Samsung Gear S3 to be announced on August 31st

Samsung Gear Launch 2016 invitationMark your calendars! Samsung today announced that its next press event will take place on August 31st. Dubbed the New Gear Launch Event, Samsung plans to “talk about 3.” Throw in a circular watch face and it’s almost certain that the company will use the event to announce the Samsung Gear S3 smartwatch. Add in the “timely innovation” mention from the teaser video announcing the event and it’s all but guaranteed.

The invitation reveals little else about the new smartwatch. For their part, rumours have hinted that Samsung could unveil three variants, the Gear S3 Classic, Gear S3 Explorer and Gear S3 Frontier. All three are expected to come with a round display with rotating bezel. New sensors, including a barometer and a speedometer, a GPS chipset and upgraded hardware are also expected on some if not all three new models.

The Samsung New Gear Launch Event will take place on August 31st at 1800 CET (1300 ET) at the Tempodrom in Berlin. It will also be livestreamed for those unable to make it to Germany in person.
