Samsung at IFA 2016, watch the Gear S3 presentation tonight on live streaming
Countdown to the IFA 2016 held in Berlin, one of the most important events dedicated to the world of technology, and to open the closure, August 31 at 18:00 pm, Samsung will prepare an “Unpacked event” where the Korean company should present, among other things, its new smartwatch Gear S3.
Recently, in the meantime, just as we are talking about wearable devices, Samsung has announced a partnership with different carriers to sell in Europe the smartwatch Gear S2 Classic 3G with integrated ESim, thanks to which you can connect the device to the network without the need of inserting a real Sim inside; thus, the Gear S2 will be able to make calls, send and receive text messages, view notifications, email and more without needing to be connected to a smartphone.
But focusing on today’s topic, Samsung has once again chosen the Berlin annual event to unveil its next-generation smartwatch, after exactly one year since the company introduced the Gear S2, with which the new model is expected to share a similar round design and rotating bezel. But at IFA 2016, open to the public from September 2 to 7, there is not only the South Korean giant, but a slew of tech companies: from Sony to LG, from Panasonic to Huawei, and in the foreground the new smartphones and virtual reality technologies.
Anyway, according to the latest rumors, Samsung plans to release three variants of its new smartwatch this year -Gear S3 Classic, Gear S3 Frontier and Gear S3 Explorer. The three variants are similar, but each will have dedicated data with an Explorer which will be oriented towards people living a different lifestyle because it will have an integrated GPS, a speedometer, barometer, altimeter and more.
The official presentation of Gear S3 will be happening today, August 31, in an event scheduled at 18:00 CET at Tempodrom, Berlin, Germany. If you are not there at that time, you still can watch the event live streaming, where the presentation of the new smartwatch Gear S3 will be, on samsung.com/galaxy website or directly in the player above, through the Samsung official video from YouTube.
