    Speculation has been rife that Samsung might introduce their first smartwatch along with the Galaxy Note III at the UNPACKED Episode 2 event on September 4th, and now we can confirm that Samsung will indeed unveil the Galaxy Gear smartwatch on the same day it takes the wraps off its third-generation Note, the specs of which we confirmed earlier.

    The Galaxy Gear (SM-V700) will act as a companion accessory for Samsung's Galaxy phones, and while no one knows what it will look like (though patent filings gave us a pretty good idea), it might possibly have a flexibly display.

    We'll have some more info on the smartwatch later on, so stay tuned.
