Samsung Gear 3 to sport curved display, lack a camera?

With two Gear smartwatches already out in markets, it’s been expected that Samsung will launch a Gear 3 sometime in the future, along with a plethora of other wearable devices, including the Gear VR virtual reality headset. Today, PocketNow is offering details on the next-generation Gear, and according to their source, the biggest change the Gear 3 will introduce is a curved display, not unlike the one seen on the Gear Fit, with thin side bezel. The smartwatch will apparently be more curved than the Gear Fit, and will employ a Super AMOLED display with “impressive brightness and color saturation.”

However, while the display will be a massive improvement, the Gear 3 will also lack a key feature that has separated Samsung’s smartwatches from others. The Gear 3 will reportedly lack a camera – it’s likely most won’t miss a camera, but it will surely irk a few who have gotten used to using the camera on their smartwatch for taking quick snaps. Also, while the camera might be present, it is said the Gear 3 might sport a radio for cellular connectivity, though it isn’t clear if this will have any effect on the rumored Gear Solo’s launch.

According to the source of the above information, the Gear 3 is being prepared for a September launch as has been rumored before, which means it could be announced alongside the Galaxy Note 4. As always, everything should be taken with a pinch of salt, as things might change in the weeks leading up to the launch of the third-generation Gear smartwatch.
