quite on the ball.
Starting with the Samsung Galaxy Gear release date (actually, that should be shipping date, more accurately), we’re looking at week 39 (w/c September 23) or week 40 (w/c September 30) depending on colour.
Specifically, it’ll be week 39 for the Samsung Galaxy Gear in white, orange, grey and black, and SamMobile promises “catchy” marketing names come release. I’m putting this month’s salary on Chalk White, Orange Walk, Grey Hairs and Black Death.
Not to be outdone by the rumoured gold iPhone 5S, a White Gold Samsung Galaxy Gear will supposedly ship the week after its brothers.
SamMobile notes that those dates might change “back or forth” by “a week or two”, which effectively gives a one-month window. Brilliant.
Still no word on Samsung Galaxy Gear price, but it’ll be interesting to see how these bad boys sell. Smartwatches are far from a new concept, but with Samsung and probably Apple putting their weight behind them, they’re tipped to be The Next Big Thing in tech.
