By Gary Cutlack on at

Samsung might be the first of the big mobile tech players to officially launch a take on the smartwatch concept, with rumours suggesting the Samsung Galaxy Gear wrist thing will appear at next month's IFA tech event.

The news comes via Samsung fan site SamMobile, which claims the Samsung Galaxy Gear (also known as the SM-V700), will be officially unveiled alongside the Galaxy Note III at Samsung's September 4th Unpacked event. We still know very little about Samsung's so-called smartwatch, although images in patent filings (above) may give us a clue as the physical appearance. [SamMobile via Techradar]
