Confirmed: Samsung's Galaxy Gear Smartwatch To Launch September 4

The long-awaited smartwatch will debut 6 days ahead of Apple's iPhone event.

Samsung has confirmed a September 4 launch date for its Galaxy Gear smartwatch, which the company will unveil at its own event in Berlin ahead of the Galaxy Note 3 launch at the IFA consumer electronics trade show.

In an exclusive interview with The Korea Times Samsung's executive vice president of mobile Lee Young-hee also confirmed the Galaxy Gear will not have a flexible display, answering a running question.

September is gearing up to be a big month for technology: The Galaxy Gear launch date is just six days ahead of Apple's own event, at which it is expected to debut new iPhones, but not the supposedly competing iWatch smartwatch.
