It’s important to note that the image above is not a press render or even a leak image, but rather a render based off the design patent diagrams that Samsung filed last month in Korea. Sam Mobile have, however, ‘confirmed’ the release of the device at the UNPACKED event, via an unnamed source. The user interface visible in the renders is also purely artistic license so we can expect to see something at least mildly different.
The device will feature a large, curved-screen, flexible AMOLED display and who knows what else, and will be designated SM-V700. The Samsung smartwatch has been discussed in tech circles for quite a while, and ever since the patent was filed and inventory lists started showing the device for research and development purposes, the evidence has pointed towards a double launch alongside the Galaxy Note 3.
We’ll give you all the specs as they emerge and give you the full run-down when the new smartwatch is demoed. Would you buy a Samsung smartwatch before considering another third-party device?
