During the official IFA welcome conference, CEO of the Berlin Messe (the location of IFA 2013) Christian Göke, confirmed that we would be seeing a smartwatch later today.
“You will see the world’s first smartwatch,” said Christian Göke.
Of course, Göke is factually incorrect about the Galaxy Gear being the first smartwatch, as the Sony SmartWatch 2 has already been unveiled. However, it is interesting that the Galaxy Gear was particularly hightlighted at the IFA press conference.
Teasing the design of the Galaxy Gear smartwatch during his speech, Göke showed off an image that followers of the Samsung smartwatch rumours might find familiar.
The image shown in the presentation looks very similar to the concept designs that have been appearing online of late.
With a slightly curved 3-inch screen, the design is the same as the Galaxy Gear patents discovered earlier this year.
For all the news, rumours and information so far on the Samsung smartwatch head to our Galaxy Gear roundup.
