Samsung smartwatch called ‘Galaxy Gear’, trademark filing confirms

Samsung’s smartwatch has been rumored to be named Galaxy Gear, but there haven’t exactly been concrete pointers towards the fact. Until now, that is, as a trademark filing has confirmed that name, indicating the watch will be a part of the Galaxy family, which isn’t surprising considering it will be a companion accessory for the company’s smartphones and tablets.

The Galaxy Gear is expected to sport model number SM-V700, if previous leaks are to be believed, and its (concept?) design was also revealed in a patent filing. It is expected to be unveiled on September 4 where Samsung will also be announcing the Galaxy Note III.
