Samsung Galaxy Note 4 to be bundled with a new Gear 3 smartwatch?
posted by Florin T. / Jun 02, 2014, 6:41 PM
According to undisclosed industry sources that talked to The Korea Herald, Samsung’s next-gen smartwatch (possibly called Gear 3) should be bundled with the upcoming Galaxy Note 4, which is expected to be officially announced in September. Last year, both the Galaxy Note 3 and the first Galaxy Gear were unveiled at IFA in September, so we shouldn’t be surprised to see Samsung doing something similar this year, with new models.
While there is no word on what the Gear 3 will bring, we assume it’s going to be based on Tizen - like the Gear 2 (pictured above) and Gear 2 Neo.
Before introducing the Gear 3, Samsung is expected to launch a smartwatch called Gear 2 Solo. This may resembles the current Gear 2 model, but it should add support for SIM cards - thus allowing users to place calls without the help of a paired smartphone. The alleged Gear Solo could be available as soon as July in South Korea and the US.
Samsung is also working on a smartwatch based on Google’s Android Wear. This, too, could be introduced later this year - but we'll see what happens.

Woooooow that's sounds too good to be true to bundle a smart watch with a flagship phone it probably will be in the $399 range on a contract then who's knows.

It depends on how they price it. I'd say that it should be no more than $400 on a 2 year contract with ANY carrier. I know one thing......the Note 4 better be 2-3 steps ahead of the Note 3 since it'll share the same screen size

Hey what is this Samsung news doing here today? Apple only gets about 5 days per year where they actually have real news shouldn't this Samsung rumor been held off till tomorrow out of courtesy for the underdog?

I'm guessing the non-Apple news is something of a public service benefit for the PhoneArena users. It's common knowledge that too much iNews in one day is somewhat toxic for most people. Basically it is somewhat sickening to the stomach seeing so much of Android (or whatever Apple is copying) being copied by Apple, spraypainted white, and then claimed to be Apple innovations.

Interesting term, "underdog." Last I saw, Apple still made the best-selling tablet, smartphone, and laptop, and Samsung makes the best-selling...phablet? Apple still makes the biggest share of mobile profit, and Samsung is second. I do not think the term "underdog" means what you think it means.

Samsung has to get their smartwatch program going somehow. Otherwise it will end up just like "3D TV" -- a solution without a problem. Hopefully Samsung will focus on better battery life and secure support for third party apps.
